Kia ora whānau,
I trust you have all had a safe and restful holiday and enjoyed our hot summer! Over the Christmas period, a lovely pōwhiri was held for Thomas Millar’s new wife, Belinda and her family. It was a beautiful day at Ōnuku and for the days of festivities that followed before their wedding in Sydney. Congratulations Thomas and Belinda!

Thomas Miller, Belinda and whānau.

Also over the summer break (if you can call it that!), a group of whānau have worked endlessly at Ōnuku tidying up the place. The fence line along Te Awa-iti Creek has been completed, creek banks and gardens tidied and a touch-up of paint here and there also, all in preparation for our busy string of noho marae in the coming months. Thank you everyone who donated their holiday time for some good hard work at home.
