Dear Rohe Management Office,


We are thrilled to have Imagine Films in Picton this Thursday (4th July) screening "Fools and Dreamers: Regenerating a Native Forest".  This 30-minute documentary tells the story of Hinewai Nature Reserve, on Canterbury’s Banks Peninsula, and its kaitiaki/manager of 30 years, botanist Hugh Wilson. We learn about the commitment of Hugh and the Maurice White Native Forest Trust to regenerate marginal, hilly farmland into native forest, using a minimal interference method that allows nature to do the work, giving life to over 1500 hectares of native forest, waterways, and the creatures that live within them.  You can view the trailer here: https://happenfilms.com/fools-and-dreamers and book your tickets click here.


Also just a reminder that the Kaipupu AGM is coming up on Sunday 25th of August, 10 am at Picton Library.  Pete Hamill will be our guest speaker this year, talking on the recently launched Kotahitanga mō te Taiao Alliance, a collaboration of Nelson, Tasman, Marlborough, Buller and Kaikōura councils, the West Coast Regional Council, a number of iwi in the region and the Department of Conservation, all providing environmental leadership and co-ordination to protect and enhance the wider region's diverse flora and fauna.

If you are planning on attending please RSVP, Rachel - 027 692 3488 or admin@kaipupupoint.co.nz or if you are interested in joining the management committee please also get in touch with me.  An official agenda will be sent out later this month, we look forward to seeing you there.


Kind regards,

Rachel Russell

Project Coordinator

Governance Bites Session 6: The Role of the Chair & Getting People Engaged

Session 6 of the popular Governance Bites series is coming up on Wednesday 3 July. This will take place in the Stubbs Lounge, Wesley Centre, 3 Henry Street from 5:30 to 7:30.


The Role of the Chair, and Getting People Engaged


Participation is the purpose. Otherwise you may as well send an email. Sounds good in theory, but how do you actually do it when there are so many barriers and habits conspiring to get in the way? 

This session will give you handy tips to get things done while you are having fun, overcome some of the most common barriers to participation, and use consensus in practice (without falling into 'group think').


This session will be led by Garth Nowland-Foreman, an experienced trainer and facilitator, and not-for-profit governance expert. Garth is a director of LEAD Centre for Not-for-Profit & Leadership www.lead.org.nz



To register for this event, please visit the following link:  https://govbites6.eventbrite.co.nz


Future sessions:

  • Wednesday 7 August
  • Wednesday 4 September
  • Wednesday 2 October
  • Wednesday 6 November
  • Wednesday 4 December
