Update from Whakatū

Kia ora koutou

Ahakoa iti, he pounamu!

This whakataukī literally translates as “although small, it is a greenstone”.

Here in Whakatū, this whakataukī describes us as individuals and as a collective.  At this point in time:

1) We are small in members;

2) We haven’t quite established a committed steering rōpū, and

3) The wider Whakatū community have heard little about Te Kete Pounamu thus far.  However, our collective thoughts and intentions individually and collectively through Te Kete Pounamu is where the value or the treasure is!!

We are looking forward to our first kanohi ki te kanohi hui to be held 30 June 2020, 10.30 am to 12.30 pm at Victory Community Centre.  Nau mai, haere mai!

Ngā manaakitanga o te runga rawa – blessings to you all!
