City Care's induction and orientation processes ensure that all their staff and contractors assigned to our campus are aware of how to operate in a hospital environment. This means that any work area is appropriately contained to manage infection control, dust and noise issues within Nurse Maude's requirements. When we need City Care to respond quickly, they put the right amount of resources in to get the job done. City Care personnal and their contractors work well with our staff. They fit their work around our operational needs and ensure that our clinical environment is not compromised.
It is our pleasure to yet again place on record our appreciation to Sam Goodwin for the high standard of work he continues to produce on our wickets at Ken Maunder Park. He clearly takes a pride in his work and we want him to know that we appreciate the time and effort he puts into making our home ground a venue where conditions are conducive to good cricket being played. The same should also be said of Peter Watkins who obviously takes a pride in his work when cutting the outfield.
Sam is without doubt a committed and skilled groundsman and we regard ourselves as fortunate indeed to have him working on our wickets. He has the respect of our players not only for his expertise but also for the interest he takes in the club.
Please convey these sentiments to those concerned and we look forward to another good season in 2016-17.

GirlGuiding New Zealand would like to extend our huge thanks to City Care for your sponsorship of the recent CPIT workshops for over 300 girls aged 12-13 attending our Jamboree [Christchurch, January 2016].
The girls were given the choice to attend one of four workshops which focused on engineering and architecture, science, ICT and sports science. The programme was designed to give an insight into career options that do not traditionally have a high percentage of women in the workforce. We appreciate that overlooking such social traditions and encouraging young women to achieve their dreams is something City Care strongly supports alongside our organisation.
These sessions were a huge success and one of the many highlights of the Jamboree programme. Thank you once again for making a difference to the lives of these young girls, broadening their knowledge and inspiring them to achieve their dreams!
Marketing & Sponsorship Manager, GirlGuiding New Zealand
On behalf of the people of the Manawatu District, thanks to you and your team for the assistance you have and are still giving to our district.

I would like to offer my thanks on behalf of Tauranga City Council for the swift and professional response of your staff in the aftermath of the unexpected Tornado last week. The residents and businesses in the affected areas of Mount Maunganui were significantly disrupted. Your teams' hard work towards the restoration of clear streets and a safe environment for the community was greatly appreciated.
Chief Executive, Tauranga City Council
Now the waters have receded and before I get bogged down in the frenzy of the coming week, I wanted to take a moment and personally thank every one of you that have been involved in the flood response and relief efforts. Our staff and contractors have been exceptionally committed to giving the best possible service in extremely difficult conditions, especially those that have been personally affected by flooding.
It has been a very challenging week and I feel very privileged to be part of such a strong and professional team of capable and dedicated individuals.
Group Manager Water & Waste, Dunedin City Council
It was just like a waterfall at the back of my house ... it was horrible, and I had to carry my dog [Kaya] around. Emergency response staff from the New Plymouth District Council and City Care went above and beyond the call of duty and relentlessly tried to find somewhere where I could stay and keep Kaya with me. I can't thank them enough.
I would like to let you know that the garden work at the City Mission is going really well and your team are doing a fantastic job. The roses and the garden in general is looking really neat and tidy.
Please pass on our sincere thanks to them for doing such a great job, people are commenting on how nice the garden is looking.
Manager Property and Retail, Christchurch City Mission
Just a quick note to say thank you to your team for their assistance last Thursday night and for the balance of Easter Weekend. The weather was much worse than expected and your team did a fine job protecting residents' properties where possible.
Because your team does their work in the wet, the cold and the dark - others (myself included) can enjoy a relatively quiet long weekend.
You have a good team. Their efforts on behalf of the residents of Christchurch are much appreciated.
Operations Manager Transport & Greenspace, Christchurch City Council
Together we have developed two very successful Skills for Industry programmes that have resulted in many people commencing long term rewarding careers. These programmes have seen over 150 [previously unemployed] people go on to make a better life for themselves and their families.
Success has also come in a much broader sense in that we have taken the programme model that you helped develop and now use it across other pre-trade programmes that are being delivered throughout the country.
