CB members

Another photo by Eva from Thursday’s swearing in ceremony, this one showing all 4 members of each of the 4 boards (except a member of the Paekakariki board who had to be at her brother’s wedding in Australia) — from left: Otaki members, Waikanae members, Paekakariki members and Paraparaumu-Raumati members.

During his campaign Guru promised to Empower the Community Boards with more delegated responsibilities — and we hope that it’s a promise that will be kept.

This photo also shows the ngahere / forest (consisting of real native shrubs) created for the occasion which we loved: well done, iwi members!
