WINNER PAINT YOUR TOWN BEAUTIFUL

 

We are pleased  to announce the winning branch for 2016 Paint Your Town Beautiful is Keep Te Aroha Beautiful.   Submitted by Mr Bryan Turner Chair of our newest branch.  We are very excited to work with Bryan on this project and to announce that this will be the site to Launch Paint New Zealand Beautiful Month in March 2016.

Keep Te Aroha Beautiful will work in conjunction with Te Aroha Arts community to complete this mural and the KNZB national office to make arrangements for the unveiling and launch party.  The mural will go in a high foot traffic area on the side wall of Countdown Supermarket Te Aroha which is across the road from the Domain which looks up to the old Spa building – now the district museum..  The history of the Te Aroha Domain is that it was an Edwardian Spa town where people would come to take to the waters.  In its hay day it was bigger than Rotorua and attracted visitors from all over the North Island.  Te Aroha is still the only place in the southern hemisphere that has a hot water soda geyser and people still come to Te Aroha today to soak in the hot soda water spas.

The mural will be an artist’s impression of a fine Edwardian Lady with her head dress, who would have been seem promenading around the Domain in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s.
