Takapuna North Community Trust would like to invite you to attend our quarterly Community Network Meeting  on Tuesday 20th November at the Mary Thomas Building, 3 Gibbons Road, Takapuna. 12-1.30pm in the Channel View Lounge. This meeting will be an opportunity to network, share contacts and tell our stories. It is for community groups, organisations and individuals interested in their community from the Hauraki Corner to Sunnynook area. The meeting will take the form of a short presentation by Peter McNee from Sunnynook Community Association. He will talk about setting up the community association, current projects and their vision for the future of Sunnynook. The presentation will be followed by a round robin of brief introductions by attendees (including the areas they are interested in and any relevant projects they are currently working on). A light lunch will be offered at 1pm which will give attendees an opportunity to chat and network with each other. Please RSVP to Sarah on the email below if you are able to make it.

We had great fun last month at our annual Family Fun Day event. We were entertained by some wonderful animals from Zoo Ventures Pets and Exotic animals workshops and enjoyed face painting, art activities and some great toys and games. Thanks, too, to Youthline who came along for the day to play games and chat to families and children.

Our toy van will be at the Milford Basket Ball Court opening on 3rd November; Milford Christmas by the Lake on 24th November and at Takapuna Christmas Festival on 1st December.
