Time Is Running Out!

Time Is Running Out!

Ticket sales are going great guns for the Garden Tour this weekend. But it's not too late!

We'll be selling tickets right up until - and during - the weekend! Great news - the weather forecast is looking good too.

Remember this is your opportunity to see 14 wonderful Wairarapa gardens for just $40 per person over two days. Most gardens are not usually open to the public and may never be again! (Unless we convince the generous garden owners to support us for the 2014 Wairarapa Garden Tour of course!)

Find out more about the garden tour at www.pukaha.org.nz

As we said, we'll be selling tickets right up to and including this weekend.

If you're travelling from Wellington, you could stop off at Adorne gift shop in Greytown - 106 Main Street (opposite the Library and Town Centre) where tickets will be on sale from 9am on Saturday and Sunday.

Or, if you're coming from north of Masterton, you can buy your tickets from the Pukaha Mount Bruce visitor centre which is open from 9am every day.

Tickets are also on sale at i-Sites in Masterton and Martinborough (from 10am on Saturday and Sunday).

You can also still purchase your tickets on line at www.pukaha.org.nz and we'll arrange the best way for you to collect your tickets.

This is a wonderful way to support Pukaha Mount Bruce and help us keep our wildlife safe - not to mention a great way to spend a weekend. Funds raised go directly towards the $150,000 Pukaha has to raise each and every year just to maintain our current level of protection.

We can't thank enough the generous garden owners who have opened their gardens for us. We also have a huge contingent of volunteers to help out on the day. And of course our wonderful print partner - Wairarapa Times-Age and our great radio partner - MediaWorks. Without this generous support we simply wouldn't be able to put on such a wonderful event. Thank you to all our supporters - including those of you that come on the tour!

If you are coming on the tour, we hope you have a wonderful weekend. We would really appreciate you passing this information on to anyone else you think may be interested!

Werewolf: Music Criticism As A Dating Metaphor

Music criticism can be just another form of consumer advic... Yet ever since pop music criticism first entered the media mainstream it has played a wider role, too. Rather than a decree with a numerical score attached, this kind of criticism functions more like travel notes. A conversation, even a form of seduction. More>>

Comedy Festival Review: VOTE BATT

The political campaigning in the US over the last eight months or so has provided a stark insight into how far political candidates are willing to go. This background came into focus as “former comedian” – now politician – Tim Batt ushered people up into the front seats, passing out badges and taking photographs with his not entirely adoring public...
