RENA expected to break up today (Tues Nov 1), Maketu Call for Help

1 min read

Kiaora everybody,

We have had word from ICC HQ that the Rena is predicted to break-up on tonights low tide (6pm) and that the modelling shows Maketu will be the worst hit.

We have been told to prepare for a worse case scenario.

In that regard, we are calling on all our volunteers to come and help for two clean ups tomorrow in Maketu. The first deployment at 9am and the second at 4pm. Meet at the marae.

If there is anyone who wants to help but cannot be on the beach involved in the clean-ups (for whatever reason), your help at the marae and/or donations of food/beverageswould bemost appreciated.

In case of a large turnout, please be patient as we sort out the logistics – teams and team leaders and depolyment areas.

Hope to see you tomorrow.


The Maketu Beach Cleanup Team
