Pride of NZ

Shirley Sparks, doyenne of the Te Puna Quarry Park, is a finalist in the Pride of NZ Awards – and needs your vote to win the People’s Choice Award (not that I’m biased or anything!).

Go here to see a lovely short video of Shirley, 85, talking about how and why she started the project to reclaim 32ha of abandoned quarry for the community. If you’re so inclined, you can follow the Vote Now tab at the bottom of the page and cast your vote for Shirley.

Or, click on the People’s Choice tab at the top of the page and see all the most worthy and deserving finalists.
