5 December Meeting

  • This week Kaikohe Rotary took the opportunity of sampling a business that has recently opened in Kaikohe. On Wednesday evening we held our meeting at the Left Bank- a cafe/restaurant in the former BNZ. Bay of Islands Rotarian Jack Poutsma and his partner Di Maxwell have done a fantastic job of revamping the BNZ building. Its reopening has been long awaited - but the wait has certainly been worthwhile.

  • Upstairs is accommodation targeted at those using the Twin Coast Cycle Trail. The ground floor is the eating establishment which is a significant addition to the gastronomic delights available in our team. Our meals were of the highest quality and drew universal praise from Rotarians and guests.

  • We also heard from Jessica Tuckerman who is Kaikohe's Public Librarian. Jess told us she is looking at revamping the library to make best use of space and take account of changing needs. The current building has changed little since the Rotary funded an extension in the mid 1980s and it is looking a little tired. The library is surveying users to find out what services they want.

  • We had planned a visit to the library. But it was put off because we ran out of time. We hope to reschedule for 23 January - just before the end of public consultation.

  • After the meeting Jess posed for a photo with President Valerie.
