FOMI wins heritage & environment category of Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards 2017 – Porirua

Award certificate for Porirua section of Wellington Airport Community Awards, 2017

27 July 2017

We were delighted to win the Heritage and Environment category award last night at the Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards for Porirua event.

It’s a major endorsement of everything our volunteers have done over the years. We recognise the support and direction provided by our partners on Mana Island – DOC and Ngati Toa.

FOMI and the other winning community groups from Porirua will join winners from around the region for the Regional Award finals in late October. Here is the video screened at the finals event. 

About the awards

Every year, Wellington International Airport, Wellington Community Trust, and the five local councils come together to recognise the work carried out by community groups in the wider Wellington region. The focus of the awards is to celebrate volunteers for their valuable contribution to society.
