No more poo-picking from the bush this year...
Wohoooo! The weather is finally beginning to feel like summer and we have a clear result from ourwater testing so it is time to open our pool!
To celebrate this wonderful event we are inviting the Kumara community along for a swim from 4.30 to 5.30pm this Thursday evening.
This swim will be followed by a community picnic on our back field (byo picnic) which will be supported by a sausage sizzle run by our Friends of the School group (sausages $2 each). We are looking forward to celebrating the start of our summer swimming season with you all. Pool keys will be available for sale at this event. (Please note anyone who wishes to swim after 5:30pm will need to be with a pool key holder, and any one under the age of 16 years will need to be supervised by an adult from this time.)
N.B. School swimming will then begin on Friday so please remember to send along your child’s togs, towel and swimming bag.
Please note, that this digital copy has an additional page that the print copy does not. So even if you get the print copy delivered to you, make sure you check out this online copy for updates from Maureen Pugh, Damien O'Connor, and West Reap.

You may be eligible for a rebate on your 2017/2018 rates.
The Rates Rebate Scheme is administered by the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA). It provides a subsidy to low-income homeowners on the cost of their rates.
The maximum rebate is $620. The income threshold is $24,790 and is increased by $500 for each dependant in the household.
Homeowners can apply for the rebate from 1 July 2017, for the 2017/18 rating year. The closing date for applications is 30 June 2018.
Rates Rebates forms for 2017/2018 now available at i-SITE. You can also download them from the Department of Internal Affairs website.
Westland District Council will also be holding a rates roadshow throughout Westland in August in various locations around the region where you get help with completing your rates rebate applications and get more information regarding rates in general.
