This popular annual event is being held again on Saturday 23 January 2021, from 10am to 4pm and run by Mana Lions.
Enjoy the very best of locally-made crafts, artisan food, and refreshments in a lovely rural setting at the Eat Drink and Be Crafty Fair. There will also be a live band and plenty of entertainment for all ages – it’s sure to be a great family day out everyone.
Cell phone coverage in the area of Battle Hill is patchy which in turn means coverage for Eftpos machines can be a problem. In the past, cash has proved to be the most reliable means for transactions. There will be a limited Eftpos facility on the day supplying cash.

The proceeds from the day will support Wellington Free Ambulance and local Porirua Community Charities.

Where: Greater Wellington’s Battle Hill Farm Forest Park, 608 Paekakariki Hill Road, Porirua, Wellington

Admission: Gold coin donation

Razor blades in the walls....

Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

Heroic rescuer saves children from drowning

Two children, and their heroic rescuer, were moments away from drowning, after being dragged out to sea in a notorious rip at Porirua's Tītahi Bay.
After recognising the children were being “sucked out”, unable to repel the rip’s overwhelming strength, Mark McAdams didn't hesitate to "strip down" to his underwear and brave the treacherous waters to save the siblings, thought to be aged around 7 and 9, on Monday afternoon.
“My mission was to save the kids, but once I got a hold of them, I knew I was in trouble as well. If two surfers weren’t close by to call over, we were gone. All three of us were gone,” McAdams said.
The Porirua City Council will discuss whether a flotation device can be installed at the north end of Tītahi Bay, following the near-drowning.
“We recognise the near-drowning at Tītahi Bay this week was not what we want to see at a beach in Porirua, and we will be talking to the right people about how it can be made safer for swimmers and other users,” a council spokesman said.
