I hope you enjoy a blast from the past.

Hey there Georgie Girl,
Are you going on a morning town ride
When the stars begin to fall with
Chilly Winds, Wild Ride and
Red Rubber Ball

The light from the lighthouse
Colours my life
Love is kind, and love is wine
Keep a dream in your pocket and
Whiskey in the jar repeating the words
We shall not be moved

When will good apples fall?
Some day, one day, even
If I had a hammer and
Five hundred miles
I'll never find another you
The Carnival is officially over so
To everything, turn, turn, turn

Apples in Havelock North

Hamish from Havelock North

I must say I do like the artwork ceramic or plastic apples in Havelock North.


Ohakune has its giant carrot, Cromwell assorted fruits and Te Puke a giant slice of kiwifruit, now Hawke’s Bay is home to its own giant apple – about 20 of them.

I must say I do like the artwork ceramic or plastic apples in Havelock North.


Ohakune has its giant carrot, Cromwell assorted fruits and Te Puke a giant slice of kiwifruit, now Hawke’s Bay is home to its own giant apple – about 20 of them.

The assorted one cubic metre apples feature in an upcoming art trail across Hastings’ city centre, showcasing the work of 20 local artists.

Organised by Arts Inc. Heretaunga, Studio Benega and the Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival, the idea for the Big Apple Project was first seeded about five years ago.

Inspired by Auckland’s Big Hoot art trail featuring owls, Brazilian-born artist Mauricio Benega​ wanted to bring something similar to Hastings, focussing on its reputation as the country’s biggest apple grower.

Boundary Trees

Nyla Neighbourly Lead from Akina

Just a heads up ... If you have trees/shrubs on the boundary, especially beside a footpath, keep the branches away from the path or over it ... on these wintery days its not nice to hit greenery with the head and get watered ... also be aware that flowering trees like camellias drop their flowers … View moreJust a heads up ...

Speed cushions to improve safety on Te Mata Peak Rd

New speed cushions to help improve safety on the upper part of Te Mata Peak Rd will start being installed from August 8, expected to take about four days to complete.

The safety measures are being introduced due to public concerns being raised with Hastings District Council about crashes and near-miss incidents on this increasingly busy road over a number of years.

The speed cushions are one of the actions identified as part of the development of the Te Mata Peak road corridor management plan to improve road user safety, and will be put in place on the 1.3km section of road from above the Peak House eatery to just below the summit.

They will be positioned along the road in areas where there is a mix of pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles or on long straights where there is a sense of “openness” for the motorist.

Te Mata Park Trust manager Emma Buttle says this stretch of the road has been a concern for some time, with park user safety a top priority for trustees.

‘’It’s great to see measures being taken to improve its safety.

“This road is getting busier, and it’s challenging to navigate. The high speed of some drivers is also very worrying, particularly with so many people walking and biking on there too.

“We always advise people to take care, and this will help serve as a reminder to drive slowly and carefully.”

While the work is scheduled to start on August 8, should there be any need for delay, such as weather, the start date will be postponed until August 15.

Signage will be in place ahead of time advising people of the upcoming works, including road closures above the Peak House eatery between 9:30am and 4pm on the days the work is taking place. Peak House will remain open to the public.
