Hi there,

We’re so excited to announce the Didsbury Art Trail opening weekend celebrations on the 7th and 8th of March!

The trail is named after Richard Didsbury, a long time director of HLC (now Kāinga Ora) and passionate champion for enriching the public realm with thoughtful urban design and ‘art for everyone’.

The opening weekend is set to be a tonne of fun. Enjoy artist workshops and kids’ activities along the trail, and BYO headphones to try out our new audio tour of the art works. It also coincides with the Catalina Bay Farmers Market’s 10 year anniversary celebrations - the perfect refueling pit stop along the way.

Also in this issue, learn how to make one of Fabric’s most popular dishes at home, and read about the fascinating history behind Hobsonsville Point’s street and place names.

All the best,

The Hobsonville Point Team
