Changes to weekend function bookings!

The Village Cafe is available for your private functions. However, due to heave patronage in the weekends we are now only taking bookings for gatherings/ parties on Saturdays not on Sundays.

We still offer a tranquil country setting for your family or business gatherings or birthday party needs and our playground which provides hours of fun! We now have a special weekday rate.

Pop-Up Shops at The Village

The Village is pleased to announce that we are making our cabins available as Pop-Up shops.

These cabins are approx 2.5m deep x 3.5m wide, and are available for short-term rental.

If you have a budding business, a room full of pieces of art, a sports massage practice, or you sell handmade leather hand bags, this could be the ideal space for you to share your work with the wider community!

Our priority will be for locally made products/ services, and will extend to imported goods provided there is sufficient evidence that you are adding value or it is a unique product.

Food products will only be permitted provided the items are made in a certified kitchen, and you have the appropriate food safety certs. Food prepared or served on site and liquor are not permitted.

If you are interested in renting the space, please check out all the info by clicking here!

The Village Welcome Ray White Real Estate!

IMG_1327The Village Whatawhata, have added another service to their growing community.

The growth is thanks to the committment of Dave and Julie Hanna, of Ray White Raglan, who have opened a new office in Whatawhata.

Having decided to add additional real estate options for their customer base, Whatawhata’s growing development and increasing popularity, (for so many reasons; including primary school, locality to the city, and spectacular views), was a logical location to set up shop.

Currently working out of The Village Farm Shop space, while they are closed for their winter Break, Ray White will have their own space onsite at The Village by September, when The Farm Shop re-opens.

The addition of Ray White to The Village is a much welcomed one. The vision of The Village owner, Genevieve Rorke, was that it would be home to several different services for locals, and that is really starting to be realised.

K9’s & Coffee

img_0460The Village Farm Shop along with 4UR Paws, Woofas Doggone Delights and Kool K9 training Ltd would like to invite you and your dog out for a coffee at The Village Cafe.

Shinneal and Megan will be available to help you chose the best treats and accessories for your pooch.

It’ll be a great chance to meet other dog owners, swap ideas on training, and talk behaviour with Joanne, all while enjoying the atmosphere of The Village.

As per council regulations all dogs must be on a lead. And we don’t want any dogs left htied up alone, this is a day for you and your pooch to hang together!
