A call to everyone who is interested in the welfare and maintenance of Dacre Cottage and the surrounding area, to join the Dacre Cottage Management Committee from 8.30 -11.30 on the first Sunday of each month for an hour or so of contribution followed by a mandatory cuppa and a yarn.
Folk are invited to rendezvous at the carpark on Ara Weti Rd (just before the gates to the Weiti subdivision) for the 500m walk to the Cottage.
With thanks from the DCMC

LONG BAY, OKURA AND THE MARINE RESERVE IS UNDER THREAT FROM FURTHER INCREASED, INTENSIVE LAND DEVELOPMENT. YOUR HELP IS URGENTLY REQUIRED.
The Long Bay Okura Great Park Society is a community group set up over 15 years ago to preserve the parks, coastline and marine reserve in this area.
After two major Environmental Court cases costing $500,000, the society sought and obtained binding rulings that limited the impact of development along the Long Bay-Okura coastline.
This helped protect our unique coastline and marine reserve.
This is now under threat..........................
