Dear Guest

The countdown is on! Just three weeks left until the launch of the 2018 North Canterbury Business Awards and only one week left to invest in the new Port & Eagle Brewpub in Kaiapoi. This exciting new development will become my second local when it opens later this year. North Canterbury already has Brew Moon in Amberley on the doorstep of our exceptional wine growing region, Waipara. With such outstanding food and beverage on offer along with new cycleways, a calendar of exciting events and a variety of quality retail options, we really do have it all in the North Canterbury region.

Kind regards,

Heather Warwick, CEO
