Ping Pong

Just sounding out who’d be interested in starting a table tennis evening, say once a week in the Hall or other suitable venue. A lot cleaner than walking, hopefully less sweaty than tennis and less injury prone than those funny games involving running up and down outside and grunting at each other with big balls. Good for your cognitive whatsits too according to recent studies by study people. Steve Rowsell is offering one table and hopefully we could source some more… RSVP mike@hiko.co.nz (no commitment – just getting some numbers)

Heli Spraying Along Motorway Works

Dear Neighbour,

API will be Heli spraying 150 acres of regenerated Native Bush along the NX2 Designation Boundary starting next week, lasting  for 6-8 days. This work is very weather dependant and dates may change.

The operation will be targeting weeds; Pampas grass, Wooley nightshade, black berry and gorse and one area of wild ginger. This is an API Forest operation but they will be flying along and over the NX2 alignment during the spray works. The helicopter will be operating at low altitude and needs clear air space, please do not fly any drones during this time.

If you  have any queries please contact API directly.

A great chance make some donations if you’ve not done so!
