Ani Nock, sporting legend of Nawton!
Ani Nock is a Nawton local hard and one of Hamilton City Council’s Community Advisors, when she’s not working in partnership with the community and other key stakeholders and organisations /agencies to facilitate and promote social wellbeing for Hamilton’s communities, she’s helping run the Waikato Touch Association. “I love the Nawton community” says Ani as she talks about her sporting achievements. She is very humble and in the world cup for woman’s touch, she inspires many. Surprisingly she isn’t most proud of her own personal success, but of the touch club she has been running for 10 years. “I’m most proud of my children though. Encouraging them to learn how to play sport, and enjoy it.” Ani says, enjoyment is the critical part of any sport. “As soon as it
becomes work, it instantly gets harder to do.” Her advice for teenagers balancing an academic and sporting life style is “to keep sport as something you enjoy and to keep academics as something you complete.” Ani also said “If you have support from your family or friends. It makes life easier.” While she’s not raising kids, repping touch or refereeing, Ani is a full time Community Advisor for Hamilton City Council. The advisors lead and facilitate projects and programmes in partnership with key groups to complete objectives across the City to the community and Hamilton. Community Advisors have local community responsibilities too including being assigned to establish and co-ordinate welfare functions in an emergency situation.
We’re thankful to have this local legend still around, kia ora Ani!
Local kindy’s vision coming to life! St Andrews Kindergarten will be painting Waikato beautiful after winning Keep New Zealand Beautiful’s annual Wall Worthy competition. In its 6th year, the Wall Worthy competition celebrates our communities, local legends and unheard stories in a way that will visually improve the environment. KNZB asked schools to submit what makes their town or school unique and illustrate how they would tell
their story through a painted mural. KNZB CEO, Heather Saunderson, says Wall Worthy is a nationwide behavioural change campaign aimed at the elimination and prevention of graffiti vandalism from a community based approach. “There tends to be a reduction in tagging when urban murals, reflective of the local community, are used to replace graffiti vandalised walls”says Saunderson.
