New Plymouth District Mayor Peter Tennent is hoping to see another good crowd there from 11.45am this Wednesday.

"The locals have really taken James and Justin into their hearts so it would be great to have a sea of people at the beach again when the two of them unveil the plaque," says the Mayor.

"The boys will be arriving at the beach by waka and they'll have a chance to address the crowd as part of the ceremony.
