[Sophie Edwards] has worked with Maori, the Whangarei Native Bird Recovery Centre, the Ngunguru Sandspit Protection Society, G.E. Free Northland and the Tutukaka Coast Residents and Ratepayers Association.

Five people received red-carpet treatment when they were presented with Whangarei District Council civic honours awards at a special function in the council chambers.

The five - Des Coutts, Fred and Mary Field, Merv Rusk and Sophie Edwards - joined an illustrious roll of citizens recognised for their community service since civic honours were first awarded by the former Whangarei City Council in 1987 and continued by the district council since 1992.

Police are urging Northland boat owners to go to extra lengths to secure their boats.

This comes after a spate of incidents where boats and outboard motors have been stolen in the Whangarei and Kaipara districts.

In the past two weeks, five outboard motors have been reported stolen in Matapouri, Tutukaka and Dargaville.

Police say the thieves have been carrying out their crimes during the night and targeting boats that have been parked on driveways.

Monday, 22 July 2013

Safety concerns caused by rapidly shifting sands and exposed rocks have prompted a local authority decision to remove the navigation lights on the beacons at the harbour entrance to Ngunguru.

Jim Lyle, the Northland Regional Council's Opua-based Regional Harbourmaster, says ongoing, large-scale movement of the sand in the area meant the lights no longer marked the actual channel entrance and they would be removed today to deter people from attempting to enter at night.

A migrating humpback

Volunteers at a Northland marine conservation trust have had a close encounter with a pair of migrating humpback whales.

Silvia Streit was finishing her morning coffee at the Orca Research and Education Centre, on the clifftops between Matapouri and Tutukaka, when she saw a whale spout in the distance about 9am on Monday.

Marine mammal expert Ingrid Visser, of the Orca Research Trust, identified the source as a pair of humpback whales so, joined by Mrs Streit's husband Walter and fellow volunteer Robert Lehmann, they set off in an inflatable boat to find them.

Hello Full Members and Friends

We of your Ngunguru Sandspit Protection Society committee had our last formal communication with you via newsletter just before Christmas.

However we enjoyed catching up face to face with many Friends and members of the public through our attendance at important community events including the Ngunguru Fair and Matapouri Gala where we raised awareness about the Sandspit.

Now its time to share an update and a cuppa at our AGM. We warmly invite you to the AGM on Saturday July 6 at 2pm in the Ngunguru Memorial Hall.
