Appreciation from Motorists

We’ve received some lovely positive feedback from truck drivers and other motorists who were stranded in Pukerua Bay last week due to the accident and spill clean-up, thanking locals for their time, care and refreshments. We’d like to pass on their appreciation, and add ours as well, to all those residents of Pukerua Bay who helped out on the day!

“You guys rock, thanks for the food drink and your generous donations of time and chat talking to my fellow drivers. What you have done as a community far outweighs all expectations.”
— Mark Salisbury

“From all the truckies that were stranded yesterday, a huge thanks to the residents that came out to provide water and food. Community resilience at its best.”
— Axel Alexander

From us here in Pukerua Bay, you’re welcome!  🙂

We’ve also had an offer from Mainfreight to contribute something for the upcoming AGM in appreciation. Thanks again to all involved; pop along, and we’ll see you there!

Regional Water Quality presentation: Te Awarua-o-Porirua Whaitua committee

Te Awarua-o-Porirua Whaitua committee members will present what they have been doing to enable sound decisions around improving water quality in our streams and harbour.

Tuesday 16 October, 7pm (event, ical)
Mungavin Hall, 27 Mungavin Ave, Ranui Heights, Porirua  (map)

The Ministry for the Environment’s National Policy Statement for freshwater management requires regional councils to set limits and meet national bottom lines for water quality and quantity. The Greater Wellington Regional Council selected Whaitua Committees as the advisory bodies, and community-led collaboration as the method for developing these policies.
