18 April Meeting Report
  • On Thursday 18 April we took up an invitation from Kaikohe Lions President John Field to meet with the Lions at Kohewhata Marae.

  • About 30 people were called in to Puhimoana Ariki by Kataraina Wihongi including quite a few waewae tapu (people who had not been on the marae before).

  • There were welcome speeches in Māori and English by Robbie Martin and Ted Wihongi. John Field, Peter Macauley and Don Edmonds responded on behalf of the visitors.

  • Robbie and Ted explained something of the history of the house, its symbolism, and purpose before opening the floor to anyone who wanted to speak.

  • Everyone then moved across to the dining hall for a beautifully presented and delicious dinner.

  • Presidents John Field and Noel Birchall thanked the hosts and expressed a commitment to working together for the betterment of the community.
