Pick of the crop

There’s been some corker things happening out there – N8N shares highlights from around the area that took our fancy.

How about this from Orini Combined School’s Harvest Festival – Lucas Greaves sits on his family’s whopping 39kg monster pumpkin.

The Scholastic Book Fair is in full swing at the school – open from 8.30 – 9.30am and 2 -3pm Monday to Thursday.  This is from the wild west mufti day held yesterday.



And we couldn’t go past this one from Huimai Playcentre.  They hold a ‘Big Kids’ session every Tuesday  and recently visited Good Neighbour in Rototuna for a pizza making session.

Anzac Day is coming up, there’s all sorts happening out there – and The Mandarin Tree’s new exhibition BLUE launched with much sparkle on Saturday.




And look at the sheer delight on Clandon Daffodils’ Ian Riddell’s face in this pic.  And this was before his partner Graham Phillips won gold from the American Daffodil Society!  (It’s time to plant bulbs, by the way.)

Oh oh, the final final thing – this little lady was found in the Gordonton area.  Anyone recognise her?
