Fishing contests are the latest community projects in the Far North to get financial support from Te Hiku Community Board.

The board is giving out $21,442 in grants.

The Captain Morgan Snapper Bonanza received $10,000 to fund a surf rescue operation at the popular surfcasting contest at Ninety Mile Beach from February 26 to March 2.

The grant takes the total to $20,000 that the Far North District Council has committed to the contest next year.

The board also gave $3650 to the Mangonui Fire Brigade to hire portable toilets and marquees for the Doubtless Bay Fishing Contest on January 26-27.

Other groups to get grants:

● The Far North Avocado Trust received $4400 for its Christmas carnival

● The Houhora Bowling Club received $1685 towards a bowling green mower

● The Tokerau Beach-Whatuwhiwhi Residents and Ratepayers Association received $1,307 to upgrade a public garden welcoming visitors to Karikari Peninsula and $400 towards a Christmas dinner for senior citizens.
