Nau mai, Haere mai

We extend a warm welcome to join us at the Quaker Settlement in September.  Come for a day, a weekend, a week or the whole month.  Families, solo, couples, young friends; all are welcome.  Perhaps an experience in a beautiful setting with the family during the school holidays?  Perhaps to stay on for the Intergenerational Nature Weekend on 2-4 October?

Through this challenging period of our Covid-19 lockdowns, we have missed engagement with the wider Aotearoa Quaker community and are offering discounted rates for you to come and share the Settlement with us.  So please come, meet the locals, join in the fun and enjoy the beauty of nature and our Whanganui city.

When you are here there will be many options to join in as you choose….

  • Regular Settlement activities – Meetings for Worship, morning tea, shared meal, movie night, management meeting
  • Or if you would like a quiet retreat, that too is an option. Our library is warm and cozy in the mid-day sun.
  • And if Quaker service is your choice, the Settlement would gratefully receive your contribution to care for the land, the buildings, the workshop or the garden as suits your interests, skills and abilities.

We will do our best to make what works for you, work for us too. This invitation is based on self-catering however it is highly likely a local or 2 will entice you to their home for a meal.  The accommodation options are a unit, the family room, a cabin or the bunk room depending on availability.  You are also welcome to bring a campervan or set up a tent, both of which include use of the ablutions and kitchen. We can arrange pick up from the local airport/bus and bikes may be available for use.

Check our our website if you haven’t visited us previously, which by the way, is all the more reason to come and share in this beautiful space.  The accommodation is offered at heavily discounted rates compared to the standard rates.  There are options and we would love to welcome you.  If you would like more information or to make a booking, send an email to Orlanda and Widge on widgeorlanda@gmail.com or give us a call on 0224 892 102.

Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you at the Settlement in September. PS We have 4 sets of new born twin lambs and more on the way.
