Calling all Surfing Mums (and Dads)

I'd be super keen to meet other surfing mums/dads with young kids for shared surf fun/babysitting sessions. Other towns have official "surfing mums" clubs, but I don't think there's anything formal going in Dunners yet. I'd be happy to set something up or keep it informal if anyone is keen. Drop me an email if this sounds good to you:

Join St Clair Action Group

A group has been formed to urge the Dunedin City Council to take some educated action around the dramatic erosion that is occurring as a result of the sea wall design at St Clair.
St Clair Action Group is on Facebook and is a healthy forum for robust discussion around the issue with lots of experts coming out of the woodwork to share the facts.
Anyone is welcome to join the group with the objectives to educate the group and encourage DCC to make its decisions based on the science. The group's first priority is to protect the safety of beach users at high tide. Join here:
