Kia ora koutou whānau,
Well time flies when you are having fun, whānau will be away to the Tītī Islands and just like that they will be home again and it will be May. Not forgetting our succulent tio as well, yummy tītī and tio.

Murihiku Marae has been having all sorts of hui and different meetings – all good too. Lots of little but essential things have happened like our kaumātua went to see the Māori Quartet and they very much enjoyed it – it was a good night out. We have our community garden going well, some teething problems but otherwise all ka pai and some whānau are being given fresh vegetables grown at Murihiku Marae and it’s a good relationship between us and the community. Excellent job! A big shout out to all our whānau overseas and those that are living away from Murihiku, tēnā koutou ngā whanauka mihi aroha we hope you are all well, cheers whānau. To all the whānau that have had new pēpi congratulations from Waihōpai whānau and the same for all our birthday whānau – a big congratulations to you guys as well. And most importantly to our whānau that have lost a loved one since our last kōrero. Waihōpai sends their condolences and aroha to you all aroha nui.

It’s time for me to hang up my pen for another month and get on with my mahi. Listen folks take very good care of one another arguing and fighting is not good, hugs and laughter are better ka pai. Nā Squirrel on the Hill, hei konei rā Waihōpai Rūnaka.
