Wairarapa Garden Tour Tickets selling quickly

Organisers of the Wairarapa Garden Tour, a fundraiser for Pukaha Mount Bruce, say that a record number of tickets have been sold - with limited number remaining for the self drive tour being held on 7 & 8 November 2015.

With gardens such as Fernside and Brancepeth on display, plus others usually  not open to the public, the Garden Tour is expected to sell out and people are encouraged to get their tickets now or risk being disappointed.

Breadcraft Wild Challenge this weekend

The organisers of the Breadcraft Wild Challenge and Wild Challenge Kids Run are putting together the final details for this Pukaha fundraising event and are calling for those people who may still be thinking about entering to get their entries in by Friday.

Racebags and goodie bags are being collated and while organisers are happy for kids to turn up on the day to register for the Kids Run, they need to be aware that if they haven't pre-registered, their goodie bags won't contain a T-shirt - although one will be sent out to them after raceday.

Kids can run or walk to save the birds!

Kids can show their support for conservation by tackling the Pukaha loop track as part of the Wild Challenge Kids Run on Sunday September 27.

Lots of kids want to actively help out with conservation efforts and this is a great way for them to get out into our native forest as well. Kids don’t have to run the course - they can choose to walk or run. The Wild Challenge Kids Run is a participation event and by getting out into the forest kids can show that they support the restoration of a forest full of native species.
