FIXING THE EROSION OF EMBARKMENT NEXT TO THE WHAREKAI

The BOPRC and others have assessed the erosion of the river bank next to the wharekai and have reported that they will look at funding a project to fix the issue.  There will be future planting along the river bank so that the erosion doesn’t continue to threaten the location of the wharekai in time to come.  If you are interested in helping out, please contact one of the marae committee members.  Carol Whare, or Punohu McCausland.
