Reagan Remeka recently took some great drone footage of the village – shown here as a fisheye view. See if you can zoom in in your house…
For several years we’ve been having working bees to plant along the river in the Puhoi Pioneers Memorial Park. With the burst of spring weather this week a delicate drift of blossom has appeared along the bank. The council have mown a strip all along for us, so we now have a lovely new walking track from which to enjoy the park. This extends for about 1/2km from the left-hand gate, winding round past the Rosa Villa development on the opposite bank.
A sunny walk along the path is is such a pleasure now – thoroughly recommended to all! If we keep the track well trod it will keep the grass under control (we never know when we’ll be blessed with another mow!). Dogs are welcome on the track too (ignore the current signage, which refers to the paddock) – obviously with the usual clear-up and leash caveats.
We’d like to make a little picnic space in the area opposite the tearooms with the addition of a couple of picnic benches.
With this new track, and the much improved gravel on the steps of the loop track (starting behind the toilet block), our park is turning into a precious asset for the village. Other projects include the clearing of the old sheep pens and possible development of a community garden, a refurbishment of the old tennis pavilion near the horse area and the clearing of invasive Arundo reeds along the bank – plenty to get involved with, and new ideas always welcome!

NEXT MEETING The next meeting will be held on Tuesday 25th Sept at 7.30pm.
As part of a recent audit by Auckland Council of buildings in the River Park, a report was done on the sheds currently being used by the tenant for storing farm equipment and hay. They are not in very good condition and would require extensive (i.e. expensive) renovation to bring them up to a standard for use by the community. Puhoi Community Forum would like to canvas opinion locally on the value of the buildings and any suggestions as to possible uses and funding of renovation.
