Verse of The Day
“Ko tenei hei whakaaro mo koutou, ko tera i a Karaiti Ihu: Ahakoa hoki i a ia te ahua o te Atua, kihai i meinga e ia te rite ki te Atua hei taonga kapo mai; Engari i mea i a ia ano kia poaha, ka mau ki te ahua o te pononga, ka meinga kia rite ki te tangata; A ka kitea nei tona ahua e rite ana ki to te tangata, ka whakapapaku ia i a ia, ka meinga kia ngohengohe ahakoa ki te mate, ae ra, ki te mate o te ripeka.” (Philippians 2:5-8)

Vision Kerikeri, which seeks to educate and encourage thinking about a vision for our future, has been campaigning since 2004.

"Today we seem poorly prepared to manage this visual, historic and cultural heritage. The permissive basis of the district plan has been exposed as growth-driven largely by ad hoc initiatives by developers.
