Whakatane & District Historical Society Event

Recently the Whakatane Historical Society and Whakatane Blue Light held a “Grandma’s Picnic” event at Allandale School.

We were ably assisted by students of the Whakatane High School Interact Club.

It was intended to show children the pastimes and games Grandma would have participated in. The activities included egg and spoon races, sack races, three-legged races and musical statues plus there were board games.

Blue Light provided a sausage sizzle operated by Interact students.

Two uniformed police also attended and joined in some of the races. The races proved very popular.

We would like to thank Allandale Schol for allowing us to use their field for the event.
