“Bark in the Park”, a social gathering for small dogs and their owners was held in Hobsonville recently. It featured a mini dog-agility challenge with prizes for the best dressed dog, the best dog tricks and the best matching dog and owner. This highly enjoyed event was organised by the Hobsonville Community Trust which hosts a range of connection points for the community from summer fun in the park to barn dances, movie evenings and newcomers’ gatherings through to weekly coffee & chat and social indoor bowls. The Trust works closely with a range of partners, Auckland Council, Upper Harbour Board and community groups. It is focused on empowering, supporting, serving and connecting the people of Hobsonville Point and surrounding area. They manage the Headquarters Building and Sunderland Lounge community facilities on behalf of Auckland Council. Visit hobsonville.org.nz for details.
