This Friday the 18th December from 5pm-7pm at the live Christmas Tree next to the Havelock Town Hall, Santa and his Christmas Fairy will be visiting the children of the Pelorus Community Pre-School and the Havelock School. Come along for a photo with Santa and a small gift to celebrate Christmas this year. This has all been organised by the Havelock Enhancement Working Group via their "Bringing Christmas to Havelock" project. The working group has been working hard to bring that abundance of Christmas Spirit and Cheer to Havelock that the community has all experienced in one way or another as they have tumbled and toiled to bring Christmas to Havelock this year.
Best of all, in their crowning achievement, the working group have convinced Santa to step away from his busy North Pole workshop and visit Havelock for some photos and, so the rumor goes, he is bringing some wee gifts with him all the way from the North Pole. Trust me, you wont want to miss out on this one, head down to the live Christmas tree (next to the Town Hall) this Friday the 18th from 5pm-7pm and celebrate Santa's visit with your friends and family and all the wonderful people in our lucky little community.

I was also recently fortunate enough to attend the 2015 Tonic Conference in Wellington which covered all the aspects of not-for-profits management including workshops on good governance, evaluation, leadership, and fundraising. I picked up a lot of useful ideas very relevant to the HCA and Havelock community and I am very much looking forward to sharing these along with some other recommendations with the HCA during Monday nights meeting.
A huge thanks to Jim Baillie, The Pelorus Mail Boat, Havelock Lions, Havelock Town Cafe, and everyone else who helped so much with organising this years Ceilidh Scottish Country Dance. The event was a huge success and, as well as been the most fun had standing up, the event also managed to raise a massive $1300 towards the Havelock Boardwalk Project. A great success that we're looking forward to celebrating again next year. HN.
The first set of Christmas banners/flags arrived last week. It took me about half an hour in the sweltering heat to put up all nine of the new "Christmas" banners and I think the end result is fantastic. Especially with all the hard work the Bringing Christmas to Havelock group has been doing, and everyone else that is getting on board with Christmas in Havelock this year. HN.
