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.

“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.’”
