Blueskin Bay radio news for Friday March 12

Puketapu Radio presents Blueskin Bay local news in association with

Blueskin Bay Youth Group meets tonight at the Waitati Hall, and every alternate Friday throughout the year. Activities include table tennis, badminton, basketball, videos and music. The entry fee is $2.

If you’re in town at Mitre 10 on Saturday, make sure you support the Blueskin Playcentre’s sausage sizzle. Saturday is also the final day of the Warrington Surf Club beach patrols.

Local MP Pete Hodgson holds his monthly clinic at the Blueskin Library on Monday at 2.30pm. He is happy to hear and discuss the concerns of local residents.

It’s film night on Tuesday and the feature is the Canadian movie My Winnipeg. Described as intensely idiosyncratic and hilariously unreliable, it takes viewers into a cross section of local lives. The Waitati Film Society meets at Bill’s Place on Orokonui Rd at 8pm on alternate Tuesdays.

A Lenten study group is being held on Wednesday nights this month, at St Barnabas Church Hall in Warrington. This dynamic exploration of the Gospel stories uses bibliodrama, visualization and art.

And next Thursday night the Waitati Open Orchards group meets at the Waitati Hall at 7.30pm. Up for discussion will be suggestions for using a recent funding grant received by the Waitati Edible Gardeners, or WEGies, and administered by the Blueskin Community Resilience Trust.
