Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Thank you to everyone who came down and joined in the celebrations. What a fantastic day. A day like this takes a village, and we have many people to thank for their support.

A huge thank you to both bouncy Castle suppliers - 123 Bouncy Castles who are always so helpful, and even went the extra mile by setting up our community bouncy castle sponsored by World Moving & Storage. Karen Young from Naylor Love, who supplied much needed shade with their Gazebos. Mitre 10 MEGA Papanui for the use of their community BBQ. O'Neill School of Irish Dance, NZ, who gave an outstanding performance for all - what an absolute treat! Brendan from POP IT for sorting out sound for the event. Sean from Emerald Landscapes for being our toy transport system, and always keeping our gardens and hedges looking lovely and tidy. Thank you to Wildewoman Magenta Wilde Artist, the very talented face painter. Katherine from Happy Go Glitter who made all our kids sparkly. Parklands Toy Library who supplied all the fun outside toys that the kids enjoyed so much. Thank you to Liam, who we managed to rope into being our St. Patrick - he suited that job well. We also want to thank a very generous sponsor who donated all the sausages for the community BBQ. Thank you to our Vendors who fed and watered everyone, Max and Caro from Lucky Road Coffee, Bryce and the young'uns from Donut Den - Lil Orbits Timaru, Daljeet & Pretesh from Halswell Real Fruit Ice Cream and Maggie from Rainbow Candy Floss.Thank you all so much, you are legends!

To the Exec and our members who helped set up, supervise, attended stations and did anything that needed done - we can not thank you enough. You are the reason we can hold these events.
