Greetings to you all.
The community planting day is all go for this Saturday 16th July 2016, just turn up.
If you are still available to attend the community planting this Saturday 16th July 2016 it will be great to see you there.
The plants are still healthy. All the holes are dug and the plants will be laid out so it will just be a matter of planting the tree and ensuring it is firmly in the ground. The forecast predicts a fine day. We will be on site from 8.30 am to 3.30 pm.
Meeting point is at the Whangawehi Bridge car park – just turn up.
Directions from Opoutama – Once you have arrived in Opoutama just follow the red arrows to Whangawehi Bridge. In Opoutama the first turn is right, over the railway crossing onto Ormond Drive, stay on this road which then becomes East Coast Road which will take you to the Whangawehi Bridge car park. Personnel will be there to direct you from there. It is not safe to drive vehicles down the hill to the actual planting site, so we will have transport down the hill or you may prefer to walk down the old road (about 10 minutes).
Late Arrivals – there is a plan for you too.
FeeI free to arrive and leave when it suits, if you arrive after we have left the Whangawehi Bridge Car Park, there will be arrows to direct you to Pongaroa Station, first turn on the right over the Whangawehi bridge, just continue to follow the arrows. When you arrive at the last gate where cars are not permitted to enter for safety reasons, you may have to walk to the site (approx 10 minutes down hill). Again it will be great to see you there.
Remember to bring appropriate clothing, footwear and your lunch, drinks and a trowl if you have one. Gloves are a good idea also.
Thank you all for your support. Take care and have a safe journey.
