Thanks to all who attended our meeting last evening – we were delighted by the turnout on a cold night!
The talk by Gemma Tolich Allen was very stimulating and well received. We realised that the Central Interceptor will connect our Waititiko Meola communities with those in Manukau in a very real way when our surplus stormwater volumes are sent to Mangere wastewater treatment plant for processing and release into the Manukau Harbour.
The talks by David Ward, Nick Goldwater and Mac Mackintosh were also both interesting and appreciated.
Thanks to all the committee who worked hard to make it successful. We particularly welcome new member Mac to the committee. Mac announced a monthly working group on the second Saturday of each month at 10 am, starting with an Ahurangi cleanup. More info to follow.
A particularly special moment came when Roy Clements, our long time Patron accepted a life membership of STEPS presented by Pat Prescott. Pat thanked him for his long contribution to the landscape around Meola Creek and wider Auckland, as well as his personal support for STEPS.
