Hello to all our Milford customers. Wow! Wasn’t it great to get away for a break from life as it had been in 2020 and enjoy the Christmas/New Year with family and friends?
Milford businesses are back to full steam after having varied breaks and are looking forward to serving you as you ‘shop local’ this year. We have a number of new businesses that will open in the first quarter of 2021. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page ‘milfordshops’ for details when they announce their opening.
Our next major event is the wonderful Vive La France, which we hold on Saturday 27th February from 10am to 3pm. We will have the main street closed for that period, as we have done for the past few events, and have a line-up of entertainment on stage thrughout the event.
Our normal array of entertainment includes JP the clown/magician with his infamous ‘Snail Race’, face painters, kids' entertainment, entertainers on stage and of course, after its amazing success last year, the Pet & Vet Dog show. Entry details for this will be on our Facebook page and at Pet & Vet in Shakespeare Road.
Peugeot/Citröen North Shore will have a line of new cars on display and nearby will be a petanque court for you to have a game with friends and family. It will be great fun!
Of course there will be bargains galore from our retailers, market day stalls and great food and beverages from our hospitality businesses. Details of this event will be updated regularly on our Facebook page (milfordshops) and website www.milfordshops.co.nz
Head of the Harbour Rowing Regatta – Saturday February 13th
For those of you who have followed the secondary school rowing over the years, the Head of the Harbour Rowing Regatta is on at Lake Pupuke on Saturday 13th February. This is organised by my old high school, Takapuna Grammar, which runs a great event. Get along, see the new talent coming to the fore, then pop in to Milford for some hospitality or retail therapy. We look forward to seeing you.
