Subject            UPDATE FROM PUKERĀTĀ MARAE

The following is an update from Pukerātā Marae:

(a) Renovations on the whare karakia are nearly complete (i.e. replacing the roof and outer weatherboards and extending the entrance).  The renovations have been done by the whanau from Otaua – all voluntary and funded by the Trustees.

(b) The defribrelator is currently attached to the wharenui, however, this will be relocated to the whare karakia once the renovations are complete to allow easier access to it by the Otaua community.

(c)  The gate to the wahi tapu, Tarawa Piu Piu, has been replaced by one of the whanau, and a new tool shed has been donated.

(d) New crockery (200 x dinner plates, side plates, dessert plates), bowls and 200 x drinking glasses for the marae have been donated to the marae by whanau

(e)  The Otaua Marae Committee held its annual general meeting on 29 September 2012, with the new committee being:

            (i)   Tau Kopa – Chairperson;

            (ii)  Kennedy Tane – Vice Chairperson;

            (iii) Sue Wipou-Reneti – Treasurer; and

            (iv) Ringa Ashby – Secretary.

(f)  Workshop held on Saturday, 6 October 2012 with Te Papa to complete the boxes for the korowai and rapaki (funding received from Te Papa for the materials required).  Thank you to Te Runanga A Iwi O Ngapuhi for their support of this initiative.
