Community Planting day
Sunday 2nd October
9.00am – 12.00pm
An invitation from the Foxton Beach Progressive Assoiciation to pop along to the  Community Planting Day to be held  in the dunes at Foxton Beach via the Pinewood Road entry to the estuary to plant Spinfex in the Dune Garden.  This is one of the most common plants grown in the sand dunes along the coasts of Africa, Middle East, Asia, Australia and
New Zealand.  Spinfex helps stablise the sand and is an important part of the entire sand dune ecosystem.

Dinner service is available on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6pm .  We are still working to Level 2 guidelines meaning  100 guests at any one time, seated dinner service, masks to be worn when you are at the bar.

Have a great week
