Here you can find some of the events, hui and activities we’ve had before – and what we’ve got coming up.

Upcoming events

Public Meetings

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  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
