A pinch and a punch for the 4th of the month, and the rest of the year too - just in case I miss the opportunity. Wow that was a great new year. I hope yours was good too. Friends and family are still coming and going, and it’s nice to have a little time for ourselves too. I’ve got a few suggestions to keep you busy; and not so busy. It’s all here on the back doorstep; you don’t have to travel for miles to get there. If you want to find out more go to our website and have a look around. Now, when’s the next long weekend?
LOOK, WATCH, BUY
You can do all three with Art Waihi’s Summer Art Exhibition on January 11 and 12 in Waihi Memorial Hall. Most art’s for sale, and there are artists working on projects you can watch and talk to as well. Tineke Slomp paints in a very modern style, Val Tubman works with water colours, acrylics, pastels and oils and has been experimenting with a pallet knife, and Con Kiernan is an expert mosaic artist, and they’re all working on site over the two days. It’s just a gold coin to get in.
BULLET POINT UPDATES
COMING SOON TO A TOWN CALLED WAIHI
ECHO Walking Festival has over 30 walks suitable for all ages and abilities, with some unique walks that aren’t open to the public at other times. Brochures around town will give you a good overview, and if you go to our website and follow the link there are full descriptions and you can book there too.
Fun, frivolity and flippin’ lots of cars and people – that’s what makes the first day of Beach Hop so much fun in Waihi. We host the Warm Up Party on Wednesday March 20 with a convoy of hundreds of cars coming down from Whangamata, and hundreds more coming from all directions to enjoy the bands, classic cars and hot rods and entertainment. We have prizes for the best dressed male and female, and trophies for best hot rod and classic car. Start getting your team of 3 together and think about your outfit for the Gold FM Drag Race. It’s a great day for the not so serious car fan too.
WALKS, BEACHES, EATERIES, ACCOMMODATION, SHOPPING, RELAXATION
Yep, it’s all here for you in and around Waihi. Check out Martha Mine, right in the middle of town. The old saying ‘just a stone’s throw away’ is so true. Waihi’s the hub of the east coast, so central to everywhere you want to explore and visit. Stay in Waihi while you check out the Coromandel Peninsular, or visit the bigger city centres. The title says it all, well almost, so stay a while and enjoy our piece of paradise we like to call home.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Sex on TV can’t hurt you – unless you fall off.
