Our Christmas Lights Wonderland Fundraiser is on again this year Commencing December 5th. to January 6th. The opening evening will commence with entertainment from 7pm to 8.30pm when the lights will be switched on. This year we will be passing our donation on to 3 local families and one slightly out of the area. Although this year has been difficult for everyone we ask that you start putting aside from now until you visit, coins towards your donation, so that we have a real 'bounty' to devide between these well deserving families. (They have no idea that this is to happen). I am also asking if anyone has a spare hour or two I need to take out all the christmas houses and fairground in the Christmas cabin as we didn't have our Lights event last December, so they need checking, dusting down and re arranging to make room for 20 more. Ill thank you in advance. Most of you know us by now, phone number for a text 021 204 2633. or answer on here... One more thing does anyone have 3 tame sheep, a donkey and an alpaka. If you do pm me and I will explain. Thank you again. Keep safe everyone.
A big thanks to the community for the donations we have been receiving! They are very much appreciated and go towards doing great things in and for the community. We have some cool treasures in the shop so come on in and see.
I’ve been lucky to meet the people who do the jobs we raise money for this week and learn about all the important things the Red Cross does. Did you know that your donations help train 19 disaster relief teams, how cool is that! Of course I just hope we never need them BUT the thing to remember is that the Red Cross has your back and will be there when you do need them.
Another big thank you to my volunteers you are awesome and so appreciated and the glue that makes the shop rock! Morning tea is on me for the week!
An Auckland trucking company wishes to dump millions of cubic metres of industrial waste in a proposed site in Huntly, close to the only 'swimmable' lake left in the Waikato region. In 2012, a Waikato Regional Council scientist compared the nutrient levels in Waikato lakes to 1316 others globally and found them to be among the worst. This indicator has not shifted in the eight years since.
What do you think about the proposal?
