Can you provide a stable and loving environment for tamariki until it’s safe for them to return home?
All children need a place where they can feel at home with their wider whānau or caregivers. Those who can give them aroha, a place of belonging and connection with family, whakapapa and culture
Caregiving can be hard at times but the rewards can be amazing. Your aroha can make all the difference.

BIN TAKE BACK IS COMING
QLDC is organising Bin Take-Back - a one-off free collection of old kerbside wheelie bins.
It is optional and residents are welcome to keep their old kerbside bins if they want to. The collected bins will be recycled in Christchurch.
Old, empty bins should be put out by 7am on the correct Bin Take-Back day and left out until picked up (it may take a few days to pick them all up).
Glenorchy’s Bin Take-Back day is Friday 1 November.
If you live in a township, place your old bins at your normal kerbside bin collection spot.
If you live in a subdivision or country road off the main highways listed below, bring your old bins out to the highway and leave them on the verge.
Glenorchy-Queenstown Rd from Sunshine Bay to Glenorchy (includes Closeburn and Bob’s Cove)
You can also drop off your old empty kerbside bins to the inorganic collection site during Labour weekend (8am-5pm, Saturday 26 October - Monday 28 October) at: Glenorchy rec ground (access via corner of Mull and Oban Streets).
The Bin Take-Back programme is for the QLDC red rubbish bin and QLDC blue recycling bin. New kerbside bins and bins from other waste providers will not be collected as part of Bin Take-Back.

Everyone who completes the survey can go into the draw to win one of three $150 dinner vouchers.
It will really help to understand the barriers to minimising waste so please grab a cuppa and give 5 minutes to answer the questions

STOLEN FROM GLENORCHY PLAYGROUP
Thank you to whoever stole some of the freshly split firewood from outside the playgroup this week… That was intended as part of our fundraising effort this year which enables us to provide the awesome playgroup facility for the little kids and their families in GY. Everyone else was paying $80 per meter for it so if your conscience has gotten the better of you, feel free to pop that into the playgroup account ( 03-1369-0306821-00) and no further questions will be asked… Alternatively if you know the ‘so and so’ who stole it, please let them know our community doesn’t dig this sort of behaviour or send their details to email@example.com and we will let them know.
FREE OUTDOOR GLASS TABLE & CHAIR
