Congratulations to Rosalie for winning the Apple Hetlina that was on raffle at the Festival of Cultures! This is a heritage apple variety that can be traced back 700 years to Czechoslowakia. Research indicates that it is a top performer for health benefits, right up there with Apple Monty's Surprise.

Big thanks also to PNCC for the water tank to raffle. A winner and two alternates were drawn at the Festival, and PNCC will be making the necessary contacts.

I was just on the PNCC web site and noticed this article, and I thought it would be topical for our network. One of the aspects that interests me is how the GIS-rationalised route also would minimise driving & idling time for the recyling trucks. --Sharon

Celebrate World Wetland Day and farewell the birds at the Manawatu Estuary, this Sunday, February 1st!

This is also the 10th anniversary of the Manawatu Estuary being accepted as a Ramsar Site! Come along to Foxton Beach to see what birds are there in their breeding plumage. The Ornithological Society of NZ will have their telescopes to give everyone a close up view of several different species of birds. Hear about the ecological features which make the estuary so special.

Meet by the tall pine trees at the Holben Reserve near the Foxton Beach Motor Camp at 10.30am.

You are also invited to bring your picnic lunch and to have an afternoon walk around the estuary with MET members for a beach clean-up around the dunes of the estuary. If you are in doubt about the weather, or have any other queries, contact Joan Leckie, telephone 06 3681277.

Stop requesting ATM receipts. Why destroy trees? Instead, check your balance on screen, write down that number and your withdrawal amount.
