Kia ora Friends of Taranaki Retreat
Celebrate and sing, because the floors are done!
Thanks to the fantastic hard work of :
...the three concrete floors are now complete! The floor for the Guest Lodge; the Sanctuary and the Sleepout. Here you can see the stages of preparation....And now, the floors fully finished! This brings the completion of the Retreat a whole new stage closer!
Thank you for all the support we have been given over the last few weeks. We are keen to open as soon as we can; the Retreat regularly receives enquiries from people asking when we will be able to accommodate individuals or families to stay.
We still have some funding hurdles to achieve before the Lodge itself can be completed - and we would very very much appreciate your support.
So, what else has been happening?
Lots of work on planting - the first lot of fruit trees have just been planted...and Craig is busy doing hard work on the vegetable area, treating the soil and preparing it for the season ahead.
Much work has been done on the Retreat Family home, and on landscaping the site. Check out these fantastic steps :
Thanks to the kindness of Powerco, and the generosity of "Z" and Cables New Zealand - we are much much closer to the installation of electricity for the site. We just need a little help from an engineer, and we will be there!
Thank you for your support - these are exciting times!
