Arts and Crafts Shop
20 Raumati Road (next door to Raumati Road Pharmacy) in Raumati Village—close to specialty shops and the beach. A great place to find the perfect, locally made gift, or an artwork or craft item to treat yourself.

We’re still here – from home

Kapiti Arts and Crafts Society Shop, workrooms and Kapiti Gallery closure

In the interests of our members and the general public, Kāpiti Gallery and our workrooms at 192 Matai Road will also be closed in the meantime, and we have decided to close our arts and crafts shop at 20 Raumati Road for at least the next 4 weeks.

As soon as we’re “open for business” again, we’ll let you know!

Many of our shop’s volunteer minders are seniors, and with other society members compromised health-wise, we do not have the numbers to keep the shop open just now. (We thank all who have worked in the past week and all have said they were happy with the precautions we put in place.

We wish our valued Shop customers and Gallery visitors good health and hope you remain in good spirits.

AGM


NZ Companies Office re annual general meetings

An incorporated society is required to hold at least one general meeting a year, at which the members approve the society’s annual financial statements. This meeting is usually known as the annual general meeting (AGM). In addition to approving the annual financial statement, the meeting will elect officers (for example, a secretary) and approve any necessary rule changes.
