The new Greenkeeper is keen to invite the birds back to the course to help with pest eradication, so he’s put in a whole lot of these “nests” around the course. Look forward to seeing the bird population growing.

Powhiri for the new Warehouse store in Royal Oak

Yesterday I attended the cultural blessing of a new store, it began at 5 as is traditional, before the sun rises. The family elders who led the blessing were lovely and made everyone feel included in the ceremony. There certainly was a lot of positive energy poured into that building. The ceremony involves the participants walking around touching the permanent fittings to lift negative thoughts and energies, to leave behind the positive from your touch. Lots of singing and prayers. On leaving the sun came up and further blessed the day with a pretty sunrise.
