Mt Eden Village Centre In March

Mt Eden Village Centre In March

In this newsletter we have a focus on some of our iconic March events at the Mt Eden Village Centre.  Feel free to forward this newsletter on to anyone who may be interested as there is something for all age groups.

You are invited to our much loved Little Day Out free family fun day here at the Mt Eden Village Centre this Saturday 2nd March.  Events and workshops run from 10.00am to 1.00pm so bring the kids, the grandkids and those young at heart to celebrate our Mt Eden community.  This is a free family event with a children’s flea market, animal zoo, free pony rides, workshops, animal blessing, a children’s art competition, face painting, a magic show and much more. 

There will also be delicious food from around the world to enjoy as well as live music.  For those young ones with an artistic bent, create an artwork of a NZ native animal out of any medium and enter it into our Art Competition!

The Little Day Out is organised by the Mt Eden Methodist Church Charitable Trust and the Mt Eden Maungawhau Village Centre Society, with generous support from Ray White Mt Eden, the Albert-Eden Local Board and local businesses to celebrate the great community we live in.  Programme details and Art Competition information are listed at the end of this newsletter and on our website here.

Another iconic annual event in the Village is the Artists in Eden Day on Saturday 16th March.  Based in Essex Reserve and spilling over to the Village Centre, you can watch Artists at work creating stunning works from 10.00am to 2.00pm.  This is followed by an Auction of these works at 2.30pm.  Come along and talk to the Artists or watch an artwork progress from start to finish.  This is a jewel in the Eden Arts calendar and we are so fortunate as a community to celebrate more than 30 years of Artists in Eden.  Information about the Artists and the event is here.

The Mt Eden Village Craft Market is here on the second Saturday of every month.  Next Saturday 9th March, pop in from 10.00am to 4.00pm.  There will be a great variety of interesting stalls to browse.  A feature of the Market is that items are handmade in New Zealand by expert crafters.  It’s an opportunity to support local artists and find loads of beautiful handmade treasures and tasty treats, perfect for yourself or to gift.

Our regular Mt Eden Wellbeing Market is here on the last Saturday of every month.  This month it is Saturday 30th March from 10.00am to 3.00pm.  Central Auckland’s regular monthly mind, body and spirit Market has natural health therapies, advice and nutritional support, on-site massage, natural first aid kits and home remedies and much, much more.  More information is here.

The Mt Eden Methodist Congregation invites you to join them every Sunday in their beautiful historic Church.  Services are held at 10.00am with tea afterwards in the Lounge.  On the 3rdSunday of every month we have the Fiji-Indian Fellowship worship service at 3.00pm.  Everyone is welcome.

Coffee with a Cop will be here next Thursday 7th March from 10.00am to 12.00noon.  Pop in and have a chat to our local Community Police Officer, they would love to meet you and talk about what is going on in your neighbourhood.
