Great day for Sumner school plant-out

On Thursday 5th June, children from two classes at Sumner School enjoyed a lovely afternoon on the Sumner Dunes. They helped Jason Roberts, Head Ranger for the Christchurch City Council, plant natives such as Pingao, Cassinia and Spinifex. The plants will help build and strengthen the dunes and in doing so protect the village against possible flooding in the event of a big sea storm.

On Sunday 29th June from 10am – 12noon there will be another planting session at the dunes followed by free BBQ – with lots more plants to go in the ground. This will be the biggest plant out of the year for the Sumner Coastcare Project so come along and lend a hand!
