Way to go! - We'd like to acknowledge the great example displayed by a boating family recently having fun with their black RIB and towing a biscuit. They were using a spotter to keep an eye on the kids out the back and were really cautious in approaching the wharf, looking out for others, including a number of swimmers in the water

Success - Major funding secured to start rebuild
A huge thank you to Otago Community Trust and Alexander McMillan Trust in supporting our community project - Stage 1 & 2 will be underway a.s.a.p - More info....
