Hey Waikato👋 The annual Red Cross Book Fair that was set to take place on the first weekend of September at the Te Rapa Racecourse, will now be taking place on the 5-7 March next year.
In the meantime, we are looking to host a Pop-Up Bookfair in November - more details to be posted here in the coming weeks.
We are still taking book donations during this time up until the event. If you’re planning on a spring clean once the winter blues are over, you can donate your books that are gathering dust by dropping them off to our Hamilton Service Centre on Te Rapa Road.
We look forward to seeing all your wonderful faces and in the meantime keep an eye on our social channels for more updates. 📚
Hello, I'm Bjorn.
I'm a registered beekeeper who loves re-homing swarms.
I am experienced at this so please let me know if you see a bee swarm this season, I can come and carefully re-home them for you.
I enjoy doing it so I do not charge to take away unwanted bees.
Please call or text me 0212282530
It was a very nice touch to see a lonely David Bennett by himself waving a placard at the Boundary Road bridge which was thanking his supporters with a big smile and a friendly wave. He may have lost his electoral seat last weekend but has been generous in saying thank you for the support given to him at this time. This was nice to see.
