We are now referring to ourselves as Save Ngunguru Sandspit (SNS).This is our new brand name. The legal name of the entity Ngunguru Sandspit Protection Society Incorporated (NSaPS) has not changed.

Another name change that may be of interest is the Todd Property Group ownership of Whakairiora and the four Sandspit Titles has new company names. Whakairiora ownership was known as Mathers Butt, then Neverlands, then Landco and later Todd Property Group. Now the ownership is listed officially as Ngunguru Coastal Investments Limited, a subsidiary of Todd Property Group. The 4 Sandspit Titles are legally known as Ngunguru Coastal Holdings Limited, another subsidiary of Todd Property Group.

19 June 2011 - 1 July 2011 Art Exhibition. On Location showing Anneke Muijlwijk watercolours and other artworks depicting The Ngunguru Sandspit and its stakeholders. Viewing from 10am 5.30pm in the Old Library, 7 Rust Avenue, Whangarei. This exhibition is supported by Save Ngunguru Sandspit.

Saturday 13 August 2011 (Change of date) the Annual General Meeting is to be held in the Ngunguru Memorial Hall at 2.00 pm. Do please support our very hard working team. The present campaign to protect the sandspit from built development takes every opportunity to raise the issue at central and local government level. It has been 6 years since Landco proposed a 350 lot subdivision on the sandspit. The present owners are still negotiating with the Government but during this cash-strapped period and with no suitable landswap agreed, our aim to have the sandspit in safe hands must continue. We cannot afford to be complacent and we are always looking for new ideas to progress the SNS campaign. As our present secretary and treasurer are not offering themselves for re-election the newly elected executive committee is considering appointing an honorary person for these positions should no one be available to fill these roles. However if any of you wish to assist with these positions or wish to be on the executive Committee (3 vacancies), please do consider putting your name forward as a committee member. All nominations must be with the secretary by 25 July.

The Department of Conservation (DOC) is reviewing the Conservation Management Strategy (CMS). DOC needs to hear about all the places and conservation assets including landscape, environmental, biodiversity and heritage conservation which matter to you. It needs your feedback on the places you value locally or regionally for recreation. If you live in the Northland area and have a mailbox you should get a card from DOC regarding feedback it wants from you. So to all our Friends, not only to those living in Northland but also to those who holiday here or have visited we ask that you make a special mention of Ngunguru sandspit even though it is in private ownership. This does not exclude this sensitive site from being incorporated in the CMS. The Whangarei Coast is a mosaic of unspoilt beaches, headlands, estuaries, dunefields and the Ngunguru sandspit. The information received will be used to construct DOCs revised CMS. The sandspit and its surrounding area require robust conservation management.
