The popular Monthly Car Boot Sales will continue (even though our Monthly Garage Sales have ended, after thirty years!) on the first Saturday every month, starting SATURDAY FEBRUARY 1st at Upper Hutt Baptist Church's Community Centre, corner Fergusson Drive and Milton Street - very visible location! Site fees $15 - phone 528-3454 to reserve a site. There might be an option of an indoor space when weather is inclement with table provided at a slightly higher cost - watch this space!
A low cost cafe will be open inside the Community Centre from 9am, serving percolated coffee or a pot of tea and a piece of cake for $4 - good value! We might even have live music playing in the background. Come and try it out and let us know what you think.
Need your help to recommend me someone who can help me with raising my fence line for privacy.
Am happy to provide the material required or you can provide me a quote.
The debate is on about which is NZ's second largest city - Christchurch or Wellington - and it all comes down to where you consider the border to be. So, if you live in the Hutt, Porirua, Kāpiti and Wairarapa, what do you say? Are you a Wellingtonian?
