- We are very grateful to be named one of the recipients of the Omokoroa Coastal Challenge. Please go and sign up and join the run / walk on the 20th October. I have. https://runrunrun.co.nz/
- We have now reached $15387.00 of the estimated $25000.00 needed to complete the build
- We are proposing a build date of 26th-28th of October with some minor works happening the weekend before and after.
- We have now formed a committee but are still looking for ongoing volunteers for the gardens day to day running Please contact Wendy Tankard if you are interested. email@example.com
- Update plans for the garden below
- We aim to provide a selection of planter beds that the general public can come and harvest from for free. Fresh, in season, vegetables; herbs and fruit will be there for anyone who needs it.
- We aim to provide a set number of planter beds for the school to utilise for education with the “garden to table” scheme. More information can be found here. http://www.gardentotable.org.nz . Due to the current work load of teachers; the new buildings being built and other financial commitments the school will look to take on the Garden to table curriculum in either late 2020 or early 2021.
- We are planning on leasing out a number of the planter beds to the local community to encourage people to come together and support each other and provide a safe place for people to meet and build a sense of community. The rental on these beds will be nominal (approx. $15 / month). It is to ensure there is some buy in from the users and to provide a small income for maintenance and the purchase of consumables.
- There will also be planter beds set aside for the community food bank to provide them with fresh, in season vegetables for those that need it in our community.
- The Good Neighbour Trust have agreed to help us out with the build and to provide support through mentors.
- Supergans of Kati Kati have contacted us and would love to be involved too. Great news! https://www.supergranswbop.org.nz/

I would really appreciate it if you could promote our give a little page. You are probably aware of the work being done to reopen he Ruamoana walkway. As a late addition to the walkway project, our 3 households at 23-25 Ruamoana Place have agreed to including these steps with the other repairs to reopen the walkway. However we feel others may want to contribute to the steps as well.
We have set up a ‘give a little’ page. We now have the first 3 donations to verify we exist and therefore open the page and start the ball rolling. The link to his page is on the attached flyer https://givealittle.co.
Did try to upload this myself but it only allowed images no pdfs. Have attached it as a word file as well if that helps.
Thanks heaps and if you need anything else please let me know.

(Ed. Excerpt from page)
“As the project was coming in slightly under the $600,000 budget, Peter approached us to include the replacement of the beach access steps between 26 and 27 Ruamoana Place in the project. These steps were originally put in by Ruamoana Place residents but were old and decaying. By including them, this time the Council pays half and there is no issue with permission and permits. These steps are now complete and look fantastic and are far less scary than the previous ones.
The households at 23 – 25 Ruamoana Place are happy to underwrite this communal asset but feel these steps are an opportunity for others who use the beach and the walkway to also feel they have contributed to this beautiful area and pay a share of the now subsidised cost.
This ‘give a little’ page has been set up to help fund the neighbourhood $8,000 share of these steps. Do you enjoy the use of these stairs and this walkway? Your contribution – a little or a lot – will be much appreciated.
Any proceeds from this give a little page will be used to reimburse the three households equally only for their underwriting of this part of the overall project. Peter Clark’s estimate of the cost states ‘The quote for just over $16k includes for the removal of the existing steps, new foundation posts, and total replacement of the existing [steps] to approximate its current dimensions.’”
The Centre, the little community shop in Hamurana Rd, could be interested in accepting some of your unsold goods. We are looking for more crockery, saucepans, casserole dishes and most other kitchenware. Please don’t be offended if we can’t take everything; our premises are very small. All profits are donated to local groups..
