Water Tank Update

It was a long standing wish of Dave Harrés to replace the old and leaking corrugated iron water tank in the same style. He would now be delighted to hear the news that funding for this has become available through an Auckland Council Waitakere Ranges Quick Response grant.

For Dave the importance of the water tank to early settlers should not be forgotten when telling the story of life as it was in early Oratia.
