Growers thank Grey Lynn residents

Representatives from KVH, Pipfruit NZ and Horticulture NZ knocked on around 300 doors last Thursday to present residents in Grey Lynn with a gift voucher to say thank you for their ongoing support during the fruit fly response.

KVH Chief Executive Barry O’Neil says support from the local community during the response was essential in achieving a successful outcome. “Without their cooperation over the last 10 months, eradication would have been far more difficult so we are very grateful for their ongoing assistance during a very inconvenient time for them”

The gift cards are redeemable at one of six retailers who were also affected by fruit and vegetable movement controls.
