Last week
20 Members plus speaker Jonathon Rowe
 
THIS WEEKS MEETING  Tuesday 24 May AT THE STAFF CLUB 
 Professor Craig Rodger on Antarctic Expeditions 
 
Last weeks speaker  
Jonathon Rowe, DCC Programme Manager on South Dunedin Future spoke on the issues with floods especially after the 2015 event.  There is concern with reports on the effect of rising sea water with global warming and the increasing likelihood of heavy rainfall events.  Much of South Dunedin had been reclaimed in the 19th century and some areas are barely above the current high tide mark. There is no natural outlet for water. The City is keen to ensure that any remediation work done will not be short term fixes but will cope with any issues over the next 100 years. There will be a need to work with the Regional Council, the Government,  insurers and property owners to share the costs which will be involved.  There are not likely to be any decisions within 5 years as engineering solutions are assessed.  
 
Gardening Project
 A team will be required on Saturday 28 May at 132 Gladstone Road, North Dunedin 9am-12 noon.  Bring chainsaws , rakes, secateurs etc.  
 
What"s up Correction

A separate email will be sent shortly 
 
 What's Up
David Goodchild spoke about the  move to Highgate Bridge (next to One Agency, said Stephen Johnston) and the decision that after 12 months they would either stay or sell.  Been there 20 months now, loving it with shops, restaurants and walks and, with 8 buses an hour passing by, have downsized to one car.  The apartment is over three floors, garage, then bedrooms with the top floor open plan living. A lift, currently used only for shopping and rubbish and the occasional visitor, will cope with later years. Well insulated, fortunately missing some afternoon sun as it would become too hot otherwise. 
David stressed the need to keep up with technology as we grow older especially with the removal of cheques making life difficult for some and the benefits of the internet in keeping in touch. The advantage of having an Apple watch when falling down was shown recently when David was told he had fallen "Are to OK" it said.  Failing an adequate response it would have rung Sandra, his daughter and failing an answer from them would have gone through to St John's who would have been able to locate him.
