The Wave Issue 77

the WAVE Issue 77, August 2017 published by New Brighton Project Inc. Greetings New Brighton It’s been a long cold month but Spring is just around the corner. There are some really good things happening in our village this month. The new playground starts development on the water front, and is planned to be finished around Christmas time this year! Have a look at page 4. If you haven't been in to Virtual Visionz and had a go with their amazing virtual reality headsets and driving simulators, check out our support local business article on the next page. I had a go a few weeks ago and it was truly an amazing experience. I also found in my wanderings this week Calypso Cafe in the Barn, 121 Brighton Mall, is under new management. I popped in and met the owners and was impressed with their community spirit and enthusiasm for being a new business in New Brighton. Along with coffee and cafe food they run Hangi Heaven, a wonderful range of traditional Maori food that customers pre-order online or by phone and then pick up or dine in. I look forward to seeing how they make the space their own in the coming months. You can find them on facebook Hangiheaven All the best, Martha What’s Inside? 2— DCL update 5— Historical Happenings 8— Library Activities 9— Under 5’s 10— Community Food 11— Activities & Events 20— Clubs & Groups Pick up your copy from NB Library, various outlets or the NBP office, or read online at www.joomag.com Deadline for submissions is the 28th of each month Phone: 388 9920 Cell: 0275174250 Email: nbproject@xtra.co.nz News: nbpnews@mail.com Market: seasidemarket@mail.com
