Community Creek Consultation
Last month, we gathered as a small group as part of our Community Creek Consultation. We discussed the visions we have and how we can connect with Lindsay Creek Creek in the future. We are currently collating the information from the preliminary creek survey and community consultation and feed this into a River Regeneration Plan. A huge thank you to everyone who filled in the Preliminary Creek Consultation Survey and came along to the Community Creek Consultation evening.
Chingford Park has been a buzz with Working Bees
Walking into the Riparian Rhapsody in Chingford Park felt a bit like walking into a grassy thicket in February after a break over summer. The weeds had really relished the opportunity to grow as much as they could in our absence. A volunteer leader and a keen group of students from Carrington College as part of their O’week activities were up to the task of giving the site a bit of a “haircut”. The students wielded their shears and forks to manage the mammoth task of releasing previous plantings as well as removing blackberry, thistles and convolvulus. We are also working towards a planting day in Autumn, so it is great to have the site preparation underway! Many thanks to our wonderful volunteer leaders and the Carrington College crew!

Chingford Park Community Engagement Container
A shipping container will be finding a new home at Chingford Park this March. The container will act as a community engagement hub and storage spot for the predator trapping projects we are facilitating in collaboration with Predator Free Dunedin’s City Sanctuary Project. If you have any queries or concerns, please contact us on email@example.com. The container will be in place from Thursday the 3rd March until Thursday 30th June 2022. Watch this space for upcoming activities!
