Manukau East Community Networking Meeting

Lindsay Upton from Manukau East Council of Social Services (MECOSS)

At a recent MECOSS Community Networking Meeting, sprightly Brenda Loader (96), spoke about her plans to formally celebrate the 100 year anniversary of Howick's Horticultural Society in 2023 - the same year Brenda also turns100!
Because she feels she's not getting any younger, Brenda is putting a call out to those interested in getting involved with the planning of this special occasion, to come forward and join the organising committee.
Please contact MECOSS, if you're available to assist.
