event held on Saturday 14th July 2-4pm.
A Roesels’ Bush Cricket – a species that’s expanding it’s range across the country.
We had a fantastic afternoon, and even the sun came out to play!
Thanks to everyone who came and made it such a good day!
There’s a special mention for the Baker Girls who really contributed to the fun, and Mick whose calling meant that all the dances were do-able!
We painted little bird boxes to go home, and hunted all over the field to see what bugs we could find!
Our events for 2017 will include our third Big Lunch in June, our third ‘Bug Day’ in July, a brand new summer picnic event in August and our second Havelock Hoedown. Now all we need is for the weather to be on our side in 2017 – we didn’t mind the rain really, but we have put in an early order for sunshine on these dates in 2017.
Our locals were not put off by the weather, we know how to have fun here, whether it rains or not!
The first Havelock Hoedown will be held on Havelock Rec on Saturday 10th September, from 12 – 4pm.
Just 3 days to go to the Havelock Hoedown! We have organised lots of fabulous things for you to make this a great fun family event. Here’s what you can expect:
– Music and dancing with our very own line dancing caller
– Bucking bronco
– Bouncy castle
– Western themed games with big prizes (ok they’re small prizes but still fun)
– Fairground rides for the kids
– Raffle – guess the weight of the cake to win it
What you can eat:
– Cake stall (see above) – maybe don’t start with cake
– Hog Roast
– Candy floss
– Ice cream
And there will also be a selection of craft stalls selling things like chilli jam, bunting and teepees.
