What’s On? Markets & Model Yachts

Just think – if it’s cold, no one else will be at the market, and all the sweet deals will be yours. File photo.

It's very cold this morning.

That's the verdict from anyone who had to get up before sunrise.

Even the MetService agrees, putting Tauranga's 7.30am temperature at 1.2 degrees Celsius – although it supposedly ‘feels' like -2 C. MetService recommends four clothing layers, and one windproof layer – don't say you weren't warned.

Once you're all wrapped up though, why not head outside, where the sun is, at the very least, shining brightly? There are the usual Sunday markets today around the city, with a farmer's market in the Mount at the Phoenix carpark, and ‘a boutique style market with art, handcrafted products, artisan foods, preserves, and delicious brunches' at Oropi. Both run from 9am to 1pm.

Radio-controlled model yacht enthusiasts will also be meeting at the pond behind 24 Montego Drive, Papamoa, where they will be sailing. Adult beginners are welcome to join.

If going outside for long periods of time just isn't your thing today, check out some of the indoor events on below:

Is SH2, between Katikati and Tauranga, a dangerous stretch of road?

Yes, there are too many cars on it and it’s not designed to handle that sort of traffic volume.
No, people just need to slow down and pay attention to their driving.
