Burnside Primary School food donations:  Thank you so much for your continued donations. We have enough baked beans and canned spaghetti for the rest of the year, so items like rice, pasta sauce, tea/coffee, and spreads (peanut butter/jam) would be welcome alternatives.  Thanks again!

The Village Directory for 2023 will be printed and distributed ‘in the first quarter’ of the new year.  If you have changes to address, phone number or email please let Tracey at Papanui office know.  Thank you.

Bryndwr Manse Garden  As the manse is vacant we need to keep the gardens tidy.  If you are able to help with this for a couple of hours on one of the following days please let me know:-Tuesday 6th, Friday 9th and Saturday 10th.  Andrew S.

Children’s Christmas Celebration– 10am service Sunday 11th December Come along and celebrate Christmas with the young people of the Village.  Everyone is welcome at this special service – bring your children, your grandchildren, and your neighbours! Morning tea will follow the service.  If you are able to bring a plate of child-friendly food to share, it would be much appreciated.

Green fingers, love pot plants, and have an hour to spare?  We have two large pot plants at the Village Papanui which need some TLC – they have thrived on minimal care, and are getting too big for the pots they are in!  I’m hoping we could split them and create several new plants, perhaps to be sold at the first Village Market in 2023.  Contact Tracey at Papanui if you would like to find out more, 352 6197.
