Helping hands make light work

Community volunteers are the heart and soul of our country.

They work tirelessly during the week, on weekends and even on public holidays – to preserve our precious natural assets.

Such is the case with the Northampton Environmental Group (NEG) who in the midst of the Labour Day Public Holiday, held a very successful AGM and ordinary meeting – for which NACC Team were grateful to be a part of.

Below is the lovely Nokanena Report February 2016 written by NEG Secretary Dawn Porter.


The farmers are a bit depressed,

Their land is looking dry

But we at Nokanena

Though for them, ask why?

(We’re a bit parochial)


Our mighty little watering team

Is getting settled in its action

Anchored firmly by our Syl

Who we address ‘Captain’


No, we’re doing alright really,

It’s a pleasant way to spend a morning

With help from NACC and MEEDAC

A scheduled we are forming –

We’re making progress with our plans


When the retic works well

It works really well

We’ve has a bit of a battle

But now the difference we can tell


It’s time again to make our pan

Choose the spots for planting

Invite our guests

And look forward to the rain
