We would love to see as many of you as possible for our AGM on Wednesday 25th November from 7pm in the main hall at the Matakana Community Hall.
Please note we have moved from Tuesday (normally meetings are the last Tuesday of every month) so we can have use of the main hall. We have a planned both a social get together and some great guest speakers on the subject of Conservation and Restoration.
Come and join us - I think we all deserve a lovely evening with friends and neighbours in what has been a challenging year! AGM Agenda From 7pm - Social We have donations of wine and beer from local businesses who regularly support the MCG. Come and mingle with a tipple and nibbles and find out more about what we have achieved in 2020.
7.30pm - AGM Formal Business We plan to keep this short and sweet. We will present a report on what we have achieved in the last 12 months, update our financials and formally elect our committee members. The current committee are all standing for re-election but we always welcome any new faces and volunteers!
Guest Speakers We will be hearing from Friends of Awa Matakanakana (FOAM) and The Forest Bridge Trust on the theme of Conservation and Restoration. As always, please stay in touch by checking in on the Facebook page and the website.
The Matakana Community Group is an Incorporated Society with a charitable status. Our Group is involved in a wide range of community activities including town planning matters that affect the future of Matakana and its environs, traffic management issues, community events and community projects and we work hard at engaging constructively with Auckland Council, Auckland Transport and Local Community Board representatives. The MCG encourages members to come along to a meeting with ideas for projects that they see a need for in the community.
Matakana Village is in the heart of a diverse wider area that includes Mt Tamahunga, Rodney’s highest landmark clad in ecologically significant native forest, Goat Island, a world renowned marine reserve, Tawharanui Regional Park, and pristine beaches, harbours and estuaries. The village is home to the acclaimed Matakana Farmers’ Market and the Matakana Cinemas which were voted the best independent cinema in New Zealand in a recent on-line poll. In the neighbouring area there are opportunities to enjoy high quality local food and wines in restaurants, cafes and wineries.

Our Story The Matakana Community Group has evolved from the original Matakana Structure Plan group, formed about 10years ago. The first project was the Matakana to Omaha Cycle and Walking track that was officially opened in 2013. Since then the MCG has worked alongside Auckland Council, Local Rodney Board, and Auckland Transport in initiating and following through to completion a number of key projects in Matakana.
We would like to give a huge thankyou to our sponsors for their very generous donations and support.
