  • Under 13: Struan Campbell, Ben Hayward, Max Wolf, Grace Blackie, Hannah Matehaere, Annie Kennedy-Aitcheson.

The last week has been a quiet time having dispatched the boards and tent to the Mount via Mainfreight. (Thanks Rob Stout for organising this.) Also thanks to Steve Mowat Building and Construction Ltd. for taking the cages to Mainfreight. Finally there was some great efforts put in for fundraising, and it would be great to support the businesses who sponsored our “Weekender” article.
