13th Jan - Whaingaroa Market this Sunday
First market of the year will be held Sunday 13th January 9am – 2pm. Look forward to seeing you there!
19th Jan - Pukemokemoke working days
Sorry to hear that Pukemokemoke has experienced some vandalism in December. The more visitors that go there the less there will be! Rain and warmth have meant weeds growing so go along, have a picnic and release a few trees. (Contact Alan below)
Next two regular working bees are on the afternoons of Saturday 19th Jan and 16th February.
On Sunday 17th Feb we plan to hold another BBQ and a bat detection evening, from 5pm to 8pm. This is a time to celebrate our achievements and award the Volunteer of the Year; a time for the whole family to have fun in the outdoors. If wet, we will shift the event to the following Sunday 24th Feb.
