Matakana Bus Trip
The trip is on November 3 ($25) leaving the Pioneer Village at 9am with the usual pickups. People can have morning tea (can bring their own or at the cafe) when we arrive at Morris & James, before going on a guided tour behind the scenes seeing how the pots etc are made & decorated. We’ll go into Matakana for lunch (once again buy or BYO) then to the Warkworth Museum where they’ve made quite a few alterations since we were last there. They have a magnificent clothing collection & for an extra $2 they will have the clothing conservator on site to show it to small groups.
