Benefits of membership

The group meets socially throughout the year at the twice monthly guided walks and monthly get together evenings with a guest speaker, enlighten us on related topics. An annual print newsletter is distributed and monthly newsletters informing of events is emailed out to members


Some volunteers do hands-on work in park,  the Gables gardeners, the asparagus fern weeders, the King Fern gully helpers to name a few.


Raising funds 

Plant sales have raised funds for new gates on Brooklands Drive, to prevent vehicle access as appropriate.

The Friends of Pukekura Park charges a modest annual subscription for membership.  This ensures that members are notified of walks, meetings and other gatherings and matters of interest via email, Facebook and the website. Join us here


The buggy service provides a reliable income through the summer months and the annual spring plant sale attracts both members and public interest and custom.
