The Mahurangi Community Sport and Recreation Collective’s long-awaited Great Turn On event will be held at the Warkworth Showgrounds on May 19, starting at 4.30pm.
The event has been organised to mark the installation of new state-of-the-art LED lighting at the grounds.
A total of 12 sporting organisations will host activities during the evening with five running skills sessions open to anyone. Warkworth Pony Club will offer pony rides and Warkworth Scouts will host a scavenger hunt. The Warkworth and Districts Museum will hold a display in the Mahurangi Rugby Football Club rooms featuring sporting history from the Warkworth area.
The first 100 people to arrive at the event will receive a stamp card, which will entitle the holder to a free sausage and ice-cream if they attend and receive a stamp from at least six activities.
The event will be started by a nominated local junior sportsperson who has excelled in a sporting activity and will sound a hooter on the night.
Nominations for the junior, who must be under 20, close on May 18.
