Wednesday, 26th September 2018. Public Discussion on keeping vehicles and dogs out of Waipu Wildlife Refuge and dunes.
7.30 pm. St Peters Church, 10 Nova Scotia Drive, Waipu
Following the Waipu Residents and Ratepayers Association AGM will be a discussion on solving the problems of vehicles on beaches, sand dunes and the wildlife refuge.
Their local Councillors are likely to be there so support from a broad section of the community would be helpful for as many people as possible to turn up and enter this discussion.
The focus will be on the north side of Waipu river mouth as the southern side is well managed.
David Lourie will provide a power point presentation based on photos and an explanation of his perspective on the current situation. If anyone would like to put together a short presentation to share your knowledge of species, habitat, or concerns. There will be a projector you can use but we will need a couple of days notice to make sure the projector is compatible will your device.
Please forward this notice to whoever you think may be interested in attending.

Tuesdays, - Boomerang Bag workshop, Whangarei.

To sew reusable bags to distribute, in conjunction with Plastic Bag Free Northland, to the Whangarei Grower's Market, the Regent Countdown Supermarket Project and Bin Inn Kamo, as supply allows. The bags will not necessarily have to be returned - the main point is that they are used.
They have some machines and equipment ready to go, plus a supply of fabric. It doesn't matter if people can't sew - there is cutting/ ironing/ assembling. They invite anyone to pop in or stay the whole time, or they will provide material to sew from home. A Boomerang Bags Whangarei Facebook page will be running soon.

A multiple workshop area for the pursuit of an array of pastimes and projects, but also is a “Work in Progress” in its own right. The W.M.S. has set itself a target for restoring the interior of the old station (badly deteriorated) with the guidance of an architect employed by the Shed and the National Historic Places Trust.
