Well, we have had another uncertain year to contend with but hope you are all managing to deal with the fluctuating challenges.

MAN GAKAHIA

Unfortunately our monthly country meals have been a casualty of the lockdown restrictions but we look forward to more stability in 2022. However, our club memberships have stayed strong and the community support has been greatly appreciated. It has also been a period of change for your Complex management team. Bexs Waterhouse has taken over the role of Mangakahia Complex Manager and has been a wonderful new addition to our team. We are always keen to have new members join our team and would invite anyone interested in contributing to the operation of the Mangakahia Complex to contact us. Our AGM will be held shortly (details below) and this is a great opportunity to come and gather information or discuss your interest or suggestions.
