Wanted: Stallholders offering
locally produced,
quality products

Thames Rotary and Goldfields have teamed up to develop a monthly farmers market located in the heart of Thames. 
Currently the two organisations are seeking interest from parties that may wish to establish a stall at the proposed market.
As a fund-raiser for the Rotary Club of Thames, all proceeds from the market will be returned to community projects.
Those behind the concept said the focus will be on locally produced quality products. Food and beverages will headline the market while consideration will be given to other items which will enhance the market experience.
Rotary Club spokesperson Susanna Kruger said both the club and Goldfields want to provide an opportunity for local producers to display and sell from market stalls to residents and visitors.
She said Goldfields provided a central location along with the opportunity of the market not being impacted by weather as it could be housed indoors if required.
“The thing for us now is to determine potential stallholders and have discussions with them to get them on board.
“Market day will be the last Sunday of each month with stalls being open from 9am to Noon.
“We believe this is an excellent opportunity not just for Thames, but our entire region. We have taken consideration from other successful Farmer’s Markets throughout New Zealand and believe Thames, the Coromandel Peninsula and Hauraki Plains is perfect when considering our many local
producers combined with support from our residents and visitors.
“Quality and fun are two key drivers for us,” said Susanna.
Rotary and Goldfields now want to hear from any producers who are interested in finding out more and potentially having a stall at the market.
Those interested can contact John Freer at 0274839426 or [email protected]

Thames Community Centre

One of the things we do at the Thames Community Centre is to help Thames folk to get their driver’s licenses. We fundraise to pay for lessons, defensive driving courses and license fees, we’ll also help with getting photo ID’s and other documents needed to sit the tests. The people that receive this assistance give an agreed amount of voluntary time back to the community and the centre organises this. We have people volunteering here at the centre
and with other organisations we work with.
We realised some of the learner drivers couldn’t move to restricted because they didn’t have a car or qualified driver to practice with. So thanks to Wayne Richards and Valley Toyota the centre now has a car it can use for practice and we’ve got some great fully qualified drivers
– we call them our mentors -
who will help the drivers with their practice.
We’ve just begun the first group of learners in the practice car and we are looking for more people who want to get their restricted, need some assistance and are willing to do some volunteer work. Please get in touch with the centre at [email protected] ,
or text Jeff at 0278689797
to set up an appointment at the centre.

Support your local community groups!

We are building a Donations Page,

support the work you do.

Seagull Centre Thames


The Seagull Centre is an award-winning, registered charitable trust and has been operating from the Thames site since 2004.
Operating as a social enterprise, the Seagull Centre is a community recycling and resource recovery facility generating revenue from the sale of goods and materials contributed by the local community. By diverting waste from landfill, the Seagull Centre is a self-funded operation providing local employment and affordable goods. The centre also provides education and training services on enviromental management and assisting training students into work. Where possible, the centre also contributes goods and grant funding to other organisations.
The Seagull Centre has gone through a major development to establish a Resource Recovery Park and will effectively be doubling operations to significantly increase it impact of waste diversion from landfill. A workshop is part of the expansion where donated goods can be reconditioned or upcycled for sale.
The Resource Recovery Park development has included the relocation (recycling!) of two disused classrooms from a local primary school which are used for workshop space and skills training in the repair and rejuvenation of furniture, appliances and other equipment.
Domestic traffic bound for the Refuse Transfer Station to dump unwanted goods is now directed through the expanded Seagull Centre where staff will help customers sort out furniture and equipment that can be sold at the centre's shop or reconditioned in the new workshop.
If you are interested in being involved as a volunteer, call into the centre and talk to our staff. It is regarded as one of the most popular businesses in town and there is always lots happening.

Thames Museum

Twenty eight years ago, 6th March 1994,
the Suffrage Memorial Garden was opened on the Thames Museum Reserve as part of celebrating
100 years of women having the right to vote in NZ.
The garden was opened by Mayoress Joan Thompson
and dedicated by Archdeacon Graham Colley.
Mrs Pam Gwynne and her daughter Jeannie
provided planning assistance.
Today, the garden is 'tired' and in need of a revamp.
Thames Museum volunteers have accepted the challenge!
We will provide updates on progress,
with information as to how you may be able to help.

Thanks to Thames Library
for the background info and photos.
