Community offers help for repairs

Moeraki residents are keen to work with the Moeraki liaison group, a subcommittee of the Waihemo Community Board and the board to help solve problems confronting the town.

More than 50 people attended a public meeting at the Coronation hall in Moeraki on Saturday. Haven St was seen as the main priority, followed by the drainage problems in the town and the need for more tree planting, people at the meeting said.

Three diggers, two smaller diggers and three big trucks could be made available by residents to help in the reconstruction of the temporarily closed section of Haven St, former Moeraki tavern joint owner Brian Todd said.

Other people had offered money to cover the costs of using of the truck.

Heavy traffic into Moeraki was causing some of the problems in Haven St, Waihemo community board chairman Geoff Foote, of Flag Swamp, who chaired the Moeraki liaison group meeting, said.

There was ''no easy solution'', Mr Foote said at the meeting.
