Sadly, the Marae perished in the early hours of a windy Sunday morning on the 9th June 2019 in a raging fire. The fire was caused by embers from an extinguished bonfire. We were thankful that no lives were lost during this incident.
We acknowledge the assistance of emergency services, Government and community agencies, Mana Whenua, Wellington City Council and the wider community. We are most grateful to the courageous Fire Fighters from across the region and Fire and Emergency NZ.
The whānau are determined to rebuild the Marae and nohokāinga (Marae housing). We are overwhelmed with the support we have received through koha donations and offers of help. We embark on a journey to plan the rebuild of a new Marae and Nohokāinga. Please follow us on Facebook to be part of our journey.
