Saturday 23 November

The Friends of A J Seeley Gully invite you to attend a ‘Working Bee’ on Saturday, 23 November 2013 commencing at 3.00pm.

Come along and see what an amazing gully Dr Seeley gifted to the city and help us continue the restoration project. It will also be a chance to celebrate the success of the ‘A J Seeley Gully Charity Auction’ held at the Waikato Home Show ‘Gully Xpo’ where the group raised $6300 towards the instalment of the ‘Koru’ stone seat walkway and bush boardwalk.

We will meet at the entrance to the reserve at the end of Armagh St.  You will need to bring gardening gloves, suitable footwear (gumboots are best!) and clothing for gardening. We will be removing pest plants and weeds around recent plantings.

Following the project, join us for a social get together with a BBQ in the park at 5.30pm; sausages and vegetarian burgers will be provided. Please bring your own drink and salads. If you can, please RSVP by Wednesday, 20 November for catering purposes.

If you would like receive further information about this project please contact the Parks and Opens Spaces customer service team by phoning 838 6622 or email; gerard.kelly@hcc.govt.nz

The success of the project to date would not have been possible without the support of a number of organisations working together and donations of artworks from local artists for the auction ; Wild Exposure Ltd , Waikato Home & Garden Show - Hannah and Associates Exhibitions Ltd , Acorn Building supplies, Green Footprint Ltd, The Greenspace, EcoArb Ltd , Bennett Contracting Volunteering Waikato volunteers, Ray White Real Estate staff volunteers, Ibis/Novatel Hotel staff volunteers and local residents from the ‘Seeley Gully Group’. Inspirit Gallery and Ray White Real Estate supported the auction with artworks by artists ; Kate Hill, Jane Galloway; Jenny Scown, Bruce Smith , Lisa Taylor Faith Tavernor and Bryce McQuillan.

Look forward to seeing you all there keen to help. Don’t forget “Many hands make light work!”.

Riverlea Environment Society working bee

Please come along to the last working bee for 2013. I think you'll all agree we're doing a fine job down there and it's looking great. Very satisfying. There could be some steep bits this time.
Meet at the Malcolm St end of the boardwalk at 1pm with gloves, sturdy shoes, spade and loppers or similar. Two hours, all done, good feelings.
