There’s a variety of ways to be part of the Waiatarua community, from discussion to events and activities.

In these pages we list as many of the ways you can join the community.

Please let us know if we’ve missed something.


World famous in Waiatarua, the WRRA HOTMAIL was inofficially trademarked by our long standing president Dave Pocock (1994-2013).

It is a email service to all WRRA members and carries the most important and revlavent local news.  If you want to be informed about local issues then this would be the list to get on.  Simply become a WRRA member and will get the emails and can also quickly get your message out to other members.

Today is is being run by Gary Ertel, our Vice President.

Head here for more information on the WRRA HOTMAIL.


There are two Facebook pages relevant to Waiatarua.

Our research indicates that around 50% of WRRA members use Facebook, so if you want to talk to all WRRA members, WRRA HOTMAIL works best.

Waiatarua Facebook Group

This is a closed but friendly group.  We let anyone join and it has worked very well.

Liz Gozling set this group up in about 2012 and describes it like this:

“Inspired by the success of the Titirangi group, I thought our home in the hills deserved its own page.

Please use the group to ask a questions, start a discussion, or recommend a product or service, for the people of Waiatarua and surrounds.

Please keep discussion positive. This is not the place for rants, raves and complaints.

Any local businesses wishing to advertise are welcome, but not too often. No-one likes their FB feed full of spam.”

Created prior to 2012 this facebook page is an unofficial website of the WRRA.

This website is the official website of the WRRA.


We think Neighbourly is a great idea, but we’ve found a few issues with it, so have put our efforts into maintaining our existing communication services:

  • Waiatarua Newsletter
  • Facebook groups
