That’s all Folks! Our Summer Season of 2017-18 has come to an end, thanks to everyone who came and had fun together, and a massive thanks to all our supporters and sponsors:
Grants: South Wairarapa Creative Communities Scheme, South Wairarapa Rotary, Featherston Community Board, Lee Carter & A. Nonymous
Offers of financial support we didn’t need in the end but REALLY appreciate: Martin the Baker, Jude Kernahan ‘Hey Jude’, Featherston’s Own Trust
Gold Stars to: Emily Greenberg, Pat Bleakley, Chris Miller, Leo Klafke, Renze Bijker, & Featherston School
Also big love to: Saali Marks, Sandy Fletcher, Featherston Library, Kim Potter, Fab Feathy, and everyone who pitched in and helped along the way xxx
Featherston First Fridays create an opportunity firstly for fun times together as a community, with music being key. Linking together creative events, social networking, and encouraging use and ownership of public spaces. Each month has a different flavour and the concept evolves organically, in the spirit of a Fringe Festival.
Bring.. a picnic, sunscreen, your chess set, a pizza or fish n’ chips, friendly and well behaved dog on a leash, a picnic blanket or cushion, your dancin’ shoes…
Leave.. as a South Wairarapa Distric Council public space, the Squircle is designated smokefree, and it is within the Featherston Town Centre liquor ban area..
We’re delighted the Cross Creek Railway Society will be running their Mini Train rides during each First Friday event! (photo via Twitter- nb horse may or may not be present!)
FFF (Rebekah and Martine) will continue to organise and co-ordinate the main community party each month: if you have an idea for a satellite First Friday event, and would like work with us and promote this as part of First Friday, we’d love to hear from you.
