A number of events have been postponed due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
Wellsford Plus’ Blue September Breakfast
in support of men living with prostate cancer has been postponed to Friday, November 12, 7am-9am. It will be held at the Wellsford Community Centre. Entry for the buffet breakfast is a monetary note donation. Tickets will be available from Hammer Hardware Wellsford or by emailing email@example.com
Warkworth Walks bookings delayed
Warkworth Walks has pushed out the date for bookings to Sunday, October 3. Bookings were due to open this month but have been delayed to allow organisers a chance to assess the status of Covid-19 alert levels and decide on their ongoing strategy. It’s unlikely walks will go ahead at Alert Level 2 but could go ahead at Level 1. Assuming walks can proceed as planned, there will be 11 walks to choose from, including three new walks. They will take place from November 12 to 14. The Warkworth Walks event is now in its 13th year.
The Glass Ceiling Arts Collective
production of Beauty in the Beast, due to be hosted in the Warkworth Town Hall this month, has been postponed until February 2022. Org aniser Charlotte Pring says rehearsals will continue online and then in person once restriction levels are eased. She says in the meantime, the thespians have been holding weekly dance parties on Zoom each Saturday at 4.30pm. Charlotte says anyone is welcome to join by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The collective organises events for people with disabilities and their families.
2021 World of Wearable Arts
The 2021 World of Wearable Arts Awards have been cancelled. Chief Executive David Tingey says it was a “tough decision” but rescheduling the event was proving to be too complex. Instead, it is hoped that the competition can be completed in another format. Three Warkworth artists were set to exhibit in the show.
has postponed the release of updated property values that will define rates bills. It says restrictions have prevented the Valuer General from making site visits. The updated values will be released in December instead of next month. “Given updated property values do not affect rates until July 1 next year, there will be no flow-on impacts,” Council says.
The Whangarei Fringe Festival
due to be held next month, has been postponed but organisers hope to hold it before the end of the year.
