Here’s a flyer with some basic messages that you might find helpful. We’re also putting some of these up around the Bay. Please feel welcome to forward it to any of our locals who might find it helpful. Kia kaha, Pukerua Bay!

Kia ora koutou katoa … and Happy New Year
As you know, the school has published a community newsletter for many years. This has now ceased, so a group of us from the Residents’ Association thought we would give it a go.
We have developed some initial ideas about format, size, and content, and the main purpose will be to celebrate our community and help bring people together. We know we have the Facebook groups and website, but this will be for everyone. Something that doesn’t require a digital connection and that you can stick on the fridge.
The theme for the first issue will be, “2020 was tough – how can Pukerua Bay work together to make 2021 amazing?”
We’re not asking for details – just one or two sentences with a brief response to that question. Maybe you’d like to invite people to join your group, or maybe there’s a big event planned? What would you like people to know about?
We’re looking forward to hearing from you about the exciting things you’ve planned!
Please send your responses to our group email at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday January 29.

In a few weeks, you’re going to be asked to help review our Village Plan. In the past, residents have always said that one of the things they love most about Pukerua Bay is our beautiful natural environment.
This issue of the Covid Courier looks at some of what makes our place so special and offers you a chance to be given a copy of one of Gay Hay’s beautiful books! It also looks at some of the supports available as we change lockdown levels.
- Kohekohe by Gillian Candler
- Nature in Pukerua Bay by Gay Hay
- We remembered on Anzac Day
- Coping with change – support within our village and from outside
Hot off the press — Pukerua Bay’s COVID Courier ANZAC Day special!
Pukerua Bay has a long association with servicemen. Some of the men were living in the Bay when they enlisted, but many of them were associated with the Bay through friends and family.
Local historian, Margaret Blair, tells their stories in this special issue of COVID Courier.
Plan for the 25th: Stand at Dawn
The RSA and New Zealand Defence Force would like us to remember those who gave their lives for our country. At 6:00 am on Saturday 25 April, stand at your letterbox and take a moment to remember our fallen – but please stay within your ‘bubble’.
