Payments and Stall practicalities:

Lisa Treeby-Brown, Event Coordinator

All stall holders must comply to our zero waste policy, please contact Lisa Treeby-Brown, Event Coordinator,

The Council is committed to helping improve health outcomes in our community, in particular, the health outcomes of children and young people.  Porirua City Council has introduced a Healthy Drink Policy to help make it easier for children and young people to make healthy choices at our events and facilities. 

This means that we have put restrictions on what drinks can be sold at Council events, particularly those that are aimed at children and young people. This means you are only permitted to sell Healthy Drinks as outlined in the policy

Healthy Drinks include

  • Water as the drink of first choice
  • unsweetened milk
  • drinks with naturally-occurring sugar (e.g.100% fruit juice) in small portion size
  • drinks to which sugar is added at time of consumption (e.g. coffee and tea
  • diet soft drinks (artificially sweetened or zero sugar) in small portion size

The consumption of 100% fruit drinks and diet drinks needs to be limited because they have relatively high acidity levels that contribute to tooth erosion.

At all Council events and functions Council will take reasonable steps to:

  • provide free water e.g. portable water stations, drinking fountains
  • advertise the availability of free water to promote better health
  • encourage bottle refilling to encourage waste minimisation.

Stallholder applications are now being accepted for Waitangi Day 2020.

Please download and review the stallholder information letter, stallholder application form and Zero Waste pledge if you wish to have a stall at Waitangi Day 2020.
