Block winners Stu Watts and Amy Moore with their builder Dave Wallace will be part of the new Larsen Sawmilling ‘Building Challenge’ at the A&P Show on Saturday afternoon.

The building challenge will be one of two new entertainment features in the main arena that afternoon.

“These are both new and exciting initiatives that we are trying this year,” said Show Association president Norm Thomas.

“The building challenge will feature six two-person teams competing against each other and the clock to put together a piece of Larsen outdoor furniture."

The teams will be sponsored by Subway Gisborne, Bayleys Real Estate, East Coast Farm Vets, Randall Construction, Currie Construction and the Webb Family.

“Confirmed for it are Stu, Amy and Dave, along with Mayor Meng Foon, local photographer Stephen Jones and the Waipaoa Farm Cadets.”

The finished products will be auctioned later in the year at the Terrier races, with the proceeds going towards local Breast Cancer patients.

“The challenge will take place following the Grand Parade in the Main Arena after 2pm on Saturday.”

Organiser Murray Webb said it should be a fun event with some of Gisborne’s celebrities and others jostling for supremacy.

“Keep an ear out for commentator Neville Clark – he is bound to entertain the crowd with his witty one liners.”

Mr Thomas said the second new act involves live music to close out this year's A&P Show.

“We want to promote a relaxing way to finish events and wind up the Show.

“Local band the Mo2s will perform live in the main arena at the conclusion of the Saturday afternoon’s entertainment.

“They will take us into the early evening with a selection of cover songs and the public are welcome to enter the ring, show off some dance moves or kick back around the car boots and enjoy the sounds.”
