Chances to catch up with locals and get involved in Tamahere activities are plentiful in coming days.
On Sunday, March 2, Tamahere Gully Care is offering two options – seed collecting or potting.
Opening night for indoor bowls gets underway at the Tamahere Community Centre at 7.30pm on Monday, March 3, the same time in another part of the centre that the Tamahere Community Committee has its monthly meeting.
Public attendance is welcomed at committee meetings.
Seed collecting or potting
People who would like to go seed collecting with Tamahere Gully Care are invited to meet at the car park at the Pukemokemoke Bush Reserve, Tauhei Road, Gordonton at 1.30pm on Sunday.
There should be a variety of seed ripe for collection at this time of year so take along some plastic bags and wear suitable footwear. Wayne Bennett, representing Ecosourced Waikato, will lead a walk through the reserve to collect the seed.
The group has permission to collect from the reserve and, says organiser Jan Simmons, “hopefully we can turn the seed into plants at the Tamahere community nursery.”
Meanwhile, back at the nursery, there will be plenty of seedlings from seed collected in 2013 ready and waiting to be potted on; so for those who prefer potting go along to the Devine Rd nursery and help grow them into bigger plants. Start time is 1.30pm at the nursery. New volunteers are always welcome.
Opening night for Indoor bowls
The indoor bowling season gets underway again at the Tamahere Community Centre on Monday, March 3.
This is a fun game for all ages so if you are thinking that you would like to give it a go, go along to the main hall by 7.20pm for a 7.30pm start. Games finish most nights at 9.30pm.
