At the Mercury Bay Community Board meeting that was held on Wednesday last week, a letter from Rear Admiral John Martin ONZM, chief the Royal New Zealand Navy, to Thames Coromandel District Council mayor, Sandra Goudie was tabled.

A total of 324 children attended the 18th Mercury Bay Day Camp from Wednesday to Friday last week. “It was three days of skidding and sliding fun,” says Tina Bartlett, the camp director.

As is every year the case, the available spaces were filled within a few days from when the registrations opened.

Consultation has now closed on TCDC's 2018-2028 Long Term Plan.

Staff are busily collating submissions and undertaking initial analysis of the points raised for consideration by both Community Boards and Council. A total of 775 submissions were received – a huge amount of feedback from TCDC communities that elected members are said to be looking forward to engaging with.
