It’s quite remarkable, given all that our community experienced as a result of Covid-19, that here we are in Te Tauihu and throughout the country getting out and about enjoying recreation as though the effort and commitment by all over the past several weeks was just a dream. But a dream it was not. It was a quite stressful time for so many families, and for business owners and leaders, so I must acknowledge all our Sponsors and Members who have committed to the TRU at this time.
