Thank you to Matt Mills for speaking to us on the electrical work he has been doing for Compac Homes.  He gave a rundown on these "tiny homes", an industry which is growing and providing an alternative, affordable housing option. 
Our no. 2 Sergeant was on form again, thankfully this week it was not another multi choice quiz on moi! It was fun finding out an unknown fact about the members present including "who in the club met and got autographs from the Beatles on their NZ tour?!
Trust you all enjoyed your three day Queens Birthday weekend.  With the UK influence in our family here and in London, the term ''bank holiday" has been mentioned a few times.  So has the Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee and the fact that she started her reign at the age of 25 on the death of her father King George VI in February 1952.  It is quite an achievement when one considers Queen Elizabeth has been the reigning sovereign for 70 years of Rotary in New Zealand. 
We have had a couple requests from District if any club members are able to assist:
