So, yesterday, on behalf of everyone who has contributed to the PBFT journey, I received this very special and humbling gratitude stone from the lovely Debs Hancock and the inspiring team at Taiki E, acknowledging all our mahi over the last few years - I think that it might be 5 years!!! So well done all of you!

And a big shout out to the Taiki E team and everything that they are doing - including the their #fridaydoey.

Now I have the privilege of passing this little beauty on to someone else, to express my gratitude to them. I cannot stop thinking about all of the people within our lovely community to whom I am grateful - so so so so many. How to pick one????? For now I carry this stone in my pocket and feel grateful for gratitude and those who share it. Arohanui.

DrainWise Art Competition – be in to win $250 and see your artwork on a stormwater grate in town.
The competition’s open to anyone from Tairāwhiti Gisborne – all ages welcome.
Your creative design will help raise awareness of stormwater pollution with a message that anything we throw, tip or spill into a roadside gutter goes down a stormwater drain and ends up in our rivers and sea, affecting the wildlife that live in and around the water.
Check our website for all the details and the forms to enter the competition and submit your artwork.
The competition closes 12pm Friday 28 February, so check it out now bit.ly/2S7zwxG
