Photo: ALAN JORDAN COLLECTION, HELENSVILLE MUSEUM Last minute details are being finalised before Kaukapakapa celebrates its 150th anniversary this weekend. Saturday's luncheon is sold out and organiser Isla Willis says they're bursting at the seams. It is a very popular event but unfortunately we just cannot accommo- date any more in the Kaukapakapa Hall.'' There are still tickets available for tomorrow's mix and mingle evening. Sunday's preparations are also well set. The combined church service at 10am at the Kaukapa- kapa Hall will be preceded by parades from the Kaukapakapa Church in Peak Rd and St Cuthbert's Presby- terian Church. Parades leave at 9.30am on foot or horse and trap. Local piper Andrew Hayward will head St Cuthbert's pro- cession, and vintage cars will accompany parish- ioners from Peak Rd. A powhiri led by Nick Rata and received by John Osborne will be held. Refreshments are avail- able at the end of the ser- vice, along with the cut- ting of a cake. Saturday's historical trail is a popular feature of the celebrations. Included is the 104- year-old Makarau Hall which will feature a curated display of his- torical artefacts from the Makarau-Kakanui- Kaukapakapa areas from noon. Light refreshments available. Inquiries to Christine Pikett on (09)420-4042. You can buy a map from the Kaukapakapa Hotel and take your car to visit 15 places of inter- est in the area. Sunday afternoon is the district picnic at Sinclair Park, opened on the 100th anniversary of Kaukapakapa in 1960. The picnic is supported by voluntary organis- ations throughout the district and will bring an afternoon of fun and games for kids of all ages. Organiser Norm Mac- lachlan has included a host of traditional events, including gum- boot throwing, sack races, obstacle relays, pony rides, bouncy cas- tle, face painting and a water slide. We haven't forgotten the adults,'' Norm says. See mum impress in the three-legged races and dad break 30 seconds in the 100 metres dash. We're hoping for good weather and an enjoy- able afternoon. Everyone throughout Rodney is welcome.'' Refreshments, ice- creams, sausage sizzles and food are available. The site, donated by the Sinclair family, is an important centre for sports and recreation and is also the home of Kaukapakapa's Play- centre Group.
