Newsletter Update –  31st July 2020
Blue Lake Eatery - Saturday the 8th 7.30pm
Wondering what to do on Labour Weekend? Why not come to Fairlie for some food, entertainment and shopping? Support New Zealand businesses at this NO ENTRY FEE event on Sunday, 25 October being held at the Showgrounds. 
Why are we organising the Mackenzie Highland Spring Fling? We were so disappointed that we had to cancel our annual Easter Monday Show. It was disappointing for many and a huge financial blow to those businesses which support us. To support them, we are offering FREE REGISTRATION to all businesses and food/coffee stands who want to attend. We want to give back to the businesses and to our wider community. We are finalising entertainment- some non-A&P competitions, music, demonstrations, etc. We are looking for any ideas for free/inexpensive entertainment and after we have a better idea of what is on offer, we will update you on our website Any help from you in spreading the word about this event would be much appreciated! 
For more information, or to register your business or entertainment, please contact the Secretary
Look after each other

Remember that this is a still ( and will continue to be for quite some time ) a very challenging time for people in our community including business owners.    Please keep in touch with your friends, pop over for a coffee or even give them a quick phone call.

WHATS ON - we need YOUR help.

So now that we have a calendar it would be FABULOUS to add some events for visitors.   You can see here or at  that we have added Ice Hockey games and practice nights - visitors love local events. 

To include your event, please email us with the details.  It would be great to add some more events on there, golf matches , functions, races etc etc, maybe a special event that you are planning at your accommodation Even if you're not sure send it through and we'll check it out.
We have visitors emailing us already regarding the events on our calendar so get in amongst it Tekapo !

Thank you Tekapo for such a great turnout you have supported a local business and your TPBA by attending.  Everyone had a fabulous night and danced until their feet ached.
