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.
Our 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.
The Spring has sprung, the grass has ris – I wonder where the birdies is.
Well, the weeds have also risen at the “Top O’ the Hill” – our well-used rest area which helps define the beauty of Opua. The plants and shrubs we planted are growing beautifully, but the weeds are now trying to assert their authority, so it is time to get stuck in and beautify the area for the coming Summer season
So this is advance notice of a Working Bee to be held –
Saturday 8 October,
9.00 – 11.00am.
We will be:
Pulling out the advancing weeds
Spraying around seats, sleepers, etc
Filling the pot holes in the parking area, (can anyone get hold of a trailer load of metal?)
Cleaning the rope.
And we will be enjoying the company of like-minded Opua residents.
There will be a reminder later but put this in your diary now.

Declaring war on The Taiwanese Cherry Tree. Saturday Morning,29th August, 8.30, meet at The Top of the Opua Hill, Depending on how many turn up with chainsaws will depend on how many areas we can attack Janet Bambus has already been working on the area of Scoresby Street in Opua, so this will be the first part, we will progress from there. Please bring hi-vis gear if you have it, loppers, chainsaws, empty spray bottles? I have containers of water to mix with the Glyphosate. Others may have something else they would prefer to put on the stumps, some trees may need to be drilled. Weather looks ok so hoping for a good turnout.
