Upcoming Work Day 31st. October

Greetings everyone.
Our 1st summer work day is scheduled for Sat 31st October 2015.
As usual we will meet in the carpark at 9.00am for Health & Safety talk and be directed to the allocated worksite.
Our tasks,  weather permitting, will be a general tidy up along the Ynys Fraser walkway, weedeating, spraying of blackberry growth and some mowing. Bring gardening tools, weedeaters, loppers, spray packs for those who are certified, gloves, hat, drink and bring your own lunch.If the weather on the day is inclement a decision will be made on the morning for either a cancellation or postponement.

Reserve Management Survey
An open day was held recently at the Springs with Ngati Rangiwewehi,Doc, EBOP, Fish&Game, TeArawa Lakes Trust & Rotorua Lakes Council, in attendance to promote awareness of the Springs and to get feedback on its future activities.
This was your opportunity to have your say on the future Reserve Management Plan, but if you were unable to go along that morning then you can still go onto the HSIS website www.hamurana-springs.co.nz and click onto the link to the survey form, complete and then submit to the Te Tahuhu o Tawakeimoa Trust. We understand it was a successful morning. Unfortunately HSIS was unable to attend due to a bereavement, but a table was set aside for our brochures. HSIS wishes to thank both Ngati Rangiwewehi and DOC for their support to our society.

We also wish to thank those Society members who turned out en-masse to support one of our own – in the passing of Sally French’s husband Rob - it is great to see this support within our organisation.
Don’t forget that we will only be doing four working days from now to April 2016 so come along and join in with those stalwart members who work as a team on the day.
And finally we still have our book Hamurana Springs – The Ancient Waters available through the two Paper Plus stores and McLeods in town, or directly through Jerry
