Te Forum gets fresh look


By Pippa Stevenson

Tamahere Forum has been re-launched with a new, fresh look.

The community website that has been covering news and events in Tamahere for 12 years, since 2008, has undergone a makeover. How about taking a tour?

Here’s how to navigate the site at a click. The black on white tabs across the top of the website (on laptop or PC) or in the drop down menu (on mobile, shown by three lines) are your guide. News you need is corralled under Hot Topics, local events of note can be found in What’s On, while Our People, Our Patch and Our History speak for themselves.

Tamahere Forum is optimised for four different browsers and mobile devices
Tamahere Forum has a new look on laptop/PC
and on mobile devices

Everything you need to know about the popular country market, including contacts for stallholders, is under the Tamahere Market tab and the Directory A-Z has a comprehensive list of local cafes, accommodation, businesses, community facilities, services and more. If you’re not there and think you should be let us know.

Other points of interest on the site … and around the Tamahere community … can be found in the right hand column (laptop/PC) or by scrolling down (mobile). The About Tamahere section has everything from our area’s latest Statistics NZ’s census data to a gallop through two hundred years of local history, including the stories behind local road names and who is buried in the St Stephen’s church’s cemetery.

The Fast Guide to Tamahere will get you to all sorts of places – fast!

Other links let you explore the Tamahere Reserve or give you an opportunity to get your hands dirty at the Tamahere Plant Nursery.

Please, take a turn around the site and let us know what you think. A new-look can cause hiccups so if there is the odd broken link or other oddity we’d be pleased to hear about it. Comment below to let us know or click here to email editor Pippa Stevenson.

Our aim in this refresh has been to continue to keep Tamahere and our nearby patch as informed and a little entertained as ever. It was just time for a do over in the interests of keeping up with technology advances. Hopefully, you’ll still find everything you’ve always valued and little of what you haven’t.

Should you get lost on the tour the Home icon will always get you to our homepage.

If you’ve got news you’d like to share, events you want to tell locals about, have done something interesting or notable or know somebody local who has then tell us so we can let everyone else know.

Thanks for reading Tamahere Forum. If you’d like a weekly digest of stories emailed to you go to the subscription page and if you’d like to inquire about advertising click here.
