The year is fast drawing to a close. right now the gardens are full of colour as the rain has kept things growing nicely. Soon, the Holiday Season will be with us and the LCRA committee wishes you all the very best for the holiday season.
Our Neighbourhood Week Picnic has been rescheduled for Feb 18th from 4pm – 6pm. We have booked Adam Allsorts the clown to entertain us, with other entertainment as can be arranged. There will be a BBQ with sausages available free but you are wecome to bring your picnic rugs and other food to enjoy our neighbours and our wonderful area.
The LCRA AGM will be held on Feb 13th from 7-30pm at Hohepa in Barrington St. This is your chance to participate in local grass roots activity, meet our elected officials and hear the Principal of Cashmere High School, Mr Mark Wilson update us on the redevelopment of the school. It will be a very interesting and informative evening. You are also very welcome to join our committee as all members are up for re-election.
This year has been a year of consolidation for LCRA.We initiated community projects and we were mostly successful. Rose St now has its yellow lines and further improvements are under consideration. The Cashmere View Playground received upgraded planting but we are not finished with the things we would like to see there: bench seats by the play area and a picnic table. We can use our community links to help build and install these. We would like to increase some of the plantings and have already planted six kowhai seedlings.
We have forged links with other local residents’ groups and have worked with them in improving matters in our area eg: Opawaho/Heathcote river cleanup; SCERT emergency planning for Somerfield & Lower Cashmere; traffic issues as well as Rose St including Cashmere Road & Barrington St turn from the Mall as well as the Quarrymans’ Cycle Trail..

Have a safe and enjoyable summer holiday and all the best to everyone for 2107.
