Ngā mate

We would like to acknowledge the passing of three whānau connected to the hapū; Andy Hamilton, Te Whe Phillips and Judith Wilson (née Rakena) passed away through the month of May. We send prayers of peace and strength to their families through this time.

Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke office

We will remain on the south side of the marae for a few more weeks. We are still expecting the main service providers (Chorus) to prepare the selected new office space with the appropriate cables before the Ngāi Tahu BIS Team can come in and make the relevant connections to the network. In the meantime, we are also utilising the resources of Lyttelton Library for administration services. It has been exhausting on our resources and time for the last two months and will be another month before we are happily settled into the new office premises.
