Sunday December 3, 10.30 am – 12.30 pm

Come along to the Houghton Valley Community Hall and chat with friends, neighbours and other locals. It will be an informal celebration of our new hall roof and a nod to the end of the year / upcoming Christmas. Leone is making some yummy food, but you can bring some too, or just a bring a koha.

Update on Lifting the Creek

Our petition has closed now, we managed to get 237 signatures, which was pretty impressive! It wasn’t all locals by a long shot, so our beach and valley are appreciated by a lot of other people as well.

We had a pleasant ramble down the valley for our Creek Walk, exploring the various places that our catchment water makes it appearance, its way, and its disappearance down the valley. As most of us know, at times we had to revert to walking down the road due to swampy parts and steep places, though an intrepid few clambered down a gully formed by rainwater. We were distracted by the great afternoon tea at the playground and never made it as far as the beach.

Here is a link to the handout we made for the walk, in case you really wanted to come, but couldn’t make it.
