As usual the Auckland Committee has been beavering away this year and was able to announce good news from the fundraising point of view. We have been fortunate in gaining new funds to help with the tasks of the Association and to furnish the office. Also we had a welcome donation of a computer and a framed print for the office - now just need to get the data in and for me to leam how not delete!

You all realise that the committee meets about every six weeks on a Tuesday night:
7.30pm at 7A Taylors Road - all welcome

 OFFICE TIMES: The Field Officer and/or a volunteer are actually in the office Wednesdays 11.30 -12.30, or by arrangement at other times. But between 6th September and 17th October Beth will be on leave, so the office may not be attended at these times.
