Frank Joyce – Thank YOU!

Opua Community Hall
A short time ago, we thanked Frank Joyce for all he had done over the last many many years in looking after our community hall.
A plaque has been placed on the wall in the hall to commemorate this.
He was Chairman of the hall committee from 1992 until 2018

and here are the photos I have left out last week – my apologies!
These photos are just wonderful, hence I’ve sent another email today

News Update May 2019

Greetings to all ratepayers and residents of Opua.

To let you all know what is happening here are a few items of interest.

Remember if you have any ideas on how we can improve our village, please come forward and tell us.

Remember most of these projects need financing so donations into our Trust account are very welcome as without them we cannot achieve these improvements.

Hopefully, you have noticed a new addition to Franklin Street lately. A local man (who wishes to remain nameless) donated the wonderful

Speed Indicator Device to the community to help make the school a safer place. Over the past year, members from LoveOpua have liaised with the FNDC and other agencies to find a suitable location and the correct permissions to install it.

Finally, everything came together, and members from LoveOpua installed it nearly a month ago. It is amazingly effective in slowing down the traffic, and hopefully, it will save numerous people from getting a speeding ticket.

take two… Working Bee

CUsersFrankPicturesClipArtBeehappyThis time! 

Team New Zealand are back on the water. And the Opua community is back with its working bee.

The weather looks to be fine this Saturday 10 June – perhaps just a few showers, but not enough to dampen the enthusiasm of the fantastic Opua community!

So the Working Bee at the Top O’ The Hill is back on. 9.00 – 11.00 am. Bring tools etc as per the earlier notice. Let’s give those weeds one hell of a hiding!!

But if anyone can help Vanessa with Morning Tea she would be very appreciative – ph. 4027650.

 And GO Team New Zealand!!

REMINDER

Don’t forget the Working Bee this Saturday 8 October, 9.00 – 11.00 am

We have organised a trailer of metal to fill the pot holes in the parking area.

lady-gardenOur main tasks will be to weed the gardens and to trim back the plants and the edges. So secateurs, weeding implements, spades, etc will be the main implements required. Containers for weeds will be helpful.

 

Vanessa will bring scones for morning tea but other help with food, and hot water and the makings for a cup of tea or coffee would be much appreciated. Phone Vanessa on 4027650.

A great chance to demonstrate the fantastic Opua Community spirit.

See you there.

Frank.
