John has been volunteering on Mondays and Thursdays with Parklands since 2016.
Why are you involved with Parklands?
I wanted to do something outdoors - I hate being indoors all day. I really like the people who work here. It's all casual and everyone is easy to get on with.
What do you bring to Parklands?
I'm pretty good with mechanical stuff. I make things using the machinery here, like putting together stay units for the fencing we do.
What is your most memorable experience with Parklands?
Working on the Koetong Trestle Bridge. It looked great once it was finished and I helped put the mesh on the rails.
