We are doing it again in March! After our February Garage sale and market we got loads of requests for another as people missed out coming along and also booking a space on the Village green. With new stall holders and different things for re-using, re-reading, re-wearing, re-playing, re-potting, re-decoration… you get it. So book a space or just come along with your family and friends and enjoy the day on the Village Green.
Saturday 2nd Feb 2019 10am to 1pm.
Time to start clearing out your garage, basement and attic. Make it a good start to 2019 to clear space and re-use, re-purpose and recycle. Book a space on the Village Green to set up your tarpaulin for a great day.
On the day there will be other family activities, and entertainment. Details to come.
Contact Angela 021 491 106 for a space on the Village Green or stall.
Christmas on the Village Green and Christmas Market was a fun day with loads of families and residents out enjoying the sun and entertainment. The kids made the most of the green, scooter circuit and of course Santa’s lolly scramble. The egg and spoon races had heaps of kids involved and heaps of boiled eggs were cracked.
The Samoan Methodist Church Choir sang beautiful Samoan Christmas carols and Zanos filled the air with his bagpipe music and violin.
Predator Free Mt Vic sold traps and the Weta Motels were also available. Louise gave away free seeds and pots for the Grow a Garden initiative.
Thank you to the many stall holders offering different types of food, crafts, books, jewellery and more. And the sausage sizzle was a success.
A big thanks from the Play Group to Matt for sponsoring the bouncy castle. We even had some adults sneak on for a bounce or two.
All in all, a great day in Hataitai!
Special thanks go to the following:
Matt Thorn from Lowe & Co, Samoan Methodist Church Choir, 8-year-old Zanos Boulieris who played the bagpipes and violin, Hataitai Community Market stallholders.

In September the Wellington City Council asked for your feedback on the proposal to install traffic lights and signals at the Hataitai crossroads of Moxham Avenue, Hataitai Road and Waitoa Road. The reason for the proposed change is to improve safety for pedestrians, motorcyclists, cyclists and drivers.
WCC received 784 responses to the questionnaire, of which 82% were from residents. The majority of respondents were opposed to traffic lights but there were high levels of concern about the safety of the intersection.
The results from the engagement survey can be viewed here
Officers are now considering other options based on the submissions received, and it is expected in March next year to re-engage with the community on the preferred option(s)
Hataitai local resident Louise Brockway researched over 150 Hataitai residents who went to WW1 and published their profiles.
To mark 100 years since the end of WW1, the Hataitai Community House and Hataitai Community Recreation Trust, Joint Management Committee posted this display at the Hataitai Bowling Club on Armistice Day (Sunday 11th November)
Over 80 Hataitai locals turned up to enjoy the display. Thanks to all of those that came along and enjoyed a beautiful afternoon.
