Devonport in March

The beautiful weather continues as do our Raumati/Summer Fun Tamariki (0-5) Play mornings and Kids' Athletics Series.

Raumati/Summer Fun Tamariki (0-5) Play mornings are held on Tuesdays at Windsor Reserve, Devonport and on Thursdays at The Rose Gardens, Belmont. At both locations, sessions start at 9:30am and finish at 11:30am. Attendance is casual and caregiver supervision is required. Sessions are also weather dependent.

The health and safety of our attendees and staff is our top priority and our events are Covid safe. Participants aged 12+ are required to show their vaccine passes before entering the event area and we remind participants to please scan the contact tracing QR code or use the paper-based contact tracing forms on site. Please also wear a face mask and maintain one metre social distancing. Please stay home if you are feeling unwell. Any updates on event Covid protocols from Auckland Council will be closely monitored and actioned accordingly. Please follow us on Facebook to keep informed of any updates.

Kids' Athletics Series got off to a great start mid-February and is planned to be held on consecutive Tuesdays until 22nd March. Sessions run from 4pm-6pm and are held at Vauxhall Sports Reserve, also known as the North Shore Rugby Club grounds. Attendance is casual and registration takes place on site each session. This event is also Covid safe, so our staff will be asking participants and/or caregivers aged 12+ to show vaccine passes at registration and all other Covid safe protocols will be followed to as per Tamariki Play. Kids' Athletics gives primary/ intermediate school aged kids the chance to have a go, in a fun, non-competitive environment. Younger siblings are welcome.

Devonport Peninsula Trust has some funding available to encourage people living in neighbourhoods from Devonport to Hauraki Corner to get together with their neighbours to develop neighbourhood connections.
