OUT& Valley about Aro Secrets PHOTOS: Bella Photography

By Rachel Binning

A light shower and a cold snap did not deter some 200 people from enjoying the inaugural AROund the Valley Aro Valley Neighbours Day sights, smells and tours on Saturday May 13 including Aro Valley’s now not-so-secret community garden. Krissy Cloutman Aro Valley Community Centre Community Co-ordinator said, “it was a fantastic community building event. It was great to have so many organisations

and businesses participate”. Neighbours who regularly smelt pain au chocolat cooking were privileged to see how the delicious wares were made within Arobake. The 128 Community Centre opened to showcase its diverse activities. Te Aro School opened its doors to demonstrate its inner city beehive, which is cared for by its year four and five children. Krissy proudly said Aro Valley “has such a strong community and creative, fun vibe”.
