Well done to our awesome Pukehou Bus Group for another successful Firewood working bee held yesterday. The team were working away to cut another six chord for sale. All proceeds go to the operation of our School Bus.

A huge thank you to all the volunteers who assisted and to the Seligman's for the generous donation of the wood.
