Papamoa Skyline no longer punctuated by radio mast — 25.05.2013
After 30 to 40’s years of service the Radio Rhema mast no longer stands as past of the Papamoa sky line. Many residents turned out this morning to watch the mast being removed to make way for the further development of the Freedom (Semi Retirement) Village. This is an historic milestone for the Golden Sands development and the Papamoa area. A few keen fisherman will miss the mast as it was used as point of navigation. The neighbours watching were impressed by the skill of the helicopter pilot and removal crew as the winds did pick up a far bit in the middle of the morning. The mast removal took approximately four hours to complete.
