Mr Johnston said the cost to install about 200 blue plastic
Carisbrook seats on the terraces, in the front of the
changing room, was about $9000.
The community board money was ''fantastic'' and would ensure
the project would proceed.
A view overlooking Sunnyvale Park could be seen from the
seats, he said.
''The plan is to concrete them in there so people can sit and
The working party was contacting businesses in the district
to provide services to help install the seats, such as
concreting and excavation work.
Carisbrook Rotary Project committee member Lindsay Thorburn
said Rotary had given the seats to the working party.
The seats were salvaged from the terraces below the
scoreboard at Carisbrook and were the final items from the
project, Mr Thorburn said.
