 Annual General Meeting   

The Annual General Meeting is to be held on the 7th December 2016 at the Matua Hall   7.30 PM  All residents are welcome to attend. New members are always welcome and new committee members are always sought to add fresh ideas and energy to our community.

 

 

Lock your cars - There has been recent activity in early Matua.

Last year the community suffered from the activities of one individual with theft from cars. Unfortunately too many of our residents leave cars unlocked and valuables within easy reach. Please make sure you keep your vehicles locked, even when on your own property. Take valuables inside and keep doors locked. Currently there has been activity of this nature in and around Meadowland St.

 If you can help with Community Patrols please check out the relevant information on this website. 

Tsunami Awareness

MRA is actively supporting the TCC Tsunami Awareness program as the consequences of a Tsunami would be significant in our community and the surrounding  suburbs. The area along Levers Road is deemed to be a SAFE ZONE and we therefore promote the Matua Hall, Matua Primary grounds and Matua Bowling Club as areas in which to assemble. The hall would be the centre of coordination for assistance and it is probable we would be standing alone.The magnitude earthquake to create a Tsunami would be Grade 8 and be centred in the Kermadec trench off East cape. There would be a fifty minute timeframe after the earthquake to get to the Safe Zones. There will be no time to wait for Civil Defence instruction as at best they need an hour minimum for staff to arrive, if at all possible. All electricity and phone lines would be severely affected by the level of quake.

Families, neighbours and organisations need to have a plan of action in place, as well as basic supplies. Always have a separate supply of medications, either in your emergency pack or located in your car or with family/friends nearby.  More on this will follow.

Neighbourhood Support

We are actively promoting this community and Police initiative to assist in both Civil emergency and crime prevention. Two committee members have volunteered to be coordinators for Matua and are working through the present list of street coordinators to update records  Contact Nedil Chinnery Brown on 5765991 to discuss further.

 

 

Emergency Response

In the event of an emergency we seek a list of volunteers who are prepared to assist.

                         If called upon can you assist?

 

At present we are faced with the possibility of oil on our foreshore.
