Last 2011 Workday

The Society’s keen volunteers met at the Springs for the last work day of the year, last Sat. Dec. 3rd. 2011. While the weather was far from ideal, there was a fantastic turnout of willing helpers, who boxed on in the rain.

Some helped install 2 beautiful tables, crafted from the Redwood timber allocated to the Society, others went to work on a general clean up of the main track which looked just great, a Pohutukawa donated as part of the Traveller’s Trees scheme was planted up by the main spring.

And finally the time was used to do a complete check of the Predator Traps, with 2 more rats in varying degrees of decay(!) being collected.

An even larger group then turned up for the year end lunch at the Douglas’s. As everyone brought a plate to go with the Ham, there was a huge and delicious array of food, a feast even, followed by an amazing range of succulent desserts. Add to that the great Mulled Wine prepared by our resident expert Clarice, plus the BYO drinks, and a good time was had by all.
It was an ideal opportunity to take a group photo as well.
The President said some words of thanks to all the volunteers, who have put in another year of hard work in the Reserve.
