Our festival The Ides of March was a great success.
We tried having it at a different time this year. But the Ides of March turned out to be a mad March day with cyclone Lusi threatening to spoil things. We decided not to cancel, and had over 40 people brave the weather to join in the fun, and a jolly good time was had by all. Special mention was made in the feedback of the fellowship and friendliness. That, of course, was due to the efforts of our wonderful festival committee of Betty Faeson, Clara Gillanders, Jennifer Lee, Joan Lardner-Rivlin, Beate Matthies, Julia Masters, Pat Bish and Val Bird who worked so hard to make it the success it was. Special thank also to the new Takapuna Community Coordinator, Rachel Bro, fitted into the group quickly and easily and afterwards said how much she had enjoyed working with us.
