Waipukurau News

After being closed for several years, St Mary's Church re-opened last year following substantial earthquake strengthening  work to the Church; the Bell Tower has undergone similar strengthening work over recent months. All work work to the fabric of the church is virtually completed and St Mary's is now fully open again. 

A kitchenette in the church (for tea and coffee making following services etc) is  planned, A recent fundraising Fair on "the Green" in Ruataniwha Street, Waipukurau has raised a further $1,900 towards the cost of this additional work.

The fundraising efforts involved over recent years to pay for the earthquake strengthening  were truly magnificent and all those involved in that fundraising  are to be congratulated once more.
