From 1 February 2024, you need to put your lids, caps, bottle-tops and spray cans into your rubbish bag or wheelie bin, when new government recycling rules come in.
The Silver Festival is a series of events across the Whangārei District happening between Monday 6 November to Sunday 19 November 2023 to celebrate older adults and acknowledge their important role and contribution to our District.
The Silver Festival is supported by community groups and clubs in the District. Each event offers an opportunity for seniors to explore what’s available, try something new, connect and make new friends, be active, get creative and most importantly have fun!
Facilitated by the Whangarei District Council and supported by our Positive Ageing Advisory Group.
Pick up a booklet from your local library, the airport, Te Iwitahi (Whangarei District Council's Civic Centre) or the Whangarei i-site.
