The Apple – Winter 2014


The Oratia Apple is the newsletter of the Oratia Ratepayers’ and Residents’ Association, and is published on a quarterly basis, roughly in line with the seasons.

The Apple is delivered free of charge to homes and businesses in Shaw Rd, Carter Rd, Parker Rd, Kellys Rd, Holden Rd, Nicolas Ave and the parts of West Coast, Glengarry Rd and Forest Hill Rds that fall within the Oratia area. We also deliver extra copies to the dairy, so if you get in quick you might be able to pick one up from there.

We’re always on the lookout for items of community interest for the Apple, so please do keep us in the loop on any activities, events or newsworthy occasions or personalities in the neighbourhood.
