At time of writing, we are at the start of Level 4 lockdown, without a clear picture of how long it will last. We hope that during September, lockdown restrictions will be eased, but for now our regular programmes like Hōtoke/Winter Fun Preschool Play and Intergenerational Meet-ups are on hold until further notice.
We will continue to plan for events happening a bit later in the year and have our fingers and toes crossed that they will be able to go ahead. Watch this space for information on the Bayswater Halloween Trail, planned for Friday 29th October this year and annual favourite, Devonport Christmas Festival planned for Sunday 5th December. Raumati/Summer Fun Preschool Play mornings will of course also be starting from 2 November, all going well!
