We’ll shortly be doing an update of our village guide sign – at the end of Saleyards Road, near the pub. Mike Pero have kindly sponsored a re-print of it, so if you run a business that you’d like visitors to the village to be able to find, make sure its on the map. If your business is on the old sign (see below) but no longer running please let me know too. firstname.lastname@example.org
…prove that you’re the smartest cookie in Puhoi if you’re not at the pub quiz on Thursday!
Get your team together and come down to the Pub on Thursday 20th June, 6:30 for 7:00pm start. Always great fun, and raises much needed funds for our local community. Come along and have a bit of a head-scratching laugh with your frindly neighbours.
NZTA has advised that the 80km/h (rather aspirational at the moment – Ed 😉 at the Puhoi/State Highway 1 intersection will now be given effect to on 20 December, together with the new 80km/h zones at each end of Kaukapakapa on SH 16.
Unfortunately Puhoi isn’t well served as a residential area. Services and facilities aren’t available that you might expect in a small rural town. This is due to its small population, terrain and history.
With pressure for increased development, we need to ensure the infrastructure is built in tandem. Below is a table showing, hopefully objectively, how Puhoi might compare with similar towns.
* At the time of writing, the single sealed road giving access from the village to SH1 is presenting considerable problems for the village. Increased traffic flows on the trunk road make it dangerous and difficult to merge onto from Puhoi. At holiday times many residents simply will not leave the village unless absolutely essential. Forthcoming works to build the new Northern Motorway extension are likely to exacerbate this in the medium term, and the new motorway offers no relief for the village unless traffic flows decrease significantly on the old road
A rare opportunity to own a boutique coffee roasting business with a customer base from Albany to Warkworth, currently operating as a part time business, approximately 10 hours per week, roasting coffee and supplying to a range of customers, both retail and wholesale.
It would suit someone:
• wishing to have a part-time hobby business, or
• wants to add to an existing coffee business such as a café or coffee van – cut out the middle men and roast your own coffee at a fraction of the cost, and with an additional revenue stream, or
• you may be that marketing person who is looking for a change.
