A bumper community market is planned for Sunday, 5 April, Easter Sunday at Te Horo Hall, 10.00am to 12.30pm. As well as fresh, seasonal produce, plants and seedlings, locally produced olive oil and preserves, plus a range of handcrafts and jewellery, there will be additional stalls to celebrate the season and live music — it’s a great opportunity to support local producers and craftspeople.

If you would like to support your community by serving on the committee of the heritage Te Horo Hall, then come along to their AGM on 15 June at the hall, 7.30pm.

“A number of long-standing members will be stepping down and we need to replace them,” said hall spokesperson, Sharon Hurst.

Ms Hurst said it was a good idea, if you are interested in being part of the committee, to make yourself known to an existing committee member ahead of time, “and get support for your nomination.”

Meet at Te Horo Hall, Wednesday, 8 April, 10.00am onwards. A monthly meeting of local crafty people — no membership required, just bring along whatever craft you’re working on and chat with like-minded people.

Regular Swiss ball classes at Te Horo Hall, Tuesday 9.15am to 10.15am — contact teacher, Carola, 021 0606094 for details.

A monthly catch-up with your neighbours and to meet and greet newcomers to Te Horo — 5.30pm at Te Horo Hall, Friday 3 April — bring a plate of nibbles to share and your favourite wine/drink.
