Roger Childs reports the proceeds from the Strawberry Festival help to pay for the services hospice patients need – doctors, nurses, therapists, pain-relieving medication, counselling, home visits and much more.
Saturday 23 November 9.30am – 3.30pm
This year it’s all been happening in the grounds of Kapiti School on Rimu Road opposite the Council Building and the Library in Paraparaumu on Saturday, November 23.
There was a gold coin donation on entry. This donation goes to Mary Potter Hospice.
The Festival is about the community coming together to display the uniqueness of the Kapiti Coast. It focuses on a fun family day with something for all.
Food, stalls and entertainment for all the family
There were about 100 stall sites selling and promoting different goods and services — from art and crafts to plants, lawn mowers, and outdoor furniture, to environmentally sustainable items.
As well as the stall sites, there were competitions, bouncy castles and carnival rides — plus two food demonstrations.
Then there was of course the famous Mary Potter Hospice Strawberry Sundae which is always a must.
