The alert level two rules have changed for delta

Kia ora e te whānau o Pukerua.  The alert levels have changed – yeeha!  What does Level 2  mean for us? As you know, the headlines are about wearing face coverings, keeping track of where you’ve been, and practising basic good hygiene. This short article breaks it down further:

Please be mindful during lambing season

A request from Carrad’s farm, to please keep off the farm during lambing season until December. Walkers and bikers can disturb the sheep which can sometimes result in lambs being abandoned, especially by the younger ewes. This includes all farm access from Rawhiti Road, Kapekape Place, and Raroa Place. Please respect this request; we are allowed access to the private farm at the discretion of the owners.

Paint our lovely Chorus cabinet!

Kia ora Pukerua Bay, calling all our talented local artists!

Chorus is asking for artists to come up with designs to transform cabinets in Porirua with art, and have extended their deadline for submission to 5pm on 17 September. We have a Chorus box in Pukerua Bay that can really do with a face lift (pictured) on the junction of Wairaka Road and Rawhiti Road, so if you are feeling inspired and want to share your vision with the rest of our community, please enter!
