Mai Maketu – April edition

Surf Lifesaving Club On Saturday 28th March we had our Raft Race and Beach games. What a sight! Congratulations to all those that participated in the games. Wow! Never too old, we had people in their 70’s and 80’s running through the sand. And of course the tug-o-war. Shared honours to all. The Raft Race was great fun. So many different designs.

Congratulations to the Rotary Club of Maketu whom were first place winners, also well done to Maketu Kura, Maketu Fire
