Small Scale Community Initiatives Fund

The Small Scale Community Initiatives Fund (SSCIF) is funded through the biosecurity targeted rate and is designed to support volunteer community groups and individual landowners undertaking ecological restoration initiatives within the Waikato region. The principal purpose of the fund is to enable the purchase of materials, up to the value of $5,000, used in pest animal/plant pest control and/or for plants in ecological restoration projects.

One of our contacts has provided some tips for the application: If you have any monitoring data it would be good to include it to detail effectiveness, and also a map of your traps/bait lines is always appreciated. If you are working close to other landowners or groups, detail how you might be working with them to maximise the site work.

Facebook page for Living Streets Hamilton!

Living Streets Hamilton now has a Facebook page which you can find at https://www.facebook.com/LivingStreetsHamilton

Check out the page for HCC candidate views on pedestrian matters. The aim right now is to give council and mayoral candidates a chance to talk about their views on the future of walking in Hamilton, so they've asked them three very simple questions:

  1. What is your opinion on pedestrian facilities in Hamilton?
  2. What, if anything, would you like to see changed?
  3. If you would like to see change, how would you see it being achieved?

Living Streets Hamilton already have responses from four candidates and are of course hoping for many more and lots of good conversations over the next few weeks as the election campaigns get into gear.

So, please go and have a look, and if you find it interesting, 'Like' the page to spread it further through the community.
