Dear Puhoi residents and friends of our community,

This month’s market, on April 30, from 9am to 1pm in the Sports Club grounds, is traditionally dedicated to a celebration of all the varying nationalities and ethnicities which compose modern Puhoi.

But Bohemian Kiwis and Brits are not the only Puhoians whose homelands of origin we celebrate this Sunday. A quick look around our community shows residents of Japanese, Pasifika, Maori, Australian. Canadian, Danish, Italian, German, Dutch, American, Hungarian, Chinese, Indian,Scotch, Welsh, Irish, Icelandic and Spanish connections. And this is probably just a start……

We hope you will continue the tradition by wearing a national costume or a flag or handing out some cultural cuisine to sample.

The entertainment programme commences at 10am with Sue’s Indian cooking demonstration – egg curry – at 10am, a Puhoi Bohemian Dancers performance at 11am, the Puhoi Celtic Sessions musicians play at 11.30am and then we all join in for a British Sea Shanty singalong at midday.
