Gully Open Day
Meet at Footbridge accessible from 64 St James Drive or 2 Grenache Pl off Coleraine Dr.
Organised by Rex Bushell, a local resident who is keen to form a community group to undertake the restoration of Mangaiti Park gully area. The project is to help restore the gully back to the native flora (plants) and fauna (animals) .

Rex is inviting anyone that maybe interested to come along to an “Open Day” to look over the area and see what is involved. Bring your gumboots for tours of the area from 12 to 1pm, with some experts in gully restoration available to discuss gully restoration in smaller groups from 1pm.

If the day is wet it will be postponed to the following Saturday, 25th September. Check for a posting on Rex’s blog if in doubt http://gullyrestoration.blogspot.com/

If you would like to be kept up to date on what is happening register your email address (Name, phone number and street address would be oppositional) on Rex Bushell’s email gullyrestoration@gmail.com to receive news letters in the form of a blog link.

This is a great way to meet other people in your local community.

If you have any queries prior to or on the day, please do not hesitate to contact Rex Bushell through his blog site, email or phone me on 8386501 or 021 2862066.

Yours faithfully
