Cleaning up Kaituna

There are parts of Dunedin that let our city down due to litter, vandalism, graffiti and general malaise. One area that has concerned the Society for some time is the abandoned Kaituna Tennis and Bowling club on the corner of Serpentine Avenue and Maori Road. The club vacated the premises quite some time ago and the building that was on site was set on fire by vandals. This has left a waste land for vandalism and litter dumping that does little justice to the Town Belt or the neighbouring community. After inspecting the site with DCC Parks Officer Richard McAlevey members of the Society asked whether he could arrange Taskforce Green to clean up the area and remove the rubbish from the site. It’s been a pleasant surprise over the last few weeks to have seen the improvement that the Taskforce Green team have made to the site, with the removal of the redundant fences, graffiti covered walls and the household dumping. Here are some before and after photo’s showing the good work that Taskforce Green undertake in their community, and while it’s not perfect its a good start. Many thanks from the Dunedin Amenities Society, keep up the good work. Click on the pictures to view in a gallery.
