Join us on June 24 2019 for our AGM followed by Chris Dugdale who will be speaking on " A Passion for Property, Projects and People". Our June meeting and AGM will be at Meridian Energy Ltd Wellington Office, Meridian Energy Building, Level 2, 33 Customhouse Quay, Queen's Wharf, Wellington 6011.
Chris and Warwick Dugdale could be relaxing into retirement but instead the community-minded couple and a team of volunteers have spent months getting six new houses ready for sale to raise money for charity.
The couple founded the Dugdale Charitable Trust in 2012 and have already built and sold six houses in the Wairarapa, using their own money to fund the start-up costs.
Their philanthropy has boosted the coffers of Wellington rescue helicopter Life Flight, Ronald McDonald House, Plunket and Wairarapa Hospice. 24-06-2019 more >>
A complete plants package - without a hefty price tag Landscaping supplies can cost you an arm, and a leg as well as your patience. Adding up the price of plants, the time deciding which plants are right for the environment, not to mention the to-ing and fro-ing, loading and off-loading â€“ well, it can leave more than your budget broken. So, we were pleasantly surprised when we discovered thereâ€™s something like flat pack furniture, but for the outdoors. In short, itâ€™s a complete (and affordable) plants package that provides you with what you need to create an entire garden, including plants, shrubbery, flowers and trees. 20-06-2019 more >>
