Missing a bunch of keys which were lost between Prole Road and Maleme Street this morning, as unfortunately left on rear bumper.
As of Wednesday 12th of February 2020, My Greengrocer will be delivering to Omokoroa every Wednesday. You may know us from our location in the busy Gate Pa Shopping Centre, The Fresh Market,
Our owner-operator David Stewart became a Greengrocer when he purchased his first store in Orewa in 1978. Following a move to Tauranga in 1987 he started K-Market in 11th Ave which will have been a familiar fruit and vege stop for many long-time Tauranga residents. This store was a huge success and has now become The Fresh Market in Gate Pa.
My Greengrocer, therefore, is an extension of The Fresh Market. Perfect for customers who can’t travel to Gate Pa or just prefer the convenience of shopping online.
Delivery days will be Wednesday only. Where this day falls on a Public Holiday your order will be delivered the next working day.
Cut-off time for orders is 10am on the day of delivery.
Shipping Costs: $5 per delivery or FREE if your order is over $100.
Omokoroa Lions Tertiary Scholarship Winners for 2020
The Omokoroa Lions Club recently awarded their annual Tertiary Scholarships. The scholarships are available to students from the Omokoroa area who have had at least one year of tertiary education. The criteria for the scholarships are academic excellence, the student’s vision of their career path and their economic need. The quality of the applicants was exceptionally high and all students interviewed would have been worthy recipients of the awards. However, the winner of the Beryl Scott Award of $2000 was Anna Jenkin. The winner of the Precious Brothers Award of $1500 was Kristin Brown.
Anna and her family live in Esdaile Road, Pahoia. She attended Omokoroa No 1 school before moving to Tauranga Girls College. Anna was an outstanding student, excelling in all areas of NCEA. As well as her strong academic record, Anna was also a Community Services Prefect, organising fundraising for charities & nearby schools. Anna is also a black belt Martial Arts holder and plays the piano. Anna spent 12 months after leaving school as an Au Pair in London before returning to attend University. Anna attends Auckland University, where she is majoring in Law, and ‘International Politics and Human Rights’ for Global Studies. Her minor is te reo Maori. At this stage Anna plans a career as a Human Rights Lawyer.
Kristin and her family live in Esdaile Road, Pahoia. She attended Pahoia School before moving to Katikati College, where she was a high performing, self motivated student. She had exceptional results throughout high school and was on the Sports Committee, Charity Committee & Mental Health Committee. Kristin attends Auckland University where she is studying a Bachelor of Health Science in Paramedicine. Kristin volunteers with the St John’s Katikati station when she is home. Kristin intends to move back to the Bay when she finishes her degree and hopes to work as an Emergency Medical Technician.

We have a Sunshine Leisure family size tent that we have had for many years and no longer have any use for. It was in good condition when we last used it – some years ago now – and we are offering it, free, to any family or group that might be able to use it.
It slept our family of two adults and four children, and has an awning, and a sewn-in groundsheet, and it’s very solid and strong (and a little heavy compared to modern tents!)
We also have five foam sleeping mats to go with the tent. Contact Alie 021 248 0173

Also used ,but still serviceable, rotary hoe or rotatiller, any propagation gear,eg trays, shelves, irrigation equipment etc.
