Published: 19 June 2018

Parents and children enjoyed a Family Fun Day in April organised by Housing New Zealand and key supporters Dunedin Housing Maintenance Contractors (DHMC), head contractor for the Otago/Southland region.

Held at the Mosgiel Football Club in Memorial Park, the event included family games and activities and pony rides followed by a shared lunch. It was initiated by Dunedin Tenancy Manager Stacey Jackson, who says the families loved having an activity in the school holidays that didn’t cost anything and was fun for everyone.

“They’re already asking when we’re having the next one,” Stacey says.

The Family Fun Day followed a Christmas in the Park event in December.

Stacey says Housing New Zealand could not hold these events without the tremendous support from the Mosgiel community. Many local businesses and groups gave their time, or contributed food or prizes, and are right behind her efforts.

Manager Regional Maintenance Stephen Wilson says DHMC also played a major part in the success of the event.

“They picked up all the equipment, provided the barbeque and food, purchased toys and even arranged the pony rides. Some of their staff came along and helped as well and we really appreciate their support,” Stephen says.
