Happy Holidays Everyone!
The Ahuroa Community Hall and School are planning to run another horse trek over the fabulous Ahuroa Hills on February 23rd and 24th 2019.
We will trek over a number of beautiful Ahuroa farms with hills and bush and magnificent views that go for miles. We provide portable toilets, parking, overnight camping and horse grazing. Whole weekend or one day options available. It’s a wonderful way to get out and see our beautiful country, meet new people or reconnect with friends. We will meet at 9am for registration checks on both days and ride off afterwards.
On Saturday we provide a delicious catered lunch, plus a BBQ and spit for Dinner. On Sunday we provide a wonderful cooked breakfast and a lunch. All this provided by the wonderful families of Ahuroa.
All this for the reasonable price of $200 for the weekend ($120 for Saturday only/$80 for Sunday only). Kids under 16 years $100 for both days ($60 for saturday only/$40 Sunday only) and must be accompanied by an adult paying rider.
This was a great success last year for fundraising, for the riders and for those running the trek. So come and join in the fun, either as a rider or helping to organise it – the more we have to help the merrier!
For registrations or questions please email Joanna Bullock on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 021 116 7251. Christine Bullock is also available for questions on 027 514 9696 or 09 422 5598. Feel free to pass on the advert to riders outside of Ahuroa.

Rubbish collections are a day later than normal this week. So a normal Thursday pickup will be done on Friday.
Thanks and Happy New Year everyone!!
Marilyn has found a small female, black terrier cross wondering along West Coast Road, west of the old firestation, towards SH16. The dog is safe, it has been picked up, and is crated, it’s currently in Glorit.
If you know who’s this might be then please contact Marilyn by phone on 09-420 3022. – If you can’t get them by phone, then please leave a message and they’ll return your call later on this afternoon / early evening.
Marilyn will provide us with a photo later on this afternoon, and we’ll update the website, and facebook pages with a copy of the photo when we have it.
If anyone is missing a small, grey and white spaniel type bitch please call Jo on 021 273 0653. – She is very friendly but has no collar on.
Has anyone got a horse float close by – Martin Access Road, Ahuroa, that I could use for 1/2 a day to pick up my new horse this weekend.
I will pay the going rate and give a bond to be held until return. Would be so grateful.

We need people passionate about their children and the local school
We’re looking for authentic ideas to include everyone in the community
We need people that are resilient and can persevere in order to achieve the schools targets
Above all we need people that are happy to explore all options, be open to discussion and then drive the passion on to our FAIR, FEAST AND FIREWORKS!
WE NEED YOU!!!
Yes, we are doing a feast again – and an amazing community event that will be a good afternoons entertainment for the whole family. There will be huge involvement of the children this time – its THEIR school after all.
The basic ideas are in place, the basic team already exists – we know what work needs to be done BUT we need YOUR help! We need new ideas! Nothing is too small, or too inadequate. Everyone has something to add, something to give – it does not need to be large amounts of money. An hour volunteering costs nothing but time and could go so far to help the school.
Of course we need prizes, money to pay for items that we need to hire and goods to sell, make up or use as part of something bigger for the fair. Anything at all would be helpful at this stage.
We’re hoping to do a laser light display rather than the fireworks, because of all the livestock in our community. Do you know of anyone, who knows someone who could do this, or who we could contact with regards to a laser light show? We’d love to hear from you for any help, suggestions, donations or new ideas.
With the Summer holidays coming up we aren’t going to plague for all sorts of things right now, but would ask that if you have any ideas, or items that you think could be useful for the school to use keep our fair in mind. The new school year will roll round so quickly and we will be full on into the school, its events, its work and of course the fair.
Plant the seed now and by January we may have some real plans to move forward with.
Ahuroa Primary School has always been a community school – its been around for generations and many many of the residents in Puhoi and Ahuroa and surrounds will have attended the school in their day. Lets give a little back to the school and make this fair the best one yet!
Past pupils – we’d love to hear from you and what you could offer 😊
For now we’d like to wish you all a Merry and Blessed Festive Season and a Happy New Year.
Please make contact with email@example.com if you can help! – Thank you.

Interested in finally getting some alpacas to help keep your grass down? Due to serious overstocking we have a large selection of Alpacas available now.
We have some non breeding girls and some girls that we’d like to retire to good homes and in some cases we would let these girls go at no cost.
We have some pet quality boys that we will sell for the cost of having them desexed before sale only.
From there we have some unregistered breeding stock that will be priced to move quickly.
If you are interested in AANZ registered breeding stock we have 3 classes of girls for you to consider with varying prices.
We also have 3 quality stud males for sale if you’re looking to build your own breeding program. These boys have elite genetics and will be an absolute steal.
Additionally we have some elite champion males standing at stud, for any wishing to purchase girls and look to have them mated.
If you are interested please bear in mind that you must have at least 2 alpacas as they are a herd animal.
Please contact Chontelle on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0211900356 if you’re interested, we are located on West Coast Road and can arrange for viewing.
