Whangarei Report - - NEWS -

THE Maun­gat­a­pere In­ter­de­nom­i­na­tional Me­mo­rial Church will re­open af­ter a ma­jor restora­tion project on Sun­day. The event is tak­ing place at 11am, as the day is the cen­te­nary of Ar­mistice Day. The church was built by Maun­gat­a­pere peo­ple to recog­nise those from their com­mu­nity who served in the war, and those who never re­turned. Over the past year, the church has un­der­gone a com­pre­hen­sive restora­tion man­aged by the Lions Club of Man­gakahia and funded bylions, lo­cal busi­ness and res­i­dents, and char­i­ta­ble or­gan­i­sa­tions.
