Our marae are busy centres of whanau and hapu life. They play host to numerous whanau gatherings; cater for community hui and events; and manaaki visitors from around the motu. For marae to continue to play an important role in our lives, they need our support to keep maintained and fully functioning.
Electricity bills need to be paid; pillow and sheets need to be replaced; the marae’s mower needs to be repaired; the ablution block needs to be upgraded: the list of tasks to be checked off is never-ending.
To help our marae commitees and marae whanau to support our marae, we have gathered a kete of resources and advice together below. If you have more information to add to this kete please contact us here.
