Earlier this year, we received an email from the Mount Maunganui Lifeguard Service advising us of their surf club being rebuilt. After a quick discussion, SEA Containers NZ wanted to jump on board with the rebuild by supplying eight 20FT and 40FT containers. The demolishment of the surf club started in early April, which meant that there was a need for shipping containers to store the equipment that helps to keep swimmers safe on the beaches in Mount Maunganui. The shipping containers are now stored all over Mount Maunganui with a couple of the containers located beside the new state-of-the-art rescue centre and the Mount Maunganui camping ground.
Another fantastic community project that SEA Containers have been behind this year is the Bayfair Community Gardens. The Bayfair Community Gardens supports the Tauranga Community Foodbank by supplying fresh fruit and vegetables. SEA Containers supplied a shipping container that is being used for storage and as an office space.
