Fair for historic hall postponed

The Kauaeranga Valley’s good old-fashioned fund-raising Country Fair to celebrate the arrival of Spring has been postponed until the New Year.

The fun-filled event was scheduled to take place on October 1, but organisers reluctantly made the decision to postpone after the predicted weather forecast on the day was “totally unfavourable”.

It was hoped the fair would raise sufficient funds to further improve the hall and its surrounds, including improvements to the toilets and water supply.

Valley residents had spent many months preparing for the fair which was set to feature the Kauaeranga Café, Kauaeranga’s own Pinnacle Coffee and  “Bring & Buy” tables with a large array of produce, baking, crafts and plants.

Raffles were also set for the fair and an ever-popular silent auction of goods and services donated by local residents, including artwork, B&B overnight stays, and trailer loads of firewood.

All donated goods would be held until the event was rescheduled.
