A back door key has gone missing from within the key safe – possibly fallen out after being removed from the code pad/safe lid. Please do not remove the key from the code pad to open the door. Simply punch in the code, open the safe, use the key to open the door (with key still attached to the pad). Replace the code pad/lid with the key attached, back onto the safe.
Same for the pottery shed door. Thank you.

Running Wild Children’s holiday program
Mudder’s program on the mudflats in front of MIAC last Thursday was an absolute hoot for the kids, and fun for us to watch. They slid and slipped, rolled and ran through obstacles until completely covered in mud….. then proceeded back to our rear hose and shivered and shook while being hosed off. Great, healthy, old fashioned fun for sure.
