Ping Pong

Just sounding out who’d be interested in starting a table tennis evening, say once a week in the Hall or other suitable venue. A lot cleaner than walking, hopefully less sweaty than tennis and less injury prone than those funny games involving running up and down outside and grunting at each other with big balls. Good for your cognitive whatsits too according to recent studies by study people. Steve Rowsell is offering one table and hopefully we could source some more… RSVP (no commitment – just getting some numbers)

Heli Spraying Along Motorway Works

Dear Neighbour,

API will be Heli spraying 150 acres of regenerated Native Bush along the NX2 Designation Boundary starting next week, lasting  for 6-8 days. This work is very weather dependant and dates may change.

The operation will be targeting weeds; Pampas grass, Wooley nightshade, black berry and gorse and one area of wild ginger. This is an API Forest operation but they will be flying along and over the NX2 alignment during the spray works. The helicopter will be operating at low altitude and needs clear air space, please do not fly any drones during this time.

If you  have any queries please contact API directly.

Ngā mihi

Movember Running Out

To send off Movember I have decided to run from Tahekaroa to the Puhoi Pub, which is 10kms give or take a few metres. Its got some pretty steep ups and downs and so I am leaving plenty of time!
Join me at the bus stop at 10am Sunday Morning at the bottom of Krippner Rd if you want to run, or meet me at the market at around 11 and we can talk all things Mo once I get my breath back.
A great chance make some donations if you’ve not done so!
10am any game runners meet me at the Tahekaroa end of Krippner
11am meet at Puhoi Market/Pub

Puhoi Beer

Scott Rice ready to do the decent thing and try out the latest batch

Puhoi’s a pretty good village, and so the team at Puhoi Beer thought a pretty good village really deserved a pretty good beer. And just quietly, it’s not bad at all.

The first beer from Puhoi Beer team is called Puhoi Pils – a kiwi version of the classic Czech pilsner. Inspired by the original Bohemian settlers of Puhoi, Puhoi Pils is a drinkable lager with a bunch of character.

If they were trying to impress you they might crap on about Puhoi Pils being a mix of NZ and classic Czech noble hops that provide floral, citrusy, and spicy flavours on a light malt base with subtle bready and toasty characters. But they wouldn’t want to beer-bore you so they’d just say it’s bloody tasty.

‘ Be rude not to…

Puhoi Pils also goes well with sunshine, tall tales, good yarns, and fish ‘n’ chips wrapped in newspaper. Your first one tastes pretty good, and the second’s not bad either.

Only the finest of establishments are chosen to lovingly pour Puhoi Pils. So far that’s the Puhoi Pub, the Puhoi Sports Club and a few others. But keep your eyes peeled

Puhoi Road Closures

[Via NX2]
The full list of upcoming works is at Latest Road Closures For Motorway Related Works Update for Puhoi

Our structures team will be installing concrete barriers and service ducting on the Arawhiti ki Pūhoi viaduct across Pūhoi Road. For safety reasons and to minimise disruption to motorists the work will be completed at night. A small section of Pūhoi Road will be closed for five nights, from Sunday 29 November to Thursday 03 December, between 9:30pm to 4:00am. Signposted detours and traffic management will be in place. Please note the dates are weather dependent and may be postponed if necessary.

During the Pūhoi Road closure, signposted detours will be in place. As the detours will add a considerable amount of time to your journey, we encourage you to plan your travel for outside the closure hours, where possible.

On Tuesday 24 November and Wednesday 25 November traffic managementwill be in place on Pūhoi Road intermittently between 9am and 3pm, while the trucks delivering the precast concrete barriers are turning into Pūhoi Road and unloading on site. There will be up to four deliveries per day.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during the closure and thank you for your understanding while we complete this important work.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
