Good coverage appreciated

LETTER

Re: Coverage lacking . . . May 12 letter.

With regards to Barbara Barwick’s letter, the committee of First Light Fibres were extremely happy with the coverage given to us by The Gisborne Herald. The two-page colour spread in the Weekender was an amazing write-up and included great colour photos. The following two articles were both very supportive of our venture and The Gisborne Herald has our thanks for its sponorship as well for our event.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our major sponsors, Eastland Community Trust, Community Organisation Grants, Eastern & Central Community Trust and Sunshine Foundation for their support, as without their input into our education event it would not have been as successful as it was.

The committee also thanks all the local businesses that supported us. Everything donated towards our raffles was greatly appreciated. And also to the Gisborne public who turned up on Saturday and Sunday in droves . . . and lastly to all our local members who supported our event 100 percent, volunteering their time and muscles to set up and dismantle the Farmers Air Showgrounds Event Centre. Our First Light Fibres committee planned for three years to get to the starting post, and no criticism will curb our enthusiasm.
