Splashtastic Paddock Pursuit 2016

Happy Girls

It’s always an epic effort getting the Paddock Pursuit organised, but on Sunday we were all in position and ready to go. It was great to see the sun shining and by the time of kick off we had over 500 adult and child participants eager to get wet and muddy!

It’s impossible to organise any event like the Pursuit without the willingness of volunteers and community members to put their hand up and play their part. So to all  of our helpers and marshals a huge thank you for your time in making our event fantastic. (Click on photo to see them in full size)

Portobello Market Day 2016

FreddoWe’re a hardy bunch on the Otago Peninsula and Sunday’s market was a good test of that resolve. The blustery weather and squally showers were a reminder that we are well into winter. Despite the weather the market was very successful and well attended by around 600 people. Once again Jonathon Usher and Pippity Pop proved very popular with children and adults alike and there were plenty of bargains to be had. The support we receive from Cadbury’s really helps the market day, and has become a popular event in Portobello. We look forward to hosting it again next year.
