This year has seen slow progress towards the completion of our third sculpture along Omokoroa Road.

We found and engaged sculptor Ashley Grant to develop our idea of an anchor stone at the point of the peninsula, and turn it into a reality. However, finding a suitable stone proved very difficult and we finally decided on a chunk of Hinuera stone. This met with the approval of the local iwi. There was then a long wait before Hinuera Natural Stone Ltd excavated to the level of dura stone, which is extra hard and best suited to our needs. In February Ashley took delivery of the stone, already cut to basic shape, with generous and free help from Omokoroa Carriers.

At this stage, the carving is almost finished, some rope work will be done around the hole, and all being well, a possible installation and unveiling by Aug/Sept. (I do note I anticipated at last AGM completion by the end of 2017! Good things take time!).

We have received several grants, including a generous one from Legacy Trust, and have up to $3000 from WBOPDC if needed. We held a cake stall recently to raise money for miscellaneous expenses such as repairs and maintenance, Council levies etc.

Major repair work had to be carried out on the Lizard. It had developed a patch of rot on it's left forelimb. This was very ably taken care of by local man Peter Passfield. A closer watch will be kept on the Lizard from now on.

We wish to note the death in March of valued committee member, Margaret Hooton.
