Takapuna North Community News

Such a fun and busy summer

Last month was extremely busy (not to mention fun!) with Neighbours' Day events in Castor Bay and Sunnynook; Charlie’s Play Date; the Young Designers’ and Creators’ Market, the Primary School Beach Clean Up Day, Summer Fun preschool play, Families in Parks and Milford’s French Market.

We love being out in the community, meeting people and hearing about the things that you are interested in. There are so many wonderful community groups and activities happening and you can find out about many of them on the Takapuna North residents Facebook group.  Search “Hauraki, Takapuna, Milford, Forrest Hill, Castor Bay & Sunnynook residents” on  Facebook or type in www.facebook.com/groups/TakapunaNorth/ to find it. 

Intergenerational Dialogue: On Thursday 4th April, around 50 local high school students and more senior members of the community will come together to discuss local issues and consider possible solutions at this annual event. If you are an older person who would like to take part in this free event; or if you are a member of the local community and have any suggestions for issues to discuss, please get in touch. Contact details are below. This year’s event will take place at Takapuna Library.
