Our AGM is Thursday, 20 October 2011, 7:30 pm in the Ngaio Town Hall, followed by supper. All welcome! We expect a short meeting with lots of time afterwards to chat informally over tea and biscuits. Some of our local councillors and Mayor Celia Wade-Brown will be there, so you can catch up with them too.

The issue of the day is changing our name from Ngaio Progressive Association to Ngaio and Crofton Downs Residents Association. We represent the residents of both suburbs, so want a name that says so.

Come and find out more about us. You may like to:

  • Become a member of the association.
  • Join our committee. We just do the things that most interest us, such as taking part in planting bees, designing pamphlets, helping with the website, writing submissions to council, or organising local events. No-one does everything – or too much.
  • Offer to help with one or two specific events such as the junk drive or a planting bee.

Armed with spades and grubbers, we planted out 100 shrubs from Wellington City Council in a couple of hours. Ngaio Progressive Association had another working bee behind the Playcentre on Silverstream Road recently. We planted shrubs that enjoy growing beside streams – such as flaxes, kowhai, wineberry.

Whether it’s number 8 wire, the old bed, your kitchen sink, or your old kitchen, then if it’s your trash it maybe someone else’s treasure.. We will not have a Used Good Junk stall on Khandallah Road this year because the trucks must finish collecting junk by 1 p.m. If you have good junk you can take it to the Second Treasure shop at Wellington’s Southern Landfill. Does riding around Ngaio in a rubbish truck appeal.

A feature article in December’s North and South by local historian Peter Dyer tells how the tenants managed to negotiate a separate contract with NZRC. In the 1920s the Railways Department built a housing settlement in Tarikaka Street. This meant most people could buy their own homes and keep their community intact. The NZ Railways Corporation sold off their housing stock. The Great Railway House Bazaar.
