Update on the next build

Finally all of the paper work has been submitted and it looks like we will be able to get started with our next house in the new year. It is expected that building will begin mid-February 2008 with the flooring/piles etc going down in January in preparation for the main build.

We will also be having a Christmas get together at some stage... So watch this space for more updates.

Working bee Saturday 29th September

Hi all

Spring has sprung!!! It's time to get out into the sunshine (?) And what better way to do it than with a Habitat for Humanity working bee! We will be meeting at 9am this Saturday 29th September at Kay / Terry’s house (Lincoln Street) to work on the fence. Keep an eye on the blog site for any cancellation news if the weather is dodgy

Work on the fence cancelled

Hi. With the consistent rain and the fact that it gets muddy up there, we have decided to cancel the working bee on Kaye and Terry's fence for Saturday 18th. Watch this space for the next opportunity.

Working Bee Saturday 18th August

On Saturday at 9 a.m. we are planning to finish off the fence at Kay and Terry's place on Lincoln Street.
If the weather is wet it gets very muddy up there so we ask that you check the Habitat answer phone (4773507) or our blog for information about cancellation.

A good morning's work



Eight people completely emptied our tool box container and spread all the tools and materials around the site. Gradually we worked through what was worth keeping and what should be discarded. We marked Habitat for Humanity tools (and a few other fingers and things) with a flourescent green squirt of paint and carefully replaced everything in the container. Now remember this. The tools are stored on the right hand side shelves and the materials (nails, paint, tiles etc. ) stashed on the left hand shelves. Now if you mess the container up you may well have eight people jump on you! It was good to catch up on just what we had and sometimes we heard Martin say, "I didn't know we had those!" or "We needed that!" A scream of delight indicated that Jane had found her specially named pencil! We enjoyed the sunny day. It was good to be doing some "Habitating" together again. There is still rubbish to clear, but we were all done and on our way by lunch time. Thank you to all who could make it. The next session will be...?.. watch this space!
