Whitianga residents and visitors will be treated to a sea of sails this coming weekend (Saturday 15 and Sunday, 16 February) as the Mercury Bay Boating Club (MBBC) hosts the annual Waikato Centreboard Championship Regatta.

Their members learn digital photography, genealogy, the latest smartphone tricks, even how to find the best crafting patterns online, and now SeniorNet Whitianga are on the hunt for enthusiastic people who can offer a skill, lend support or provide practical help to keep the dynamic club functioning smoothly.

On his way to Ohinau Island, Patrick Crowe of Wildlife International Limited (WMIL) popped into The Informer’s office on Monday this week to talk about the flesh-footed shearwater research WMIL is undertaking on the island.

On Friday afternoon, 24 January, Diana Campbell-Barnaby passed away at home in Wharekaho after a long battle with cancer.
