Our annual quiz night was held on Thursday 6 August 2020 and what a great night it was. We had more than 40 teams come along, and $2290 was raised. This is all money that goes back into running events and programmes in our community so thanks to everyone who came along to support the event. Big thanks to Judge and the team at the Newfield Tavern for hosting the night and their generous donation. We also want to thank the numerous businesses and individuals shown below who sponsored the prizes for our raffles. We couldn't have run the night without your support.

South Alive is entering into a partnership with NIWA to enable the local community to participate in a pilot project monitoring the degree of air pollution in its neighbourhood. The community indicated it was concerned about air quality in South Invercargill and that community members wanted to participate in air quality research at a recent public meeting, when Dr Ian Longley, Principal Scientist, invited the community to be part of this programme, through having monitors in their homes as part of a pilot project. This project will come under the umbrella of the South Alive Housing Action team.
South Alive will support this project by distributing air quality monitors and supporting follow-up meetings for project participants and NIWA at our community space. The air quality information belongs to the participants but is used by NIWA (and Environment Southland) to understand more about air quality and will, therefore, give South Invercargill residents more understanding of local air pollution and what they can do to have a healthier home.

Next Date: Tuesday 25th August 2020
If you have any queries or concerns about things in your community then come on down and have a chat with our local South City Constable & now the Senior Firefighter – Red Watch Invercargill.
They will be both located in The Pantry at one of the tables.
