The July School holidays are upon us but there’s plenty of activities on offer to keep the kids (and grown-ups!) entertained.
Nau mai haere mai koutou, let’s celebrate Matariki with a Community Haka at Windsor Reserve, Devonport, on Sunday 7 July at 11am. Everybody is welcome and locals in the community will be on site, ready to support. The Haka will be followed by refreshments, music and a haka contest for tamariki (with prizes to be won) in Devonport Library. This event is supported by RNZN Marae, Devonport Library and Devonport-Takapuna Local Board.

Do you have a budding model maker in the family? Navy Museum are offering a unique one-day opportunity for older kids on Sunday 14 July, 10am-4pm. Graham Beeson, master model ship maker, will lead a special workshop at the Navy Museum for six young people aged 12+ and an adult. With Graham's guidance they'll make their own model of a Stealth Warship. The model to be constructed is currently on display at the Navy Museum - so come and check it out! For more information email Jane Cotty email@example.com or visit: www.navymuseum.co.nz/build-a-model-warship/
Devonport Peninsula Trust’s Winter Fun Preschool Play sessions at The Rose Centre continue throughout July. Held from 9:30am-11:00am every Tuesday, the sessions are free entry, casual attendance and caregiver supervision is required. It’s a great way to get little ones (babies to toddlers) out and about, having fun and socialising in the colder, wetter months.
On Saturday 20 July, 10am-4pm, join Lynn Dawson at the Navy Museum for an introductory workshop for adults who want to learn how to write a memoir and/or family stories. Learn how to record your family stories before they are lost forever. Limited spaces are available. For more information contact Jane Cotty firstname.lastname@example.org visit www.navymuseum.co.nz/write-your-memoir/
