The Warkworth Lions Club was awarded the John Frogley Best Environment Project Award for the Kowhai Park upgrade at the recent Lions Area 202K convention held in Whangarei.
Project leader Les Buckton and his team from Lions, along with Forest & Bird, are upgrading the tracks in the park to make it a significant community asset. Lions Area 202K includes 82 clubs from the Coromandel Peninsula to Cape Reinga, as well as Samoa, American Samoa, Fiji and Tonga.
Warkworth president Peter Henderson says it was a notable achievement for the club and highlights the calibre of the Kowhai Park upgrade. John Frogley was a former District Governor and Warkworth Lions member.
