Heavy Rain brings flood

The big down pour Wednesday 15th July flooded Oratia stream and our lower fields. Big logs, trunks and debri are scattered across the large field and more of our sandy banks have eroded and been lost to mother nature. Simon’s lovely willow seat cut from a dead tree also was a casualty – it was big and heavy and about 2m above the bank, and it is now nowhere to be seen. The last time we had such a big flood was August 2008 the first year we were here.


New Site is live

We are actually live with the new website as of 6th July. The calendar page is up to date and hopefully all my spell checks have been done. Please let me know if you do find any. Our old site appears to have had a few that slipped through the cracks. I only found them when I was editing the content for this one and I was horrified that they had been up on the public forum for so long! OOoops. Big sorry about that, as it is one of the things that bugs me.
