This is a friendly reminder that your $150 annual HPRS levy is overdue. If you’ve paid already, well done you! But if not, now’s the time.

All owners received their levy invoice on November 5. Here are the details for online payments…

Bank: Westpac
Account name: HPRS Hobsonville Point Re
Bank account: 03-0162-0060655-000
Reference: Your unique reference number is on your invoice at the bottom left corner.

If you can’t find it, you can put your dwelling unit number in the reference box instead. That’s easy. It’s the first three letters of your street name, plus the number. So 1 Hobsonville Point Road would be HOB01.

Please do put one or the other in the reference box; if you leave it blank your $150 runs the risk of ending up in a hard-to-find corner of the Crockers account system.

Your $150 (that’s just $2.88 a week) goes to covering the cost of all sorts of local services, from streetscape maintenance tasks and security patrols and overseeing governance, to helping with the running of fun events like our mid-year Winterfest, the recent Diwali celebration and next Saturday’s Christmas market.

It goes to work in many ways for the good of all of us who call the Point home.
