After a community meeting in April 2016 with Helen and Stuart where we discussed the best way to use the remainder of the funds in the Friends of Waitabu TC Winston Appeal, we decided to purchase 3 new Kawasaki TJ35 Brushcutters, one for each of the communities in the area.
Helen Sykes and her partner Stuart Gow spent the night in Waitabu to discuss, evaluate and assess the ways that the Friends of Waitabu Marine Park and how their donations could assist get the villager back on their feet.
