Monster wasp nest

The Team from Wasp Wipeout

Well, after a (relatively) quiet couple of summers, the vespula wasps have come back big time in some locations! Auckland and the Waikato are reporting big numbers and you may have seen this story about the monster nest found just outside of Nelson. We're continuing our efforts to control the wasps through the Wasp Wipeout project, but did you know you can help as well? For information on how to help or DIY click here: bit.ly... You can also donate to the project here: givealittle.co.nz...

Seeking GrandFriends in the Taranaki Region - is this you?

Jo Hayes from GrandFriends NZ - Taranaki Region

We are looking for awesome individuals or couples who would like to support a local family and act as a "GrandFriend". We have a waiting list of families in your area who would love nothing more than to connect with you.

GrandFriends is a little charity that combats big issues like isolation and loneliness.

We are the bridge that brings kiwis together from across the generations. By connecting families with GrandFriends, we provide a long lasting “people” solution to loneliness.

Using our years of experience we match like-minded GrandFriends, extending their support networks, so they can enjoy the special moments, share the load - all the while combating loneliness.

You are welcome to apply as an individual - or if you wish to apply with your partner (husband/wife/significant other) as something that you can volunteer with together - that is also very much welcome and encouraged.

To get involved please click the link below to join us today.
