In celebrating the 150th of Puhoi, there will be a fascinating exhibition of books over 150 years.
Please come and help us spruce up the hall ready for the 150th celebrations. Just an hour of your time would be much appreciated.
Don’t forget, the hall belongs to all of us.
Please come along and help. It is a good way to meet and make friends with your neighbours.
Look forward to seeing you there.
Come along on Sunday morning and help your local Landcare team plant some greenery to make Puhoi even more beautiful.
