‘Horrible’ sight of naked man spurs boy’s protest

The Dominion Post 25 October 2008

A 10-year-old Kapiti Coast boy has launched a petition against nudity on local family beaches. Kena Kena School pupil Michael Hayward presented his 144-signature petition to Kapiti Coast District Council’s regulatory and management committee after a “horrible” sighting of a man sunbathing naked on Paraparaumu Beach. The petition opposed a proposed council bylaw under which nudity would be allowed but if nudists’ behaviour was deemed offensive it would be dealt with by the police.
