Adventure awaits on the Great Taste Trail on Sunday

Written by Media Manager.

Sunday 15th October is a great chance to get your children into the Kiwi Guardians programme.
This is a wonderful partnership between the Department of Conservation (DoC) and Toyota New Zealand. On a local level the team at Bowater Toyota are right behind it and are happily driving the programme right here in the Top of the South. 

A few months ago the Department of Conservation launched two new Kiwi Guardian Trails in the region, one at Sandeman Reserve on the Great Taste Bike Trail just west of Richmond, and another at Jimmy Lee Creek in the Richmond Foothills. Sunday 15th October is a great opportunity on the last weekend of the school holidays to come along and enjoy some fun activities as well as checking out the Kiwi Guardians Trail, and gaining the right to claim a Kiwi Guardians Medal.

A day of inspiration and talk of the next generation of leaders

Written by Media Manager.

170829 evening01Yvonne Bowater of Bowater Hyundai with Netball Royalty Bernice Mene at the event celebrating the Pinnacle Programme and all that it has done for our community.

The Pinnacle Programme is all about inspiration. Taking our high achieving children and teaching them the pathways that lead to being the best version of themselves. Shining a light on those teenagers capable of achieving great great things, but doing so with full support and guidance. 

Tuesday 29th August was a great day for all involved. It represented the next stage of investment for a room full of potential top of the south applicants, and gratification for businesses like Bowater Hyundai that focus heavily on supporting the community. It was a day packed full of inspiration and glimpses of the support and guidance successful applicants would get access to. 

At the core of the Pinnacle Programme is Bernice Mene and her board; a dedicated group of high achievers that have personal experience in making it to the top of their respective fields. They know the hard yards. They have lived them. They also know how hard it is to succeed, and the help along the way that can completely change the outcome for an aspiring and passionate teen. With the help of Hyundai New Zealand they have put up their hands to help guide the next generation of future leaders into a bright future.

The day of events, held in conjunction with the always accommodating NMIT, served as a platform to hear from both Bernice Mene and current local Pinnacle Programme recipient, the amazing artist and leader Grace Wiegand. A chance to inspire. A chance to celebrate. A chance to embrace new opportunities.
