Community Garden

We’d like to hear from people in the community interested in creating a community garden for the village. We have a spot over in the River Park where the old sheep pens used to be which would make a good location.


If there’s enough interest we’ll get a little group together and present a plan to the council (who I’m sure will be happy for us to do something with it so they don’t have to mow it 😉

High on A Hill Was A Lonely Goat(herd)

Hi, I’m Jumbo the goat. I recently lost my partner and I’m feeling a bit lonely. If anyone can help me find a friend I’d be so grateful as life in my field is a little bleak at the moment.

I enjoy climbing and outdoor, pursuits. I’m solvent and have my own, well stocked, home

Phone Sally Brown on 0210683721 if you can help me

The Sun Will Be Shining – Come Along and Support Your Village Market!

Got an overflow of stuff. Want to declutter for the new year? Book a spot for your car now.
Some great bargains found amongst car boot sales for the buyers.

Music this month is performed by ‘Otherwise Fine’ with Mark (guitar and vocals) and Cindy (fiddle and vocals) who live near Paparoa, while mandolin player and lead singer Brent hails from Tomorata.


We welcome Lauren Collins, a 21 year old singer-songwriter currently gigging around Auckland https://www.facebook.com/laurencollinsmusic/

Weeding Bee II – Turning Around The Arundo

We’re having another go at this as we didn’t manage to finish last week. Once again, please turn up and support your community! No particular skills required – just willingness to chain gang the cut stems back up to Keir’s amazing shredder on the river bank…

Come along and give us a hand removing the Arundo grass and other weeds overtaking the river bank along by the Sports Club. A combined Sports Club/Puhoi Community Forum effort – coz that’s how we roll in the Hoi!

Bring gloves, maybe a spade or whatever
