Each Tuesday morning for the last eight years, weather permitting, a plane has arrived from Greymouth carrying a doctor for our busy Medical Centre. The plane was provided free of all costs by the Gloriavale Community, and piloted initially by Gideon, then by Samuel or Zion -- all experienced pilots. We received probably the only flying doctor service in the country!

The flights have now ended, and you are invited to put your name to a letter of appreciation to Gloriavale, thanking them for the wonderful service they provided.

Forms are available at the Info Centre, the Four Square, the Medical Centre, and the Little Wanganui Hotel, and you are invited to add yourname and signature to the letter.
