Dear Members,

We have had a second visit from the Wellington Health Department regarding our deck and it’s “No Smoking “status. On re-inspection unfortunately our deck does not comply in its current structure as a Smoking area as it is classed as an ‘enclosed area’.
For many years now we have been operating this enclosed area as a Smoking area illegally.

The committee will investigate and implement a smoking area that will be outside the weigh shed and the Radio Tower to accommodate those members who are smokers.

If you are a smoker the rules are:
Absolutely No Smoking on any part of the Deck at all times. All staff and committee are authorised to question any Member or Visitor who does not adhere to the rules. If you continue to disregard the rules your continuing membership will be in jeopardy. No exceptions to the rule.

Wellington Health is also party to signing off Clubs and Pubs with Councils for liquor licence renewals. It is  imperative that we comply with their current Non-Smoking ruling so that our licence is safe and full proof.

We thank you for your understanding and patience.

    Waikanae Boating Club shared Kapiti Island Nature Tours's post.
    Waikanae Boating Club

    We had some unexpected emergency action on the island over the weekend with a chimney fire in our next door neighbour's whare. Big thanks to Manaaki & Spratty who got the blaze under control quickly, and the manuhiri who helped to roll out firehoses and water pumps.

    Massive thanks as well to the Paraparaumu and Waikanae Volunteer Coastguard & the Fire Brigade teams who responded to the 111 call & came across to help. We're lucky to have such dedicated volunteers and professionals in the region. If you can, make a donation to your local volunteer emergency response team - they do us all a huge service.

    As much as we hope to never need to put our emergency response plans into action, we're glad we had the gear to get it under control before the professionals arrived.
