Celebrating Hamilton Pride Week!

This September Hamilton is celebrating Pride week.

The Village is proud to be part of this celebration of diversity with a family fun day on Saturday September 17th from 11am.

Cafe owner Gen Rorke is excited about the event, ” We’re really looking forward to hanging out with our diverse community of all you solo-parenting, same- sex parenting, opposite sex parenting, kinda-parenting parenting“, she said. 

Those who want to celebrate the rainbow members of their family, and those who want to support and be in it for the fun, head along to The Village Cafe, 1 Rothwell Lane, Whatawhata, Hamilton, 3298.

Green Family Living

We are hosting an evening with Mainstream Green at The Village.

Learn how Nic and Trace from Mainstream Green have come up with easy ways to be more good while keeping it real. It’s better for you and your family as well as the planet. Oh and did we mention you’ll save money too?

Learn from the team at Mainstream Green, tips and tricks from their journey to:
– simplify things at home
– reduce your chemical load
– find solutions for all of the family

Greening your family doesn’t mean you have to compromise your lifestyle.

You’ll leave with ideas and tools to help you make a decision on which One Small Change best suits you and your family.
