Helensville Athletic Club, which is now in its 11th year, is a wonderful community asset holding track and field events for children from pre-school up to 13 years. Club nights are at Rautawhiri Park on Wednesdays from 5.20pm to 6.30pm in Terms 1 and 4. Competition is encouraged, but the key focus is on staying fit and active, having fun and developing skills and confidence.
The first club night for the new season was held at the end of October 2015.
The club is run by parents and other volunteers from the community. Changes in personnel have meant that currently more people are needed to share the work – duties include managing the database and liaising with the Council, as well as marshalling events on competition nights.
If you have time to spare and would like to help out contact the club through the Facebook page ‘Helensville Athletic Club’ or by phoning Pete Anderson on 420 7479.
