MILFORD - Everyone's place
Winners, Concerts, Bright Lights, Festivals and Gala Days They are all happening in Milford!
It's hard to believe that we are into the second month of the year already – the holiday season seems to have flown by! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas shared with family and friends and you managed to get a good and relaxing break.
$3000 Kiwibank Spending Spree Winners
Our Christmas $1000 Kiwibank debit card promotion had a huge number of entries and was drawn just before Christmas. Thanks to all our loyal Milford customers for your support.
The three lucky winners were: Prue McKenzie, Heather Stone (pictured) and Jessica Reid (pictured).
ASO Milford Christmas Concert
The Auckland Symphony Orchestra (ASO) ‘Milford Christmas Concert’ at Milford Primary School was a wonderful event and one that the children will probably never forget.
A packed hall was treated to impeccable performances from the students of Milford and Belmont Primary schools to the accompliment of the ASO for some of their items.
Peter Thomas, Director/Conductor, was in fine form, swapping his suit for a Santa costume at one point and had a great rapport with the children throughout, encouraging them during their performances.
The talented musicians in the ASO put on an outstanding concert in a warm family-fun environment they seem to create. I am sure it was an event that was enjoyed by all and one that we will bring back again at the end of this year.
New Lights in Milford
Just before Christmas, with the co-operation of the Takapuna Catholic Diocese, we installed lights on one of the trees in their front yard. At night they look spectacular and add to the other decorative lighting that we have installed over the years to give Milford a bit of character.
If you haven’t seen them yet, come down at dusk and you will be amazed!
