We Say, You Say: Paeroa Racecourse

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hauraki Herald

With a snip of the bolt cutters, the Paeroa community was welcomed back to their racecourse after an eight year absence.

The site was a purchased on November 3 by joint buyers the Wright Family Foundation, established by Wayne and Chloe Wright, and local developer Tim Bartells. Community leaders have made proposals for the site including a caravan park for the annual highland games, a twilight market or commerical and residential development.

What would you like done with the site?

Restaurant Month: Cheap menus courtesy of Auckland's top dining establishments

Mina Kerr-Lazenby Reporter from Community News

Hey neighbours,

Restaurant Month is back for another year, set to bolster the Auckland culinary scene by offering discounted dishes and unique events for the entire month of August.

Gastronomes can expect 31 days of specially curated menus at the value-for-money price points of $25, $40 or $55+.

Restaurants included span those from the waterfront to the CBD, and from stalwarts such as Euro, Botswana Butchery and Odettes​ Eatery, to the newcomers and the underdogs.

Viv Beck, Heart of the City chief executive, said this year’s lineup is “more world-class than ever” thanks to the “inspiring lineup of chefs”, some of whom have recently returned to Auckland from stints overseas.

For the full story, see below.
