Tāhuhu panel, a potential hazard delays the completion of the rebuild

by Waipapa Marae Trust

Our builders have discovered the framing of the existing Tāhuhu ridge pole in Taku Hiahia was a potential hazard in particular the ridge/spine decorative MDF panels fixed to the underside of the apex at the ceiling of the wharenui (pic above).  The existing sub-standard timber framing was a safety hazard with small framing members and small nails used to fix it to the main structural roof elements. Consequently, the timber framing had to be removed.

A friendly reminder about health and safety during the festive season

from the Waipapa Trust

We all know the kiwi trifle is a winner at this time of the year and it always will be.  But I witnessed an apple crumble second to none.  I had gorged on freshly minced cream pāua first and then jumped straight to the crunch of the apple crumble with custard and ice cream.  And that was the end of my Christmas menu but it was good to be with whānau.  

While on that note, if you're in Kāwhia whānau, enjoying the beautiful weather, please be aware, the marae is off-limits
