TeAwamutu.Net Seminar

A small but appreciative crowd showed up to this event and hopefully went away with some useful information. A big thank you to everyone who made the effort to attend. Remember, Dave is available as a guest speaker for events and meetings - please contact us for more information.

Online Shopping Centre

We are currently developing an online shopping centre at Te Awamutu Online. We will be starting with a modest selection of Te Awamutu and New Zealand-related merchandise. If you have any suggestions for items we could be including in our stock, please contact us. We'll let you know as soon as the shop opens.

In Brief...

  • Following successful fundraising campaigns, Te Awamutu Primary and Ohaupo school both opened major new additions to their playgrounds.
  • Bruce Reihana was named Sportsperson of the Year at the Waipa District Sports Awards.
  • The Te Awamutu Museum has established a rented storage area and is now able to begin accepting new items again. The museum is also hosting a painting exhibition called "Abbreviations" until January 6 2003.
  • Split Enz held a 30th anniversary celebration in Auckland. Unfortunately the television coverage hosted by Paul Holmes was widely criticised as being a disjointed shambles.
  • The 133rd Annual Boxing Day Races at Pirongia didn't happen. The hugely popular event was cancelled due to weather conditions.

All the best for a safe and happy New Year. See you in 2003.

Dave and Richard.
