Matakana locals out to lunch

Around a dozen recent arrivals to Matakana turned up for the first of a new monthly Locals’ Lunch at Plume Café on August 20.

The event is the brainchild of Matakana Community Group member Janis Grummitt, who wants to give newcomers to the area the chance to meet local residents and find out what goes on.

“It was a great first locals’ lunch,” Janis says. “Everyone enjoyed meeting new faces and hearing about local groups to join.”

Similar events will be held on the third Tuesday of every month – the next will be from 12 to 2pm on Tuesday, September 17, venue to be confirmed.
