Hastings District Council and the Hawke’s Bay Farmers’ Market are teaming up to celebrate Children’s Day and Cricket World Cup this Sunday, 1 March.

Backyard cricket and ‘bat down’ will feature at the Farmers’ Market at the Hawke’s Bay Showgrounds on Sunday. Participants in the bowling challenge could win tickets to NZ vs. Afghanistan or the West Indies vs. U.A.E. World Cup cricket matches at McLean Park. There will also be a chance to sign a giant cricket bat with a message of support for the Black Caps.

Hastings District Council Events Coordinator Craig Ireson says “We have already had over 500 Hastings and Havelock North residents sign our giant cricket bats at various events around the district. There is a real groundswell of support for the Black Caps, and we want them to know that the whole region is behind them in their quest for glory.” 

My Voice My Choice

Hastings District Council supports the reorganisation of Local Government in Hawke’s Bay. We believe a single council will enable the region to seize the opportunity provided by scale and cohesion. 

Help us create a new playground and family area at Windsor Park.
