Noticed anything different?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

It's te wiki o te reo Māori, and to celebrate this awesome initiative, we've given our logo a little update.

Are you keen to dive straight into te wiki? Here's a video by our mates at Stuff showing five te reo words that every person from across the motu (country) needs to know.

Garapa Decking timber

Kylee from Avonside - Dallington
