Are you looking for an opportunity to contribute to the history of Mercury Bay? To even have your name featuring in the Mercury Bay Museum? Or just to have something to talk about other than COVID-19, the elections in New Zealand and the USA, and the future of Super Rugby? Then why not take part in our campaign to find demonyms for the residents of Matarangi, Kuaotunu, Whitianga, Hahei and Cooks Beach?

Mercury Bay’s Lee family can finally pay tribute to Barbara - their wife, mother, grandmother and heart of their family - with a proper send off on Saturday, 10 October. Barbara June Lee (nee Dutton) passed away unexpectedly on the 22 March, just before the first coronavirus lockdown, which meant that the family were unable to honour her with a gathering until this coming weekend.

On Friday last week, well-known Whitianga resident, Ambuj Uppal, drew the names of the three participants in The Infomer’s Support Local/Buy Local campaign who will go into a final draw where one of them will win $1,000 to spend with one or more of our advertisers.
