New General Manager for Taupō Airport

Darren Petry from Taupo District Council

Rhys Frearson has been appointed to the role of General Manager of Taupō Airport.

Prior to his appointment, Mr Frearson was Manager of Operations at Rotorua Airport. Mr Frearson began his aviation career as a member of a Rescue Fire crew, before studying for a Diploma in Aviation, progressing to Rescue Fire manager and then on to Operations Manager. He also enjoys time viewing the world from the pilot’s seat as often as possible.

Mr Frearson said he was looking forward to getting stuck into the new role, ensuring the airport met all civil aviation requirements, and acting as the point of contact for the community. “The Taupō district is a very dynamic place and I’m really excited to be here. It’s such an upbeat region and there is so much to do, I’m really looking forward to the challenges and opportunities we have for the airport here,” he said.

Head of economic development and business development John Ridd said Mr Frearson was taking up the role at an exciting time. “We have the bones of ‘the best little airport in New Zealand’ due to the fantastic work of previous managers, and Rhys comes to the role at a great time when we are primed for further growth both airside and landside. He brings the skills and experience which will take the airport to the next level,” he said.

Please give water to the birds and wildlife in your garden each day

Sharon Neighbourly Lead from Te Awamutu

With the very dry conditions we are all experiencing in parts of New Zealand with no end to the level 4 water restrictions in our sight, it is important to remember our wildlife we have in our gardens.
Please try to have water available to our wildlife. Its to the point that they are now having real problems

An idea to save water that may otherwise be wasted.. I know and read that many of you have been using grey water to water the garden.. and for the flushing of the toilet cistern .
When you run water for a shower there is water at the begining that isnt used as its cold. Consider collecting that water and put some aside for a container up high for birds or lower for our ground dwelling creatures
