It’s Maori Language Week and there are some great Te Reo resources.
Now is a good time to say ka pai to the Greenhithe Community Trust Board. This group of volunteers works hard behind the scenes to provide some great things here such as Neighbourhood Support, Greenhithe Youth Collective and Greenhithe Ecology Network. The funding was badly compromised for a few months because lockdown affected the granting agencies. But things are back on track and annual planning for 2021 is full steam ahead. If you would like to donate your time or funds to help a special project happen here, please be in touch.
Not long until the general elections now!
We are expecting a dry spring. Here are some great ideas on managing the water shortage. It is getting easier to install a tank.
Sadly, a number of local events have had to be postponed including the Spring Egg Hunt and Coastline Clean-up and will be enjoyed at a later date.
International Friends is still meeting on Tuesday mornings in groups of under 10. There is a weeding and planting event at the reserve at 12 Greenhithe Road on September 22nd from 9:30am. A Nature Walk is planned for September 29th, when we will learn about flora and fauna in Greenhithe. This walk will be well within senior capabilities, with the promise of morning tea and cake to follow! On October 6th, Alethia will lead us in Line Dancing from 10 to 11am in St Michael’s Hall. A fun way to exercise! Mah Jong and other board games will be available in the No.12 lounge, for the more sedentary, plus knitting for the hospitals.
Thank you to those generous people who have donated wool for hospital knitting; any donation of wool suitable for blankets and baby clothes will be gratefully received. Please don’t sit at home feeling lonely, come and join the friendly folk at No.12 on Tuesday mornings from 9.30am.
