What a fantastic day we had at our annual Pet and Craft day this year. The weather was phenomenal despite some rain forecast (thankfully that waited until 2:30pm!).
A huge thank you to our judges – Miranda from River Valley and Becca and Hannah from Growing Future Farmers. They were all VERY impressed with the quality of entries in both the craft and pet sections.
Also a big thank you to all of our community members who came out to support our tamariki. They had a great time sharing their skills with you all and judging the adult cupcake decorating competition of course!
The vege / fruit creations were my personal favourite where we had ‘If a Penguin got Botox’, McD’s Burger and Fries, Taihape Waka, Barny the Dolphin, Olly the Octopus, a frightening zombie, a halloween pumpkin, a snowman and sauce and chips.
