Don’t forget that the art studio will be open on the Saturday for people who want to revisit old times.

Just over 100 years ago a little place by the name of Shag Creek was renamed; and so Ruawai was established.

From these humble roots in the barely drained tidal estuary of the Kaipara Harbour, Ruawai grew. At it’s peak it boasted a cinema, a dairy factory, Northland’s leading ladies’ fashion shop and even a billiard saloon. Today, with the changes in the primary industry (dairy) a smaller population means we don’t have quite the resources that used to be available but Ruawai is still a proud community that works together to keep the spirit of Ruawai alive.

So join us for the Ruawai Centennial (plus) celebrations: 22 March 2014!
