YEAR IN REVIEW: JULY
This week we finish our look back at 2021, remembering what was happening in and around Te Puke from July to December
The first day of July saw the introduction of Western Bay of Plenty’s new kerbside rubbish and collection service. The new regime was intended to make it easier for all households to participate in waste reduction and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. ■■■ Whakaue Marae in Maketu¯ was the venue for the sold-out, third Maketu¯ Matariki Ball, organised by Maketu¯ Hauora. ■■■ House prices in Te Puke reached a new record high, with the median house price at $763,000.
