No.# Squadron coming to Kawerau

Next Monday, keep your eyes on the sky in Kawerau as there may be a high flying visitor to town.

The No.3 Squadron of the Royal New Zealand Air Force will be based at Kawerau’s Firmin Lodge as part of a week-long team building exercise.

Kawerau District Council’s Events and Venues Manager, Lee Barton said that when the approach was made he saw the opportunity to make a community event of the visit.

“I was thrilled to be approached by the RNZAF to stay at Firmin Lodge – they’ll have more than 80 personnel through the week and they were attracted by the adventure opportunities that would be on their doorstep. But it was also great to work with the Flight Lieutenant in charge of the trip to get some community engagement as well. I’m sure they will have a fantastic time with us in Kawerau,” Mr Barton said.

As part of the visit, RNZAF personnel will spend time meeting students at Tarawera High School, which will hopefully include a special appearance of one of the impressive utilities available to the Squadron – NH90 or A109 helicopters (unless the helicopter is required for service elsewhere).

Additionally, during their stay the personnel hope to roll up their sleeves and spend an afternoon volunteering at the Kawerau Urban Food Forest (KUFF) project on Wednesday 11 April.

KUFF coordinator, Hannah Edwardson said the team was excited to host RNZAF.

“Drawings are being sketched and resources sourced for the arrival of the RNZAF to the Kawerau Urban Food Forest. We are grateful to have the workforce come along and provide the muscle to help with some building structures around the site that will further develop our project,” Ms Edwardson said.

More information on KUFF is available on the Council’s website

  20. Thanks for discussing your ideas on this blog. Furthermore, a myth regarding the banking companies intentions any time talking about property foreclosures is that the bank will not getreceive my payments. There is a specific amount of time in which the bank requires payments from time to time. If you are also deep within the hole, they are going to commonly require that you pay the actual payment completely. However, that doesn’t mean that they will have any sort of installments at all. When you and the bank can seem to work anything out, your foreclosure approach may end. However, should you continue to miss out on payments wih the new strategy, the foreclosures process can just pick up exactly where it left off.
