FROM ALLAN - Queens Birthday weekend will be an extra working bee. There are a lot of jobs still to do both inside and outside and tidying up around the Bach as well. We now have two first aid kits. One is a large OSH standard kit and the other a smaller 'travelling kit'. If you use anything from them please let Allan now so that replacements can be got. Don't forget the Bach is open to the public on the Sunday after the working bee.
Awards: The Trust has been nominated in two awards.
We nominated ourselves for the E-awards from the Auckland
Regional Council for the clean up we undertook in February
2002. Winners are announced on June 5th.
The ARC nominated us for a Green Ribbon Award from the Ministry for the Environment, in the category of raising awareness of environmental issues. Finalists are announced in late May with the winners presentation also on June the 5th but in Wellington.
Fund applications: We have applied to the ARC EIF fund for money towards an upgrade of our website. We should here by the end of June whether we have been successful. Your Trustees have also been working very hard on an application for a sponsor. We will know about this by early June.
AGM - Tentatively set for 17th July.
Previous meeting: We would like to thank our visitors from the ARC, Antoine and Brent for talking to us about the role of the ARC, the new rating scenario and Rangitoto. We all went home with some lovely posters and a good deal to think about.
