Better Burning Competition

Better Burning Competition

Updated 19 October 2018 10:23am

This year we will have a better burning stand at the Wariarapa A&P Show.

We’ll be showcasing some types of wood to avoid when building your wood pile over Summer, and talking about the best way to stack and store your wood.

We’ll also be holding an amazing competition.

How to enter

The competition is exclusive to attendees of the show, and there will be an entry form available on the stand. Just answer one simple question on how home fires affect our air quality – the answer can be found on the better burning pages of our website – and pop it in the box to be in with a chance of winning.
