Dave Sutherland, a teacher from Porirua College, introduced the Pest Free Porirua campaign to the group. He demonstrated the use of the cage trap that has been developed to catch both mice and rats. Dave was an excellent speaker and a number of members purchased a trap, to do their bit to help keep their communities pest free. There were lots of entries in our competitions and the usual well stocked sales table.
