Easter Sunday 27th March 2016 at Leigh School
Leigh School Fundraiser: 9am to 2pm, rain or shine. Join us for games, goodies, food, fun, raffles, rides, auctions, activities, stalls, slides, music and much more.
The kids will love boogie boarding down the enormous Ice Slide and we’ll keep them entertained with a host of activities, fun-fair styled rides and games.
Our Quick-Fire Raffles are renowned for the freshest fish, oyster, smoked fish & crayfish prizes. There’s an amazing Silent Auction which is very generously supported by local businesses. Bag a bargain at the auction or hunt for treasures at one of our stalls, including bric-a-brac, plants, fruit and veges, books etc.
The onsite cafe and kai options include excellent local food, plus delicious home baking, Hot Cross Buns and great coffee.
As well as the usual activities at Goat Island check out other things to do!
What do you do in Leigh when the sea is too rough for all our wonderful water activities?
Here are a few things to enjoy:
The track goes up through the bush alongside a little creek, passing water holes and waterfalls. During November the taurepo (NZ gloxinia) is flowering, so see if you can spot some alongside the wooden walkway. Matheson Bay is also the favourite place for swimming by the locals. Take a walk along the shoreline too and look for the amazing fossils
The wildlife seen around our coast lately has been amazing.
Lots of pods of dolphins, a couple of humpback whales, pods of orca and a lonely leopard seal that rested and warmed in the sun on the beach at Matheson Bay.
