RESIDENTS from Bupa Mary Shapley Care Home have made sure their gumboots stand out on the White Pine Bush Road gumboot fence in Awakeri.

They took a van trip out to the tourist attraction and attached their gumboots, which they had painted themselves with bright colours during their activities time recently.

Care home manager Shelly Moloney says the residents got a real kick out of seeing their brightly coloured gumboots on the fence.

“They got to sign their gumboot crafts before we attached them and they loved it. Their gumboots definitely stood out from the rest.”
