Passing On The Arty Baton

Is anyone in the village interested in organizing the Art Show this year? Jenny and I have done the bulk of the admin work for last few years, but it would be nice to hand it on to someone else in the village with an arty bent. There a lots of people around who help out, and it’s currently penciled in to run in the hall at the end of November…if interested please email me or ph.4220478

Snail on Road

Hi all,

I am “expecting” a relocatable house to be transported to our land in Ahuroa Valley Rd, Thursday [postponed from Wednesday] night. This may cause some disruption/holdups for early workers especially those who travel over the glorious hill in between Ahuroa and Puhoi, the house movers have told me they are meant to be off the road by 5.00am, but i have heard, and am beginning to discover myself, that house movers aren’t particularly reliable or timely. So as a heads up, they may be on the roads later than 5.00am . This move has been scheduled for the last five weeks and they keep pushing it back, i didn’t want to post until I had a definite date, and i have just had a call from them saying tomorrow or the next night. I hope this doesn’t cause too much disruption for anyone, and i hope i’m not writing the same message in two weeks time.

Please if anyone needs to ask anything, post here or call me 02108184709

Pussy Needs a New Home

I have a 3yr old spayed cat that needs re housing, in other words free to a good home. Bonnie has been bred on a farm and has been used to living outside on a lifestyle block. She is a great mouse catcher. I can be contacted on cell 0274 960475 or by text.
