The Ahuroa Hall committee would like to invite everyone along to a Hamburger and Movie night at the Hall – next Saturday 14th May. Doors open from 5pm – everyone helps themselves to a burger, then we grab some popcorn and settle down for the movie around 6:30/7pm. Feel free to bring pillows or bean bags. It’s a cheap night out at only $5 per burger, but please make sure you RSVP!

As you may be aware, over the weekend the Ahuroa Hall Advisory Committee and Ahuroa School ran a very successful two day, fully catered horse trek around the Ahuroa Hills. Together, as a community, we have raised a significant amount of money for Ahuroa School and Hall, (approximately $8000) and we should be very proud!
As usual, it didn’t come together without a bit of blood, sweat and tears and there are a number of people in this wonderful little community who need recognizing.
Firstly, thank you to all the farmers and landowners who allowed us to ride over their properties, moved their stock , or left gates open to make it easier for us. It would not have been possible without the generosity of these people and families.
Thank you to Nicky and Dan Berger who opened up their home and farm as hosts of the trek, and, what wonderful hosts they were. Nicky coordinated a wonderful team of community members to cater four meals for the trekkers which was hailed as a great success. Dan worked tirelessly in the background as well, doing the lamb on the spit, organising landowner permissions, fixing water troughs for the grazing horses and so on.
Thank you to Rachel Jenks as well for her efforts to make this a success for our community – she helped promote and advertise the trek as well as bringing together two days of trekking over gorgeous country and amazing views! You led a great trek Rachel, thank you!
Thank you to Karyn and Sue ( and their family) , they were also wonderful hosts for Sundays lunch and contributed a lot of their time to make sure things ran smoothly, such as getting the horses drinking water to treacherous places and making sure road crossings went safely!
There was a number of parents and community members who gave up all or part of their weekend for this event. I’m not going to mention specific names, because I’m too scared I might miss one, but we are SO grateful to all these individuals and families, they were fantastic at getting stuff done and we had lots of fun to boot! Thanks Team!
Thank you to all the parents and community members who contributed their time and energy by providing a beautiful array of salads and baking to the trek, and boy, were they well received by the trekkers 🙂
We also received generous cash donations which helped pay for the food or portaloo costs – we greatly appreciate all those who contributed in this way as well. A special mention to Steven Laws who is giving us an amazing contribution of $400, simply because he wanted to support a great family event.
New World Warkworth also sponsored some of the catering costs of the trek – so lets make sure we support them too!
Finally, but specifically, I need to thank the Ahuroa Hall Advisory committee and school Board/PTFA members who were huge at making this event a success – a great team to work with!
Bring on Ahuroa Trek 2021!
