Raglan Area School

Amber Hartstone (RAS) & Phil Shea (Te Uku) are parents interested in pursuing a combined Ag Day. If interested, please contact them directly.

"We are wondering if any families would be interested in a Raglan Area Combined Ag Day for lambs and goats only. This would be a parent-run event independent of the local schools.

At this stage, we want to know likely numbers so if viable we can go ahead and organise a venue and judges.

The dates we are considering are either Saturday 13th October (last weekend of school holidays) or Saturday 20th October (the Saturday of Labour Weekend).

Email p.j.shea@xtra.co.nz to register your interest and preferred date.

Thanks, Phil Shea 8257260 and Amber Hartstone 8257012"
