New mural lights up Glenmore Rd

Pippins, Brownie and Ranger units in Pakuranga, supported by their adult volunteers have created a work of art that lightens up a vector transformer box located on Glenmore Road, alongside the Guiding Hall the girls use.

Unit leader Louisa Cooper says the project is a “great example of teamwork” within an organisation that has been helping girls and young women to follow their passions and learn independence, along with the opportunity to learn practical skills for the outdoors since 1928.

The project was completed over two terms, with the help of sponsors such as Resene, Bunnings Botany and PSP Ltd in East Tamaki.

The mural is made up of 72 panels that collate and seam into an image of an apple tree, making for an eye-catching addition to the east Auckland landscape.
