PAVITT COTTAGE TRUST
Financial statements and audit report for the year
Working Bee March 2011
Not shown in these photos is the 'support group' comprising of Mary Browne, Helen Leach, Jacqui & Ellen George and Nancy Tichborne. They worked hard too! Trimming shrubbery, clearing track to the creek, cleaning out the gravel from the base of wash-house, cleaning silver cutlery, boiling water for dishes & feeding the cold, muddy & hungry workers.
Some of you might recall this venerable fence post being featured on
the front page of the 2010 Pavitt Cottage Press... It is thought to be
one of the original corner posts of the Pavitt's 100 acre block (Rural
Section 579). It looks like a totara trunk - used without any splitting
or shaping. Our neighbour Eric Ryder has been busy doing improvements
to his farm - including a new fence along Sawmill Road. He kindly let
us have the old post - a true Pavitt taonga! This was re-erected in front
of the cottage by Peter Haylock & Bryan Tichborne - for all to admire.
