Two events coming up: the first is a Labour Day picnic, at Greymouth/Mawhera town square, 2.00pm, October 24th. This will be an opportunity to both christen the new town square as a site for political gatherings and to announce the results of our audience surveys re a transition economy for the Coast. If wet, we’ll transfer to the nearby cafe. A document will be available for people to sign before it is nailed to the doors of the Councils and DWC (maybe blue tacked).
The second event is the annual Pike Commemoration on Saturday November 19th. As well as the usual ritual, including Waiata Koha singing Mine and the families putting flowers on the wheel, a new exhibition telling the Pike story will be opened at the Museum. The event will begin at 6.00pm.
