Kia ora koutou
Ngā mihi aroha ki a koutou katoa, ngā whānau o ngā rūnanga arohanui. Has this year gone quick or what? Next month the big Christmas is upon us, boy oh boy, no wonder I have no hair, haha. Anyway we have been busy here on the marae with different hui. Our upoko had his 70th last month with a very good turnout, even Elvis was in the house.

Another tikanga programme was held at the marae. The programme had a good turnout of whānau and participants and was very well run. Well done to all the whānau who gave up their time to help to make it a great hui.

Hine Te Wai and Māori Land Court were back again, it’s good to see them keep coming back, and of course we will see you all at the Hui-ā-Iwi o Kāi Tahu. Should be a great weekend.

There’s not much else to say except take care.
Everything comes to you in the right moment whānau, be patient. Hugs, cuddles, and laughter are what we need to be doing now because the crazy times are coming up fast.
