Community Wishing Tree in Takapuna

The grand oak tree outside the Mary Thomas Centre in Takapuna was the focus of a community networking event in late May. In a concept founded on the children's story The Wishing Tree, representatives from community organisations, schools and services came together to make their own wish for the community on May 29th, whilst also networking and showcasing their work. Local bagpipe player Joseph McCallum heralded the opening of the event, which was organised by Auckland North Community & Development and included information stalls, food & coffee trucks and performance art, as well as the tying of wishes around the oak tree.
