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
