We need more support from the businesses and local residents for Heritage events.  There are so many community minded volunteers trying their best to promote our town.  Play your part.

Heritage Week was a great success for the Treasury and community.  There was so much to see and do.  It was great to see so many out and about.  We had people from out of town visiting too.  Totally Thames helped with the success of the week with helping in the Heritage Day stalls and the Fashion Extravaganza Trends of the Past and Present.  Another successful SOLD OUT! show.  For photos www.totallythames.co.nz

Totally Thames have brought the Thames Trolley Derby back from the moth balls of ten years.  A great day was had with twenty five entries.  We thank the Sponsorship of John Davy Tyres and support of the Thames Round Table and Thames Scout Club in making this another successful event.  Now is the time to work on your trolley for next year.  For details and requirements www.totallythames.co.nz

Great News for Solar (1):

Siemens and Semprius double photovoltaic effiency.

Great news for Solar (2):

using salt to capture and store energy

Peak Oil again in news - Nature magazine article. follow link: Co-author David King is former science advisor to UK government. 

The idea of ‘peak oil’ — that global production will reach a peak and then decline — has been around for decades.  The true volume of proven global reserves is clouded by secrecy; forecasts by state oil companies are not audited and seem to be exaggerated. The notion that oil is produced by the earth - abiogenic oil - is largely discredited.


Should we be concerned about the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA)? Click link for news.

If these secret negotiations succeed [the only documents in the public domain have been leaked] they will create a mega-treaty across nine or more countries that puts a straightjacket on the policies and laws our government can adopt for the next century and give massive new powers to corporations.

Thames residents may be sitting on a gold mine

There is an application to prospect for gold underneath the town pending approval.

The application by Zedex Gold [application 53981 - purple on map] was lodged with the Ministry of Economic Development on October 4th 2011.
