The Village Advent Feast: Due to ongoing Covid concerns, unfortunately the Advent Feast is cancelled.  We will now aim to hold this during Autumn 2022.

The ‘Big Quilt’ Raffle – last week to buy tickets, drawn November 7th: Our final fundraiser for the year for Tata School is a raffle – tickets are $2 each or 3 tickets for $5 and available from Bryndwr and Papanui offices.  First prize is a fabulous quilt, based on ‘From the Heart’.  Second prize is a lovely hand crafted felt bag.  

Art Exhibition: The Creative Nest, Creative Dance & Art Therapy NZ ‘Arts 4 All’ and Sharon’s Art Studio extend a warm welcome to an exhibition of painting, writing and craft at The Village Papanui.  Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 November 10.30am to 4.30pm.  Free entry, koha appreciated and all donations will go to our Tata School fundraiser.  Come and be inspired, enthralled, amazed at the creativity of a wide range of ages and abilities.

We are very pleased to host each week, during term time, the students who attend Dance & Arts Therapy programmes at both our Village venues.  Here is a little information from their website, to give some idea of their mission:-
