Slice of thanks for South New Brighton SCIRT crew
South New Brighton woman Wendy McLintock showed her gratitude to the pipe laying crew in her neighbourhood with a cake as they finished their wastewater works on Estuary Road recently.
Work on the wastewater network in Estuary Road, north of Bridge Street, is continuing and further work on the stormwater, pump stations and roading in the Brighton area are being planned.
Wendy, a mother of two children who attend South New Brighton School, is a force for good in her community. She has baked not one but two cakes for SCIRT (Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team) teams since they started work in her neighbourhood last year. As well as baking, Wendy is an enthusiastic sausage sizzler at her children’s school, raising funds for the senior pupils’ camps.
Wendy said she was glad to show her thanks to the March Construction workers, sub-contracted to Fulton Hogan, part of SCIRT. “They’re doing important jobs that have had to be done. I just wanted to say thanks as I know they don’t always get a lot of recognition.”
