Naenae: A lick of fresh paint

The Naenae shopping centre is looking great following the Big Splash Naenae Paintathon held today when locals picked up their brushes to add more shine to the Cambridge Terrace side of the Naenae shopping centre.

Local personality Billy Graham was to the for again, the atmosphere was fantastic, and in the video below you can see Billy in his whites contributing on the scaffold.

Thanks must go Hutt City Council’s retail coordinator Joanna van Walraven, Resene local paint manufacturer who generously supplied paint and Brian Ross who supply painting equipment.

Don’t forget to visit Billys event at the Naenae Community Hall tomorrow night starting at 5pm “How to punch above your weight”.

A great community effort everyone, and it looks great as the video shows.

Naenae’s Billy Graham Boxing and Life Coach

If you don’t know the story of Billy Graham, and you live in the Hutt Valley, then you need too. This gentleman is an inspiration to me, and an asset to our community, his work with youth  and his devotion to this cause.
