Tauranga’s Incubator Creative Hub unveils new campus

In the heart of Tauranga's creative landscape, what began as a small studio space has now blossomed into a vibrant and expansive creative hub thanks in part to lottery funding support from Te Puna Tahua Lottery Grants Board. The Incubator Creative Hub was established at The Historic Village in 2013, with an aim to provide studios and events, support for the creatives in the community, and to attract art groups.

Within a few years of opening, the founders of the Hub saw a huge appetite from the community – but the hub operated in a single room which could only accommodate a small group comfortably. Lotto New Zealand players through Local Grants have helped create the ‘Creative Community Campus’ - a new multi-room, indoor-outdoor haven established in a renovated pre-school building, adding a modern and versatile space.

The Hub now operates an umbrella of sixteen distinct creative entities including five galleries, a music venue, a whakairo hub, artist studios, a photography lab, designer clothing stores and a hip hop/R&B studio. With one hundred percent of Lotto New Zealand profits being returned to local communities, every time you play a Lotto New Zealand game, you’re a Kiwi helping organisations like The Incubator Creative Hub foster a strong, inclusive, and connected community.

One of the biggest events on the Porirua calendar is set down for 8 June this year: the Love Local Expo.

Te Rauparaha Arena will be bursting at the seams as vendors showcase the best that our city has to offer, from products and services, to crafts and community events.

There will be offerings including craft beer, cupcakes, jewellery, custom homewares, gyms and cheerleading, activities and exhibits.

Love Local began in 2020 as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic, giving Porirua businesses a boost coming out of lockdowns.

There are many ways to get to Te Rauparaha Arena for the expo – catch the train to Porirua and walk or e-scooter around the harbour path to the venue, catch a bus to stops on Norrie St and Lyttelton Ave, or park close by. Car parking might be difficult to get in the Arena car park on the day.

Love Local Expo, free entry, Saturday 8 June, 10am-4pm, Te Rauparaha Arena.

Mobile classrooms teach more than 200,000 tamariki annually across Aotearoa

Life Education Trust New Zealand has been a beacon of empowerment for Kiwi children and youth for over 35 years. Through innovative teaching programmes, this trust has touched the lives of tamariki and rangatahi across the country, helping them grow and thrive. Supported by funding from Te Puna Tahua Lottery Grants Board, through funds raised by Lotto New Zealand players, Life Education Trust's initiatives - including the renowned ‘Healthy Harold’ programme - have been instrumental in shaping the educational landscape in Aotearoa.

With mobile classrooms traversing the nation, Life Education Trust reaches over 200,000 tamariki every year, bringing quality education to various communities. The unique approach of using specialist educators and Harold the giraffe mascot creates a safe and engaging learning environment.

Life Education Trust is set to launch Harold's Studio this year. This new endeavour will leverage technology to deliver Healthy Harold lessons through online platforms, showcasing the trust's commitment to evolving and enhancing its educational offerings to meet the changing needs of tamariki.

One hundred percent of Lotto New Zealand’s profits go back to support thousands of great causes all over Aotearoa. So, every time you play any Lotto NZ game, it’s a win for our communities, and it’s a win for our tamariki.

I have found that if I am using the burner for even an hour I get this pale brown "bloom" which is almost impossible to remove. The pics show that I have got some off but that is using steelo and I can't get around the burner. Please, only give me something that does work, so I don't wreck the thing totally. I can't take my pans off half way through cooking and wipe around, it would be too hot. I'm desperate.
