Santa needs some helpers


Tamahere Market organisers are looking ahead – to this Saturday’s monthly market, and to the end-of-year Christmas Festival.

“A new vendor is bringing smoked mussels from Thames to Saturday’s market and we want to put on a good show for them so we are hoping for fine weather,” says market organiser Jane Manson.

Also looking for some fresh muscle is the 27-year-old Tamahere Christmas Festival; so a meeting is planned for Thursday, July 24 to canvas interest.

People keen on crafts, needlework or other ways to be involved in the signature, month-long, fundraising event are invited to the meeting at 7pm in St Stephen’s Church hall.

Anyone interested in contributing but unable to make the meeting can email Bev Greene, or St Stephen’s Church at or phone the church on 07 856 2937.

Meanwhile, the art and crafts making a return to Saturday’s market include the original and one of a kind Bee Hive art creations, and photography of local and New Zealand-wide scenes by John Fitzgerald.
