In an exciting recent development, on the 25th of November, the Tira Kawana / Auckland Council governing body passed a resolution to accept the Kaipātiki Local Board's recommendation that the ownership of the buildings at Ross Reserve, Glenfield (the disused Glenfield Bowling Club) be transferred to Pest Free Kaipātiki. This new facility will be able to accommodate all PFK staff under one roof, have space for running training and local reserve group meetings on site, room for our community Tool Library while also enabling us to invite other community groups to also use this space.
There is a lot to be done . . .
And we are focused on making sure resource is not taken away from the incredibly important work our team already do supporting volunteer conservation efforts. We already have a team of volunteer Project Managers and a volunteer Fundraising Coordinator in place but we can always do with more help!
