Hello Neighbours,

Welcome to the November Greenhithe Community Newsletter. Judging by the smiles on everyone’s faces last week, those few glorious summer days really did raise everyone’s spirits. Wet and windy again this week but hang on, we are nearly there! Kunzea Place and others pooled their fireworks on November 5.  Christmas decorations in the shops remind us that the time to celebrate. Christmas is getting closer and we start to think about gifts and gatherings.

Neighbourhood Support Update

The Police Crime Maps for Greenhithe are shown below. Don’t forget the numbers to report a crime: 111 for happening now; 105 for a crime already done, and Crime Stoppers 0800 555 111 with details of crimes or suspicious behaviour. It’s about neighbours helping neighbours.

December the 15th is going to be party time in at least 4 Greenhithe streets having Street BBQs. A reminder that $50 Simply Fresh Vouchers are available on a “first come first served” basis. Street Contacts please let me know when you have set a date and we will make a plan to get a voucher to you.

Street Contacts have been advised of the Emergency Response Presentation on Dec 1 to be given at the next Mix and Mingle. Thank you to those who have responded. If you live on a street without a current street leader and would like to attend, please contact me for details. There are currently 12 streets in Greenhithe without Street Contacts which means those streets are even more vulnerable in the event of an emergency. Let me know if you would like to sign up.

International Friends has two events coming up – A Nature Walk will be led by our Eco expert Richard Chambers on Tuesday, November 19th.  Then on November 26th an Emergency Response presentation is planned with a Mandarin Translator.   Please join us for either of these events or just for a cuppa and a chat.

We were blessed with lovely weather for the Greenhithe Spring Carnival this year. It was great to see families enjoying the first summer picnic in the park. 3 local youth groups Greenhithe Youth Collective, Collins Youth and Tauhinu Scouts used the event to raise funds for their upcoming programmes. They worked hard on carnival games, candy floss, face painting and bouncy castle supervision.  The flowers donated by Syd Hansen for the flower table were exceptionally beautiful this year!
