Acoustic Routes Christmas Party, Sue and Kim Rose’s home, 329a Paekakariki Hill Road Pauahatanui, Saturday 15 December, 3 pm
Sue and Kim have once again very kindly 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.)
We warmly invite you, your family and any like-minded and/or musical friends. (Sorry, no dogs, no matter how musical.)
What To Bring
Please bring a plate of food for supper, a bottle of what you like to drink, and of course instruments and songs. We ask that you give a Koha, which will be donated to a charity in time for Christmas. Disposable plates, etc., will be provided but those of you who have picnic sets could bring them too, to help reduce the waste.
Instructions for Getting There
Sue and Kim’s home 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. There is a lot of bamboo on their roadside boundary. The nearest train stations are Paremata and Plimmerton if you are being picked up by a driver. Cell phone coverage is marginal but if you have any problems finding it, phone 2379029.
