Piano Free To A Good Home

A family friend, who will be moving house, has an upright piano which belonged to her grandfather.

his has been cared for over the years, only needs tuning and will be given away free. Also, it would have to be picked up from Glenfield.

Maybe a child who wants to learn the piano would appreciate it, or it could be found a home somewhere.

Warkworth Theatre Group will be promoting their upcoming production ‘Allo ‘Allo by Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft (same writers as the TV show of the 1980’s

Paul King and Chris Power are multi-instrumentalists and singers of Celtic/ Folk Roots based music and songs. They came together in late 2018 having played together in a Celtic session to form a nucleus that gives them the ability to form and control their own unique sound and performance. The diversity of their backgrounds, from classical to traditional folk playing and song writing in Chris’s case to Paul’s punk rock and prog influences is fused by folk. Sets could include anything from traditional flute, tin whistle or guitar tunes from Chris with Paul accompanying on either Bodhran or bass to modern classics from the from the likes of Frank Turner or the Saw Doctors led by Paul’s versatile and extraordinary singing range. Or maybe some original tunes and songs, even some in Gaelic – depending on the Craic!

New Arrangements for Anzac Day

A community decision will see a traditional Anzac commemoration go ahead this April 25 in Puhoi despite a police directive to postpone the annual event and encourage people to travel to memorial ceremonies in larger centres such as Warkworth, Wellsford and the Hibiscus Coast.

The rationale for the directive is the lack of enough police force members to patrol Anzac ceremonies in smaller centres in the face of possible threats to public safety following the events of March 15, when 50 Muslim worshipers were gunned down and killed at two Christchurch mosques.
Puhoi people have, however, expressed a wish to meet as has become traditional over the past few year at the settlement’s war memorial gates at the entrance to the Puhoi Pioneers Memorial Park.
The familiar format – a gathering at 9am (9.30am?) Reveille, Scouts, Fire Brigade members and other uniformed groups, a talk by a resident war history enthusiast and the laying of wreaths will be maintained, the major difference this year being that the organisers of the event will be the local fire brigade, not the Puhoi Heritage Museum Society, instituters and organisers of  previous commemorations.
The society will abide by the police directive not to hold a commemoration in Puhoi this year.
The annual display of war memorabilia and literature, plus an Anzac biscuits and refreshments gathering at the historic Puhoi Library will not be affected by these changes to the traditional routine, except for opening times – this year from 10am to 2pm.
Instead of the usual  morning tea in the community hall following the parade, the fire brigade will be hosting the refreshments following the traditional ceremony. People can easily find parking or walk to the centrally-located station.
“The decision to go ahead with the gathering was a community one,” says deputy fire chief Mike Donovan.
