The Village Spring ‘Garage Sale’: The Parish Council have set a date for The Village Spring Garage Sale.
This year as a way to try a different approach to the Garage Sale we are planning a ‘Twilight Market’ to be held in the early evening of Friday 11 October at Papanui.
We anticipate that the focus for this will be on Plants and Cakes etc with a modest amount of 2nd hand items as well. More info to come closer to the time!
The Village Birthday Dinners: Each month those people with a birthday in that month (and their partners) gather for a fun and relaxed evening meal to celebrate their birthdays together. It really is a wonderful time together. Some meals are in homes and others go to a restaurant.
If you don’t know if you are on the birthday list, please let Tracey at the Papanui Office know the special date, and await the invitation!
