Fun-n-gala time! Are you keen to plant natives?

Visit our stall at the Pauatahanui School Lamb & Calf Day on Saturday 7 November and we will swap your weed with a lovely native plant. We will have specimens of pest animals that are threatening our native species and will provide trapping demonstrations. Loads of fun for the kids! We will have a catchment model at our stall to play with to learn about sediment, streams, gullies and wetlands.

Find out how you can improve the health of our waterways in the Pauatahanui area and inlet. Your efforts can boost biodiversity and reduce sediment levels in our streams through erosion control and planting. Staff will be available to offer advice and help find out if your property could get funding assistance. See you there.

Serving the community is a way of life for one man who has just been recognised for 44 years’ service to New Zealand’s longest serving voluntary organisation.
Squadron Leader Rob Foley has a little more bling to add to his shirt after receiving another long service award for his work within the New Zealand Cadet Forces (NZCF).
Now sporting four clasps to his original long service award, he started his relationship with NZCF as a cadet at No. 22 SQN in Upper Hutt. Eventually he became the unit’s commander.
The NZCF can trace its roots back to 1864 when the first unit was raised in Dunedin High School (now Otago Boys’ High School), making it the longest-running voluntary youth service organisation in New Zealand.
