Tickets are $60 and include return transport from Matia- tia, a glass of bubbles, a dozen oysters and live blues from Mojo Risers. Call 303 9677 or info@manolwarvine yards.co.nz to book. Keep on truckin' on Father's Day Up close: The island's fire trucks will be on site ready to be checked out -- emergencies not withstanding. Dads and kids can get up close to some big vehicles at the Touch a Truck event on Father s Day. The popular playcentre fun- draiser is from 1pm till 3pm on September 2 at the Onetangi Sports Park. The cost is $5 per family. Event co-ordinator Nicola Bownman says it will be perfect for children of all ages to bring their love of diggers, cars, trucks from their imaginations to a real-life experience. Touch A Truck will bring together more than 20 big trucks and vehicles including fire engines, an ambulance, dig- gers, rollers, a cherry picker, construction trucks, cement trucks, water trucks, motor- bikes and more. It will provide an opportunity for young and old to climb on, explore and get behind the con- trols of many of the vehicles. Activities will include demon- strations from the fire brigade and children will be able to have a go at driving a real dig- ger. Ms Bowman says this year many playcentre children have come to sessions wanting to imi- tate what they have seen in their neighbourhood. We have had loads of play experiences with toy trucks, diggers, road work signs, mak- ing tar, spreading the tar, dir- ecting traffic and more. Wai- heke children have been exposed to plentiful roadworks this year and children have been fascinated by the machin- ery and the process. She says Touch A Truck will be an opportunity for them to get up close to that type of machinery and to experience it. And for those kids who like to smash up their toy cars there will be the opportunity to smash up a real car. We have been donated an old wreck. For a gold coin donation people can try their hand at putting a dent in the car, Ms Bowman says. Children will also enjoy face painting and a sausage sizzle. There will also be raffles with prizes like a helicopter ride, fishing charter, family portrait package and hamper of goodies. Ms Bowman says the event is Waiheke Playcentre s major fundraiser for the year. After 40 years, some of our equipment is in desperate need of updating. This year, our mission has been to complete a centre-wide update of our equipment and resources. We have had support this year from the New Hope Shop, Rotary and the Waiheke Local Board. All funds raised from Touch A Truck will go towards new equipment for the children and for parent edu- cation.
