DOES THE KAPITI OBSERVER CARE ABOUT KAPITI ??

Alan from Paraparaumu

Very frustrated this afternoon, to find out an event I am trying to promote in the "What's On" Column (Chess on the Blue Train), gets no mention. I appreciate space is limited and the editor has the final say, but when 9 out of 12 in the column are promoting events outside Kapiti,(7 in the Hutt Valley, including the Upper Hutt Chess Club!!) I am starting to wonder where their allegiances lie!!

While Covid killed some of Wairarapa’s biggest mid-year events, the calendar has quickly filled up with a dynamic range of activities post lockdown.

Carterton’s shimmering events centre is hosting three music gigs this month alone.

These include: The Boss - Bruce Springsteen Tribute show scheduled for this weekend (August 15), Steve Carlin’s Frank Sinatra Tribute with the Rodger Fox Band (August 21) the following weekend and Kiwi music legend Dave Dobbyn at the end of the month (August 27).
