Puhoi Hotel Happenings

There are 10 places remaining for the July 24 Puhoi Women’s Dinner, with a gratifying number of new additions to the list wanting to try Gillian Seymour’s mixed curries, as well as old hands. And remember the second round of the 2014 series of Trivial Pursuits on July 17 in the hotel bar. And Saturday, July 26 will see an end-of-game-season pot luck dinner at the hotel. Bring a dish to share and arrive at the hotel by 6.30pm ready for a 7pm dinner start.

Thanks for the Scrap

Thank you to the community for your donations of scrap steel. We made $97. Please only drop scrap steel though, we don’t get anything for the bags with rubbish that were placed there. If you have more scrap steel lying around, feel free to continue to drop off at Puhoi River Motors yard, on the left as you go through the gate. Thanks for your ongoing support.

Remember to ring 111

if there is something you think the fire service or any other service should be attending. Please do not ring the brigade members. This way, if the fire call taker needs specific details, you can give them what they need for an appropriate and immediate response.We are recruiting; if you are over 16 years of age, live locally in Puhoi and have a can -do attitude we are interested in hearing from you. We will supply all the training, uniform and support you need. Contact – Rob Beardmore 021891996 “ Chris Farac, Puhoi Rural Fire Force (thanks, as always, for your monthly report, Chris, ed)
