Verse of The Day
“Na i te ono o nga marama ka tonoa a Kapariera, te anahera, e te Atua ki tetahi pa o Kariri, ko Nahareta te ingoa, Ki tetahi wahine i taumautia ma tetahi tangata, ko Hohepa te ingoa, no te whare o Rawiri; ko te ingoa o te wahine ko Meri. Na, ko tona haerenga ki roto, ki a ia, ka mea, Tena koe, e te wahine kua manakohia nei; kei a koe te Ariki: ko koe te manaakitia i roto i nga wahine.” (Luke 1:26-28)

After a meeting at Schnappa Rock, also attended by Department of Conservation Northland conservator Chris Jenkins, Ms Chadwick announced that negotiations to save the spit from development and put it into public ownership had started.

Ms Chadwick said she was keen to meet the Ngunguru Sandspit Protection Society...

Earlier in the day the Minister met representatives of the Ngunguru Sandspit Protection Society to discuss their concerns about the sandspit being developed.
