ENJOY Telethon Do you make art? Are you dying to donate your art via telethon run by the Trust Us Contemporary Art Trust (TUCAT) at Enjoy this summer?

Peat Park, Aramoho now has a sparkly new toilet! It's been decades since there was a functioning loo at this lovely park (a long time to have to wait for a toilet!) so we're thrilled to announce that one is up and running again.

Now everyone is talking about the weather and sitting in Whanganui right now it is a bright sunny day if a little breezy. It would be wonderful on the Whanganui Riverbank listening to some great music and enjoying a great afternoon. If for any reason there is a change of plan because of the weather we will let you know but at the moment it is looking like a bright sunny day.

Look who is arriving in one sleep. Can't wait to meet the DC-3 at Whanganui airport tomorrow at 6.30pm to give them a big old welcome. And I hear a 1929 NASH and a 1938 DODGE will be there to pick the crew up in true Whanganui style. Vintage all the way! BOOM.
