Last night the Kaipatiki Local Board hosted the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Pest Free Kaipātiki and Auckland Council, and I was proud to sign it on behalf of the Kaipātiki Local Board. Congratulations to Jo Knight, chair of Pest Free Kaipātiki, and everyone who has worked so hard over a number of years to get to this point, including Richard Hursthouse, Keith Salmon and David Roberts.

The MOU is the formalisation of what has already proven to be a fruitful and collaborative partnership, and will enable Council to better support Pest Free Kaipātiki with the enormous task of eradicating pest plants and predators from our bush reserves and preventing the spread of kauri dieback. This fantastic work could not be completed without this huge group of dedicated volunteers. Thankyou to everyone involved!
