Kia ora folks,

What a great weekend that was!

The Community Gardens folk tell me their Open Day was well received, scones and Devonshire teas with plenty of sunshine- what more do you need?! The Neighbourhood BBQ at the Union St Church was well attended too, again, thanks to a nice bunch of people (you) and super weather.
And the market- what a day! Many vendors sold out by midday and all the visitors ...

That's right, Te Radar is going to be performing here in Brighton as part of the ecoWeekend! (If you haven't got ...

At long last, the face-lift planned for the Mt Pleasant Community Centre website is taking shape.  We intend on rolling out the entire site very soon.  The new MPCC website is far more socially aware, and suits us fine as a community.  One of the newest tools at our disposal is this great new weblog, where we intend on publishing Mt Pleasant News stories as they break.  We also have a new Agenda area, where you can instantly see what is up for discussion.
