CHANGE OF EVENT We have been superceded by the National Party caucus at our venue this coming Monday evening. The Bowling Club was double booked and we have had difficulty finding another venue at such short notice. Given this and the Waitangi Day and weekend getaways, we have slated our guest speaker to March.
We have reserved about 20 seats at Macau in the patio area from 5:30pm to 7:00pm Monday evening for an informal mingle and catchup for anyone who wants to chat about new trust law changes, healthy home standards, or just investment topics in general. Macau's happy hour is until 6pm, so we get the last 30 minutes.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused but these circumstances are beyond our control. 10-02-2020 more >>

A complete plants package - without a hefty price tag Landscaping supplies can cost you an arm, and a leg as well as your patience. Adding up the price of plants, the time deciding which plants are right for the environment, not to mention the to-ing and fro-ing, loading and off-loading â€“ well, it can leave more than your budget broken. So, we were pleasantly surprised when we discovered thereâ€™s something like flat pack furniture, but for the outdoors. In short, itâ€™s a complete (and affordable) plants package that provides you with what you need to create an entire garden, including plants, shrubbery, flowers and trees. 20-06-2019 more >>
