Events, Hui & Activities
Here you can find some of the events, hui and activities we’ve had before – and what we’ve got coming up.
All are welcome to attend our Public Meetings which will be held at the Knox Presbyterian Church, Domain Road, Whakatane.
Funeral Trends and Possibilities
Each year families are taking more of a lead in arranging funerals, making coffins, or weaving whāriki as an alternative. Others are asking our District Council to set aside a space for eco-burials. No embalming chemicals then pollute the soil and a tree rather than a gravestone becomes the memorial. So we are arranging a meeting to discuss funeral options.
Knox Presbyterian Church, Whakatāne
Tues 16 July 10:00–12:30
Come and discuss possibilities: both traditional and new ways to farewell our loved ones.
Can’t wait till July to find out more? Then visit www.bettersendoff.co.nz. It’s full of money saving tips and ideas for funeral organisers.
Further Meetings Planned
August is likely to be on wills and the Personal Property and Protection Rights Act and in September we will invite Council and mayoral candidates to present their ideas

Heart to Heart 2017
An atmosphere of invigorating interconnectedness, which precipitated
an affinity of cohesion and harmony between the service providers, volunteers and organisers, consequently a deeper and sincere feeling of belonging and inclusion was present throughout the day amongst all the people.
