Workshop in a box

Some of you would have participated in a workshop in a box  – a town planning game created for people to share their ideas about awa Mahurangi, green spaces, getting around town, play, meeting up and wellbeing. We had families, community organisations, book clubs and 80 students from Te Kura o Puhinui engage in the workshop in a box and share their ideas for the future of Puhinui Warkworth.

Festival of Ideas

Braving the weather, the community came out to share their ideas for the future of Puhinui Warkworth on Sunday 07 August.

There were a range of local speakers invited to take part in a living library – having chats with people throughout the event about their inspirational ideas for the town centre and awa Mahurangi. We heard from landscape architect Clynt White; Senior Lecturer of Architecture and Planning Bill McKay, local Donna Wyllie, Restore Rodney East’s Tim Armitage, and Delma O’Kane from Ngāti Manuhiri Settlement Trust all sharing their knowledge, experiences and aspirations for the future of Puhinui Warkworth.
