The plan was to accommodate up to 200 manuhiri and we achieved 170 comfortably. Yes, it was a little snug while we were having a kai but as soon as some of the plates were cleared and the tables packed down there was room for some FUN.
Like the AGM, our TRAION staff delivered this event with a small team. What was achieved was due to great planning, so a special thanks to our super staffer Lee Mason (Kaumātua Kuia Coordinator.) A lot of preparation had been done the night before, with the final touches in the morning. The table settings were beautifully decorated with kōrari flowers sitting underneath pohutukawa flowers. A lovely tribute leading to a reminder that the kina should be fat.
And just a reminder that it’s important to keep in touch with us. Check you’re registered and on the mailing list for our E Mara pānui. We’ll send updates straight to your email.
