Kia ora Porirua – we’ve heard your feedback on our Waitangi Day hangi and made some changes.
We were caught out by some unexpected online booking fees which boosted the price – so we’ve changed things up and you can now order directly from the Arena, at a cost of $15 per meal.
We’ll be in touch with those who’ve already ordered, to refund the extra they’ve paid. For all future orders, you can call the Arena (04) 2371521 and we can take your payment over the phone or you can pop in to order. Remember there are limited numbers of these so if you don’t pre-order you may miss out.
The hangi is a fundraiser for the Toa Waka Ama club to help them get to the world champs, so we’d love people to get on board.
Sorry it’s been a bit messy and we hope this change is helpful.
