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. 📚
Kia ora neighbours,
We're keen to hear from you about where you buy petrol/diesel and why.
In the run up to the long weekend families will be fueling up and heading to their favourite holiday spots, but who's making the most of their dollar at the pump?
If you'd like to talk about your petrol habits for a story, please email email@example.com or call her on 027-5931691.

Earlier in the year, a controversial statue of Captain Hamilton was removed from central Hamilton.
Now, the plan is to replace it with a sculpture of community leader Dame Hilda Ross, which has been in the works for several years.
Read more about when it will be unveiled here. Are there any other people you'd like to see statues of around Hamilton?
