The Rivercare Group - Our Values
To have the well-being of the awa as central to all our activities
To maintain respect, integrity, compassion and transparency in all our endeavours
To embody and respect Tikanga Maori
How we began
Our Rivercare Group was conceived in early 2019 from a growing sense of concern about the well-being of our much loved awa - Te Wai o Pareira /Henderson Creek/Huruhuru
A poorly managed and significant untreated sewage discharge into the Huruhuru Creek in October 2018 galvanised us into ac[on.
We held our first public meeting in February 2019. From this our Rivercare Group formed and has grown considerably since then. We have been busy building our organisation, growing our understanding, networking and progressing numerous initiatives. Currently we have 10-15 active volunteers, 160 individuals on our mailing list and over 580 members in our Facebook Group.
