It’s difficult to fully appreciate the amount of time and genuine care that these volunteers put into the guardianship of the Fairy Tern but from my few hours spent out on the dune it is easy to understand their passion. It’s 16 years since Clayton and I decided to make the Fairy Tern a resounding symbol in our business. At that stage we hadn’t expected the community support the bird would come to receive. This support culminated in the huge amount of love and fierce protection found in Mangawhai being recognised nationwide as the Fairy Tern won the Seabird of the Year 2014.
Although it goes against my nature to boast (really it does), I must say we have created some amazing eye candy here at Bennetts.
Happy days have turned into happy hours at Bennetts! We’ve teamed up with Waiwera Spirits to create an amazing new boozy collection. We think you will agree with us that chocolate and spirits go together like a dream.
Not so long ago, on a cool, grey morning I collected a bucket of water from the beach and began the process of making our own salt.
