CUE Haven Gets A Face Lift—27 September 2014
Our friend Dianne, who lives over two hours away from CUE Haven in the southern outskirts of Auckland, asked if she could bring up a group of her family and friends to visit CUE Haven. According to Dianne, the objective was to relax and explore and help out a bit.
The group arrived on Thursday afternoon and included Anna, Chook, Dianne, Iloa, Julia, Julz, Kate and Robyn.
We got acquainted over afternoon tea and then took the group for a walk around the property.
The group stayed overnight at CUE Haven and when we returned mid morning on Friday to see the group off we didn’t recognise the place! They had weeded the entire area in front of the house and in the orchard, spread bark mulch and even built a small retaining wall along the driveway.
They were still busy at work and our nephews Yazdy and Xerxes who had come up with us for the day joined in.
This is how the area looked before the group went to work.
And this is how it looks now!
What a transformation!! We can’t get over the difference and can’t thank the group enough for all their hard work!
We also would like to thank Treescape NZ for their continued support and the generous donation of the mulch.
And thank you to Yazdy and Xerxes who gave up the first day of their school holidays to help out.
A big thank you to Dianne for organising the visit. And our many thanks to everyone who came along. It was great meeting you all and getting to know you. We really appreciate your hard work and the major contribution you’ve made to the CUE Haven project. We hope you will come back to see us again soon!
