We invite you to attend a very special Friday afternoon hīkoi and kōrero, visiting culturally and historically significant sites in Ngāmotu. Ngāti te Whiti uri supported by Te Kotahitanga o Te Atiawa and NPDC planners will take us on a journey of the history of Ngāmotu and what the future of our city will look like as envisaged by the Ngāmotu Central City Strategy.

Prior to the hīkoi and kōrero, please meet at 2.00pm for a 2.30pm start in the Plymouth Room at New Plymouth District Council Civic Centre for the Central North Island Branch AGM to be facilitated by the Central North Island Branch Chairperson Nick Aiken.

After the AGM is completed (approx. 30mins), our hīkoi and kōrero will commence from 3.00pm.
