Puketapu Radio presents Blueskin Bay local news in association with

The Waitati Open Orchard group is holding a village wander tomorrow afternoon. Starting at 1pm from the library, the wander will take in the library, school and riverside bank on Orokonui Rd. The plan is to talk about the trees there, their care and what other trees people might like planted in these areas. It’s a bit of a social occasion too, with a picnic planned for mid-afternoon. All welcome.

The first WEGgies Harvest Market is on Sunday week from 10.30am. It will be held at the Old Waitati Store on Harvey St. Sellers with locally produced items for sale are most welcome to have a stand. Buyers will be most especially welcome. Items for sale will include plants, preserves and produce, plus any other food items people care to bring along. If you have items you would care to donate to a WEGie fundraising stand, please bring them along to the market or drop them of at the Village Potager, corner Doctors Point Road and Foyle Street.

Dunedin North MP Pete Hodgson is holding his monthly clinic in Waitati on Monday. He meets constituents at the Blueskin Library at 2.30.

Locals are back at the movies on Tuesday night when the Waitati Film Society gets back in action after the summer break. First up is the Swedish movie As It Is In Heaven, when a world-famous conductor returns to his childhood village in search of peace and quiet. He takes up the role of local choir master which sets in motion an interesting chain of events. Movies are shown at Bill’s place on Orokonui Rd from 8pm.
