New place to go for Rewanui Park visitors

A new shelter for visitors has been constructed at the Rewanui Forest Park car park on Rewanui Lane, thanks to a $20,000 grant from Trust House.

The shelter, which measures 7.2 metres by 6m and was a project initiated by Masterton based charity the Montfort Trimble Foundation [MTF], was unveiled last Sunday during the Rewanui Park open day and provides a place for visitors in the event it starts raining.

MTF chair Robin Dunlop said the group has been wanting to build the structure for some time but “unfortunately, we previously didn’t have the necessary funds until Trust House gave us the grant”.

“This is great for the community and offers visitors a dry space if the weather picks up.”

Support to build the structure also came from Mitre 10 Masterton, which provided materials at a reduced cost; Higgins, which levelled the site free of charge; and Duane Poulsen from Polford Contracting, who built the shelter alongside MTF board members.

Dunlop said that there will be some future additions, including a concrete floor, seating, and tables.
