Hello Neighbours and welcome to the August Greenhithe News,

ADDENDUM – Bother we are back into Level 3 Lockdown so all of the below events may change… meanwhile if you need a reminder about life in Level 3, click here.

This month is National Neighbourhood Support Random Acts of Kindness month. We are reminded that being kind does not have to cost anything. Even small things like smiles, friendly compliments, flowers from the garden or shared cookies, can make a difference to someone’s day. If you are aware of neighbours doing it tough please email me the details and I will be happy to deliver a food voucher, courtesy of Neighbourhood Support.

If you have some spare time and would like to learn new things, meet people and make a positive difference here are some weekly local community groups and events to consider.

At No.12 Greenhithe Road here are the weekly events when we are not in lockdown. Check out the Greenhithe Residents Association for use of the Village Hall.

The Upper Harbour Political Debate is in the Greenhithe Village Hall on August 23. The topic is business. Meet your local candidates and hear what they have to say.

What will the general election mean for Upper Harbour? Meet with our local candidates on August 6 (transport at Hobsonville Point), August 23 (business, Greenhithe Village Hall) September 1 (education at Meadowood) and September 6 (environment at Bayview).

International Friends is hosting the Chinese Education Conservation Trust on August 25 at 12 Greenhithe Road. There will be reserve restoration, tai chi and morning tea.

The Spring Egg Hunt is on September 12. Enjoy a good old-fashioned Easter egg hunt run by Shore Grace church in Collins park from 2pm.

The Lucas Creek Clean Up is on September 13. Meet at the Greenhithe wharf at 10am and enjoy a community BBQ afterwards.  Thank you, Sustainable Coastlines, for helping us care for our coastline.

If your street is listed above, please will you consider being the Contact Person.   The task is NOT difficult or overly demanding – it is mainly about knowing your neighbours, updating the street lists with any changes and having a get-together once a year. This can be as easy as a street BBQ in the summer. Email me if you are willing to be a Street Contact or if you have any questions.

Here is the latest Greenhithe Youth Collective News.

Here is the local Crime Map for the past month and this is what our community constable has to say.

Greenhithe Ecology Network

A whopping 550 hours of volunteer environmental care went into Greenhithe during June and July, and that is only the hours we know about. Thank you to all you amazing people who reduce pest plants and animals from your back yards and local reserves and coastlines. The baby birds will be hatching soon, and their chances of survival are greatly enhanced. Check out the tuis amongst the blossoms in Almond Grove!

There are several groups now working to restore our local reserves and control pests. Dedicated volunteers are doing fantastic environmental work. There have been several local bush rescues recently and more events are coming up. Find out more in the August Greenhithe Ecology News.

Keep on being a kind, caring community. Stay safe, and warm.
