Keep Motueka Beautiful
The Committee is a part of the national body, Keep New Zealand Beautiful. The local councils of towns and cities become financial members of KNZB and committees are formed by local communities. Litter reduction and environmental beautification are two of the main focuses.
One of KMB's special interests is the construction of walkways to give access to beauty spots. Another is the litter cart operation used to help keep the Motueka CBD clear of litter.
The Committee was formed in 1988. It meets on the third Monday of each month from January until November at the TDC Service Rooms at Hickmott Place at 7.30 pm. Contact Keep Motueka Beautiful Committee by writing to Keep Motueka Beautiful Inc c/o PO Box 123 Motueka.
The Committee welcomes new members and/or people who wish to join in working bees.

Beautification of the Motueka environment is a key factor in Keep Motueka Beautiful Inc's projects. Apart from plantings and other beautification work, constructing walkways to enable the community to have good access to the wonders of the local scenery is ongoing.
