Mahurangi Community Trading Post committee presents a cheque to the Kowhai Swimming Club.
The Mahurangi Community Trading Post donated $5000 to the Kowhai Swimming Club this month.
The money will be used to replace worn out lane dividers at the Mahurangi College pool where the swimmers train.
Swim coach Jill Fayerman says new thicker dividers will help swimmers by reducing “wash” caused by the wake of other swimmers.
She says dividers are particularly important for keeping juniors swimming in a straight line.
The club has a competitive squad, a junior squad and also hosts training for Omaha surf lifesaving juniors.
Trading Post chair John Carr says community clubs can apply to the store for funding in writing.
