Acoustic Routes Christmas Party PDF Print E-mail

Christmas Party, Sue and Kim Rose's home, Pauatahanui Hill Road, Pauatahanui, Sunday 14 December, 4 pm

This will be a festive treat out in the countryside.
Sue and Kim have offered to host this year's AR Christmas party at their gorgeous rural retreat nestled in a little valley about 3 km from the Pauahatanui shops.
(It's about the same distance from Wellington as Plimmerton - see directions below or map in Balladeer).
What To Bring
Please bring food for a shared meal, drink and a small gift (no more than $10) for the secret Santa, and of course instruments and songs and a little bit of cash for a koha.
Disposable plates, etc., will be provided but those of you who have picnic sets could bring them too, to help reduce the waste.
Sue and Kim's rural retreat is 3.29 kilometres from Pauatahanui village, heading north up the  Paekakariki Hill Rd. At the end of a long straight you'll find the golf club on the right. Turn left into the drive just past that, cross the bridge and take the left hand fork to the house.
