New whakapakoko recognises Wakatū history and connections

Recently we unveiled two whakapakoko to recognise Wakatū history and connections to two significant sites for the whānau of Wakatū – Nayland College and Kaiteretere. Designed by Rangi Kipa, the two sculptures are part of the recognition of the 40th anniversary of Wakatū Incorporation.

Update on the Tasman and Nelson fires

We know that many of you are concerned about what has been happening with the Tasman and Nelson fires, and we thank everyone for their messages of aroha and support.

According to the latest update, weather conditions for the next few days remain benign with warm temperatures and light winds, ideal for fire fighters. However, the fire is not yet contained, and the situation could change very quickly.

CAMPING AT MĀRAHAU

As spring turns to summer I’m sure many of you are planning your summer holidays, so it’s timely to give a reminder about the process for Owners to apply to camp at Mārahau. It is a popular spot, so if you want to stay over Christmas/New Year, please make sure you apply for your permit by 10 December. This means that we can issue the permits by 20 December – just in time for Christmas!
