Blueskin Bay radio news for Friday March 20


Puketapu Radio presents Blueskin Bay local news in association with


Last week’s second Waitati Harvest Market was judged a success by all who took part. Buyers could take their pick from native plants, hot house grapes, seasonal preserves, and even ducks. All products on sale came from local gardens or properties. The next harvest market will be held on April 18.


Art fans will be donning their glad rags and making their way to the Gallery on Blueskin tonight. It’s the opening of the solo exhibition by Sudhir Duppati, lecturer at Otago School of Art. Entitled Topography of Genesis, it is the first time the works have been seen here in New Zealand. They have previously been exhibited in New York and India. The opening begins at 6pm and everyone is welcome.


It’s toy time again, with the Waitati Toy Library open at the Waitati Hall tomorrow from 10.30am to 11.30m and again on Monday evening from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.  With the weather now turning autumnal, it’s the perfect time to be stocking up on toys to keep your children entertained in the cooler months ahead.

There will be a meeting on Tuesday night at Waitati to discuss the setting up of Neighbourhood Support groups in the Waikouaiti Coast Community Board area. To learn more and become involved, come to the Waitati Hall on Tuesday at 6pm for a shared meal followed by a meeting with Neighbourhood Support Regional Coordinator, Sarah Hexamer, and local agencies. The meeting is expected to end about 9pm.

Keeping memories alive is easy to do with all the technology at our fingertips, plus a bit of good old Kiwi ingenuity. A creative memories working is being held at the Warrington Hall on Thursday from 7pm to 9.30pm. All welcome.
