MUSEUM PAST EVENTS - DOCUMENT

We have compiled a document of some of the community events organised by the Museum and our dedicated volunteer team over the last few years,

The document (click on the blue image to the right) outlines some events of significance that we hope, have helped to maintain a long history in our community of pride and identity.

Events like these are all consuming and are mostly run on a shoe string. This being said we all strive to bring to them, our most professional level of execution.

Without the help of our volunteers and supporters, Our unique story, maintenance of descendant's genealogy and events held on behalf of our community would not be possible.

A special thank you has to go out to all those volunteers and supporters that have stood by us over the years. - THANK YOU

WAIPU IN TARTAN - 27 June - 26 July 2015

Since 2005 and the beginnings of Winter@Waipu, Tartan Day has been celebrated in Waipu on 1 July.

It has grown to replace winter@waipu as the town’s main winter focus, and now lasts for a few weeks.

Since 2013 has been renamed Waipu in Tartan

For this small scottish town, its the time to dust off the kilt, the scarves, the pipes – the town is awash with tartan – there is free shortbread in many shops for those sporting a bit of tartan, and often the Butcher offers a taste of Haggis. There is pipers, and parties, and busking and lots of fun – come and join us.

The Events have been organised by the Waipu Business and promotions Group. Check out The Waipu in Tartan Facebook page or breambay.co.nz for any updates
