A significant milestone was reached at the May 29 meeting at the Hataitai Bowling Club with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Hataitai Community Recreation Trust (HCRT) and the Hataitai Community House and Childcare Collective Inc. (HCCCH), merging the two facilities’ management systems into a Joint Management Committee.
Chair of the MOU Working group, Barbara Benson said that a group of four, representing the two organisations, had taken the initial work of a sub- committee and refined it over a six months period to produce the finished document.
“Now the combined Joint Management Committee can progress under a new structure which will manage the two facilities. It has taken some time to finesse the document we signed tonight, but it was worth all the time we put in,” says Barbara.
“Tonight is testimony to all the work that has been going on in Hataitai to give residents the diversity of services it requires. A Feasibility Survey of Residents thoughts about the use of the Hataitai Bowling Club is underway at the moment and transport issues are being addressed.”
During the signing evening, guests congratulated Jane de Lisle who has been a long term dedicated secretary for meetings for many years.
