Yes, it’s almost summer on the Shore. Hallelujah!
And as if simply being here, when the sun plays ball, the water warms up and the cafes are buzzing isn’t good enough, there’s heaps more to look forward to, as you’ll see in this issue.
Our guide to the Shore summer ahead has loads of events to lock into your calendars from cricket to community Christmas markets, book launches to beach polo. A new highlight is set to be the Takapuna Food, Wine and Music Festival. Adam Bennett, the man behind the event to be held at Smales Farm on February xx talked to our Aidan Bennett (no relation!) for this issue. He gives readers an insight into what to expect and we can’t wait!
Staying Healthy - it’s a Shore thing. And we celebrate it with a section of content dedicated to looking after yourself well. In it, Aidan shows us the novel fitness technique he feels could be behind North Harbour Rugby team’s recent resurgence, we shine a light on a new Shore medical centre with an ‘unmedicalising’ approach to providing high-tech medical care, and give readers a heads up on some of the group and individual fitness options available this summer on the Shore.
