Welcome to our newsletter

Kia ora e hoa, it’s nearly the end of 2021! In this pānui we think about summer and share our most-read stories of the year.

Best wishes for the holidays

Our holiday message to you.

Ko te manako ka pārekareka, ka whakatā hoki koutou ko ō koutou whānau i ēnei hararei. E mihi kau ana te Poari me ngā kaimahi o Ngā Taonga. Kua whakaritea e mātou tētahi whakaaturanga e titiro ana ki ngā tūmahi ā-Raumati o ngā tāngata o Aotearoa, ā, kei te aha hoki koutou?

We hope you and those you care about have a fun and relaxing summer. Best wishes from all of us at Ngā Taonga. We’ve put together a short compilation looking at New Zealanders working on summer projects – what are you planning on getting up to?
