Tim has been the Chairman of Te Whanau Hou (Grovetown Lagoon Restoration group) for many years.
During that time, as well as removing weeds, planting lots of native trees and creating new tracks, he has donated his design skills and staff time to plan both a Bird Hide near the Southern Outlet and a bridge to span Steam Wharf Stream. This provides access to a new track which now circumnavigates the lagoon since March 2019 when a stylish double curve boardwalk, also designed by Tim, was completed across Kelly’s Creek.
Very many local volunteers have also provided generous amounts of time and expertise towards these projects.
