To celebrate Father’s Day, Mahurangi Matters wants you to send us a picture of you and a dad in your life for a chance to win a prize from one of the generous businesses listed above.
Every dad is different, so there are a number of different prizes up for grabs to appeal to the handyman dad, the sweet-tooth dad, the fitness dad and even the fashionista dad. The total value of all prizes is just over $1100.
All you need to do to enter is email your “me and my dad” pic to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Mahurangi Matters, drop it in to 17 Neville Street Warkworth, or send it to the Mahurangi Matters Facebook page.
All entries will go in the draw and the winners will be chosen randomly. A selection of pictures will be published in the Mahurangi Matters August 30 edition.
Terms and conditions can be found alongside this story on our website.
Competition ends and winner chosen at 10am, Monday, August 23, 2021.

Kiwis have been celebrating Father’s Day since 1929, when St Matthew’s Church in Auckland’s CBD held the first Father’s Day church service on July 14. Since then, the day has evolved to become a regular occurrence on the first Sunday of September. Being a father in 2021 looks a little different to how it did in 1929. Fathers in 1929 had a much more traditional role within society. They were generally known as breadwinners and had little to do with child-raising. Fathers in 2021 are moving away from these traditional gender roles, creating a rise in stay-at-home dads. In the 2019 financial year, 948 men received income in the form of paid parental leave payments, up from 372 in 2009.
