Horse trek 2018


A massive thank you to our community for their support of the Ahuroa Hall and School Horse Trek Fundraiser in the weekend.  It looks like we made about $8000 profit, which is a fantastic result, and we had a great time to boot.  Thanks to all the AMAZING community members, landowners, Mums, Dads, and Grandparents for their generous donations of time, money and food, and for embracing the ‘Fun’ part in Fun-draiser.  A special thanks to Rachael Jenks, the Berger and Bullock families, Shirley, Sue, Karen, and Curly, and Ahuroa Rural Fire Brigade for going the extra mile.

The food was raved about, the organisation and scenery highly praised, and it sounds like they want us to do another one next year – Yay!

Our sponsors for this event were:  New World Warkworth, Warkworth Party Hire, and Kennards Hire Silverdale – a huge thank you to them for their sponsorship of our local  community, and remember this sponsorship when making choices about where you buy your groceries, and when you need to hire something.

On that sponsorship note, please remember to support other local businesses that have donated generously to our community and school recently, such as Hutchinson Consulting Engineers,  and Shamrock Painters Ltd.

Recent Burglaries

Hi all

It appears that there were two shed burglaries overnight – one in Kaipara Flats, and one at Tauhoa, with motorbikes, chainsaw etc stolen. A great reminder to be vigilant about locking sheds, and also keeping an eye out for vehicles that don’t seem to fit. Police are happy if you ring and report a number plate, so don’t worry if you are being over cautious!

Puhoi Community Newsletter (Feb 2018)

Dear Puhoi people and all our friends from neighbouring areas,

My huge thanks to our sponsors, the team of Mike Pero, Puhoi, who, while I was asleep under my mosquito net, laid this out and organised its printing and distribution.

And to Jaqui Barrett, new village market manager, who provided some really lovely photographs.

May all our readers be blessed, especially as we recollect what has been happening while we were all sleeping to our people in other parts of New Zealand.

Not to mention our friends and contacts in the Pacific – I remember, especially friends of mine from Apia, Samoa, who have been flooded out.

From time to time people ask me to add their email address to my distribution list. Other people do not realise it even exists – please tell them about it and encourage them to ask to be put on the list.

With love and thanks to you all,
