Family fun day at Battle Hill Farm

6 December 2018

Family fun day at Battle Hill Farm for Eat, Drink and Be Crafty

The popular annual Eat, Drink and Be Crafty fair is being held on Saturday, 26 January at Battle Hill Farm off Paekakariki Hill Rd, Pāuatahanui.

Hand-made crafts, artisan food and drink, and music and activities for all the family are on the cards for the popular annual event, hosted by Mana Lions.

The stallholders are mostly local, selling quality, locally-made goods, says Mana Lions Event Manager, Roger Watkin.

“The focus has always been on the family having a fun day out, where you can stroll around, enjoy the activities, buy some great products and have a picnic in a lovely rural setting,” he said.

“There’s a live band and plenty of room for dancing and relaxing.”

The craft stalls include hand-crafted jewellery, scented candles, clothing, hand-made cards, furniture, soaps and plants.

There’s also great coffee, a variety of food options and the chance for craft beer and wine tastings, Mr Watkin said.

Cellphone coverage in the area can be a problem, which in turns creates Eftpos issues, so it is recommended fairgoers bring cash. However, Mana Lions will be operating a limited Eftpos facility on the day so people can draw cash out.

There is plenty of parking with a gold coin fair admission donation that will go to Wellington Free Ambulance and local charities.

Porirua City Council provided $7500 to Mana Lions through the Major Events Investment Fund to help them host the event.

Battle Hill Farm is about 5km from Pāuatahanui Village. The fair runs from 10am to 4pm.

Gordon Campbell: On The Politics Of Why We’re Not Getting An Inquiry Into The White Island Disaster

The Ardern government has made an art form out of reviews and inquiries- when to hold them, when to fold them, and when to shelve the findings, virtually untouched. Among other things, the WorkSafe criminal proceedings into the Whakaari /White Island disaster look like the outcome of a conscious political strategy. The government is choosing this route instead holding a proper inquiry, because it can conveniently narrow the focus only to (a) the events prior to the eruption and (b) solely to possible violations of our labour laws...
