What’s happening and what is being planned?

While the website is a record of events, if you want to keep up-to-date, sign up for the epānui which is sent out each month.

In January 2017 we had a wedding at the marae.

In February Te kura kaupapa Maori o te Rito from Ōtaki stayed for 3 days.

In March we hosted 60 Raukawa Whānau Ora staff for a 2 day hui.

In April we had a whānau hui.

August – Matua Whatarangi is convening an Iwi hui to discuss our Treaty Claims

5-6th August Rangatahi Hui organised by Kimo Winiata and Pataka Moore. The goal is to engage rangatahi and whānau in a discussion about Treaty claims – in an exciting way. Come along. Bring your sleeping bag.

18th -19th November – Working bee including setting a hangi at the marae

We will have a hapū hui on 17th and 18th March 2018 (40 years since the Meeting House was opened). Book the weekend to come to the marae and hear from those who were present at the opening. We also plan to hold an AGM for Trustees (Sunday morning 11- 12.00)

Great news: In March  2017 Telford McKay completed re-roofing the whare tupuna. The roof was the same one that was nailed on in 1977. In 2015, the Dining Room and kitchen were re-roofed. All roofs have been replaced in 2015-2017. It’s great news for Ngāti Pareraukawa.

Your donation – we have a small number of whānau who are making a regular monthly koha to the marae – if you would like to do this for the next year or two, sign up for the epānui. We have been including the bank account details in there. We need your financial support to maintain the marae.

Marae Committee – we meet bi-monthly. All whānau are welcome. Meetings are 7.30 – 9.30 p.m. (Come and check that claim out!) We manage the day-t0-day running of the marae. It’s a nice way to stay in touch.

November Working Bee – yes we still need help with maintenance. We have been asked to name the date so those from afar can get annual leave to travel on Friday 17th November and Monday 20th November. Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November date are the dates for the next working bee. For those who want a brush up on how to prepare and cook a hangi, this will also be done over the November weekend.
