Film and roast dinner at Westwind $40*
This is a very popular venue you have probably visited before. For many years the Ryders ran a museum full of the most amazing collections in the garden of their property at Avondale. This closed some years ago but there is still a boutique movie theatre holding about 60 people, along with an eating area where a homestyle roast dinner cooked in an old wood stove gives you some idea of what the hospitality would have been like in early colonial days. At present we have no idea what the film is likely to be. Ngaire should be able to tell you when you book.
Pick up from the Pioneer Village at 9am, Loop Rd 9.10, West Hoe Rd 9,15
Please phone Ngaire (424 8615) before August 25th.
*please note that if we have fewer than 26 people booked on the trip the cost will be a few dollars more.
The Pioneer Village will be open for each weekend of the Auckland Heritage Festival (30 Sept & 1 Oct, 7-8 Oct, 14-15 Oct) with a special exhibition devised by Elaine Dickinson and Christine Carlyle of the Hibiscus Coast in the 1930s
