Te Horo - 8 August -31 October

Over seventy people attended the Changing Faces of Te Horo opening on 7 August. Lifelong Te Horo resident Betty Empson, helped open the event with a talk about the land and the local people. Our guests mingled and enjoyed delicious nibbles provided by Te Horo's famous Red House Cafe. Feedback was very positive!

The exhibition team has created a very atmospheric venue, complete with haybales, a postbox and even a Te Horo stonewall! As well as looking fabulous, there's also loads of information and some great images.

The exhibition will be on show until 31 October, giving members of the public a chance to find out more about Te Horo and its story.

Many thanks to our kind sponsors and all those who worked on the project.
