Whakatane Lions Club BerryTown Festival

Sadly, our BerryTown Festival usually on the 2nd Saturday in January each year, will not be held in 2020. Last year we had to cancel the Berry Queen Competition due to the lack of contestants.

Last year we had to cancel the Berry Queen Competition due to the lack of contestants. We continued with the 2019 Festival however, the Local Council with all the new rules and regulations and the reluctance to waive any expenses unlike many other businesses who did, saw us, for the first time make a loss. This means funding for worthy recipients and the youth in our area will be limited.
We regret having to make this decision, and hope in the future, we can reverse this situation.
Thank you all, both the public and business that have supported us for the many years during this event.

Hi neighbours - thousands of school kids will get a free lunch at school, Jacinda Ardern has announced.

Ardern says "children themselves told us during the consultation on the strategy that going to school hungry was a barrier to their learning."

Education spokeswoman Nikki Kaye says the Government hasn't considered that most schools don't have infrastructure for large scale food preparation and storage. She says "this would cost hundreds of millions and take away the autonomy of parents to provide lunch for their children".

What are your thoughts? Do you think this is a fantastic or flawed idea? Would you prefer that schools prepared your child's lunch?

Meet Sharlene Peri (Te Uri o Tai, Tainui) who shares “Studying at Awanuiārangi felt like being at home on my marae. It is welcoming, the facilities are exceptional (the library is incredible!) and it became a safe space to learn and grow.

I wanted a degree that would give me a relevant qualification with which to pursue whānau, hapū and iwi gains. From day one on the Humanities degree programme, I was blown away by the calibre, expertise and knowledge of the lecturers. I also appreciated having the flexibility of choosing a Major in policy or indigenous business”
