And I am so excited to have them come into Rawhiti to entertain us. I hope you can join us in the Atrium for some morning tea and talent……….Friends and family most welcome.

When: Wednesday 16th Oct

Where: The Atrium

Time: 10 am

Making fun of their teachers saw a South Auckland school barbershop quartet take out top prize at this year's Stand Up, Stand Out competition. Aorere College's What the Fourth won the group's vocal section of the annual event, with entertaining observations about some of their teachers.

South Auckland schools dominated the winners' circle of the annual event, which gives young performers the chance to take the first steps down the path toward an entertaining career.

What the Fourth members were also part of the band Pocket-8 who came runners-up to Tangaroa College's C6 in the best band category while singer Andrew Faiai, competed in the solo instrumental category. This was won by Risnm Tangianau, the first ever competitor from a private training establishment, who stole the show playing guitar, drums and a loop pedal.

We invite you to join us on October 1st to hear from 'Sweet Azzz' Beehive Rental business owners Allan & Kay Parker.

Join us for an opportunity to hear from bee-keepers and honey-makers Allan and Kay Parker. It is currently 'Bee Aware Month' in New Zealand and what better way to 'bee' aware than to learn from local bee experts.

Our special guests will teach us about the importance of bees, what we can do to help them, and they will even have some local honey to taste and buy! Following their talk there will be a Q & A session with Allan and Kay and morning tea will be provided.

We would be delighted to see you at Rawhiti Estate, 14 Rangitoto Ave, Remuera on Tuesday 1 October, at 10.30am.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Megan.Lewis@thebegroup.co.nz by Friday 27 September.

Hello neighbours
AOK clothing are heading up our way again - if you would like to drop by and check out their absolutely beautiful range of clothing at their 'pop up shop' here at Rawhiti we would love to see you.

We specialise in quality fine Merino & Merino/Possum knitwear for men and women, plus linen and cotton blouses including Liberty of London.
OK’s mail order and online shopping facility is growing fast. Garments are now being sent off-shore to many cooler climates abroad as people internationally are becoming more aware of the qualities of Merino and Merino Possum. AOK is very grateful to its many quality loving, loyal customers who are helping the business forward by spreading the word and referring admirers.

Our garments are distinctive, spectacular and stand out, just as natures colours in this country do, and as the tides are ever changing so is our product; always moving forward in quality, comfort and style.
We will be in the Auckland area at this time and welcome visiting you all.

On the 18th September:
Join us at Rawhiti Estate in Remuera for a special brunch to support Sweet Louise – New Zealand’s only charity that supports those living with incurable breast cancer.

Rawhiti Estate is Remuera’s premium retirement living estate. As well as providing luxurious apartments and facilities for residents, Rawhiti Estate is also home to stunning New Zealand art which will you be able to enjoy on the day.

Hosted by Rawhiti Estate, with proceeds going to Sweet Louise, the brunch will feature a very special guest, Lauraine Jacobs MNZM. Lauraine is the New Zealand Listener food columnist, author of several cookbooks and is passionate about great food. She will serve up a tasty talk with some tales from her recent food travels in Ireland and France and share her insights into what’s current and hot on the New Zealand food scene and what we can expect to eat in the near future.

There will be spot prizes, a gorgeous raffle, the chance to meet and mingle as well as a delicious brunch served from 10am.

Tickets include automatic entry in the draw for one of three of Lauraine Jacobs’ cookbooks!
Tickets available at iticket online or call me!


On the 1st October:
In 2012 we came up with the idea that a beehive would be a great benefit to our garden, so after expressing this to someone, who two weeks later , found a bee swarm they needed removed. We rang a beekeeper to see how we were to go about collecting it….. Oh my, when we look back now to that night, we have come a long way.

We never planned to increase to the size we are now which has taken us to a sizeable hive rental business. Long story short, it just happened and we have only once gone looking for locations. From there we now have 25 locations / gardens/ schools in Auckland with over 50 hives.

In saying this, we are really loving working together , learning so much about our little & helping others to learn too, by watching, tasting, touching & listening to what we are continually learning ourselves.
Sweet Azzz Beehive Rentals
p.s - Yummy local honey for sale (cash only)

On the 16th October:
AOK clothing from Geraldine will be having a pop up shop in our atrium - beautiful possum/merino knitwear and Italian linen wears. 10.30 - 2pm.

On the 27th November:
Rawhiti's Christmas fair.....join us for bubbles, nibbles and shopping! List of stalls TBA watch this space.

I am always keen to try something new here at Rawhiti - so if you have a daytime book club looking for a venue or a club, playgroup or mothers group come and check out Rawhiti.

A very big thank you to our wonderful police dog section

Megan from Rawhiti Estate

We were lucky enough to have a demonstration from the NZ Police dog section yesterday. Officer Andrew Savage and his partner Arlo joined us to show off Arlos impressive skills.

Officer Andrew Savage and his partner Arlo joined us to show off Arlos impressive skills. Arlo is off to Wellington shortly to do the last three weeks of his training before graduating and hitting the streets of Auckland. Arlo is 2 1/2 and weighs in at over 40kg.....not something you would want to mess with! The focus on his handler was amazing (which is a good thing!) they ran through obedience and bite training. Lots of questions were answered.....a few curly ones as well! Thank you so much to the NZ Police for sharing Arlo with us.

Enjoying the sun at Muriwai!

Rawhiti Estate

We enjoyed a lovely sunny day trip to Muriwai last week. There’s nothing quite like our West Coast beaches in the winter sunshine. Most of the gannets migrate to Australia for the winter (and some of us wish we could join them!) but we had a great walk along the beach. Every week we have a range … View moreWe enjoyed a lovely sunny day trip to Muriwai last week. There’s nothing quite like our West Coast beaches in the winter sunshine.
