Following discussions at the Community Forum, we’re proceeding with plans for an orchard/garden/leisure area in the River Park where we’ve cleared the old sheep pens. Dustyn has has produced a first-cut plan for discussion of what we might want to do.
This is by no means a final plan – in fact feedback and suggestions at the forum will already see a change to the location/size of the horse pens to give more space. A well supported suggestion from Roz Broadmore was that we build a Pentanque court – an achievable community project which could give the village a nice summer evening location for a glass of wine and a fun game … more suggestions welcome (obviously these have to be low/zero budget ideas that we can do as a community as there’s no funding for us from the Council)
Residents of Puhoi , you live in a small community and all of you are known by each other, your words and actions rebound around the community that I was once part off and still fondly remember.
I have quietly spoken in the past to a number of you over road safety matters .
It is with regret that a number of residents and workers in and around the village are increasing the risk posed to us all around the village with the speed passed the village store.
The MAXIMUM speed through the village is 50kmh, however when there is a school bus this is reduced to 20KMH around the bus. This is for safety reasons and the welfare of both parents and children at these busy times of the day.
You are also a reflection of this great nation to the many thousands of overseas visitors that make the village a destination from all over the world, your actions are watched by many and by the children you raise.
Your actions are a reflection of yourself in the community and a less than desirable reputation in a small village can last a long time.
With the speeds obtained recently and from observations by Police and locals a tragedy is in the making.
A community is just that and only survives due to the common purpose and values exhibited by all.
SLOW DOWN, LOOK FOR CHILDREN
Road user behaviour in and around the village is everyone’s responsibility , New Zealand Police value your assistance in this matter and will be readily assisting in the reduction of risk.

Take a look at this pamphlet and it will explain all!
The forum is really the only collective representation available for just the residents of Puhoi and the surrounding area. Although not a local government organization, it does have excellent connections with the Local Board and Council. If you want your voice heard in shaping what happens in the village it must be your first port of call! Please support us by coming along on Tuesday 25th. 7:30 at the Sports Club, for the AGM, or any of the monthly meetings ….
