Talking Takapuna

Winter is here but in Takapuna the heat is on as we welcome all rugby fans!

Takapuna is once again backing black and we encourage everyone to join in the fun. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram @ilovetakapuna or check out our website to know which local businesses are showing the test matches and what specials are on offer for fans. We will also be looking for the best #takapunabackingblack fans with heaps of fun prizes up for grabs. So paint your face, ready your props, practice your best pose, and use #takapunabackingblack!

After June, get ready for our Winter Festival which will run from July to August. Takapuna will be buzzing with activities, from the winter shows at the Bruce Mason Centre and The PumpHouse to exciting events at many of our hospitality providers. I Love Takapuna will also be 'lighting up' everyone's winter with surprise installations and activations.

We also call on everyone to shop, shop, shop this winter as we hold our Winter Shop & Win promotion from July to August where we will be giving away a week-long trip to an exciting destination. Think warm weather, great food, and retail therapy that will not break the bank. We'll be announcing all the prizes we will be giving away in next month's article!

We also welcome Poké Poké, the newest addition to Auckland's hippest laneway, Fortieth and Hurstmere. Build your own poke bowl filled with your favourites and made with only the freshest ingredients or choose one of their pre-created "purpose bowls" – carefully curated to help you achieve your health goals.


Don't forget to share with us on social media @ilovetakapuna your stories, photos, and videos, this month. We'd love to see them!
