Thank you everyone who contributed with this process, we are getting new rubbish bins and the grant to maintain the toilet at the sportsground has increased.  While the Greenstone Road footpath didn’t make the cut for this year, it is now top of the list for footpath upgrades in Kumara, so it’s just a matter of timing & $$.

Kumara Residents Trust welcomes the new Kumara Memorial Hall committee.  It was great that the previous public meeting facilitated by KRT resulted in a successful Kumara Memorial Hall AGM.  The Hall is a great facility for our community and it is great that there are new volunteers keen to be actively involved.  As an umbrella group for the community, KRT will continue to support this committee in their endeavours as required.  For example, KRT recently submitted (on behalf of the Hall Committee) a Community Organisation Grant (COGS) application which included funding for the Kumara Memorial Hall to cover general running expenses (insurance, power etc).  If the application is successful, KRT will work closely with the Hall Committee to administer this funding.
