Godley Cafe NOW OPEN

We may have lost Godley House but thanks to Michelle and Jill we now have Godley Cafe - a licensed cafe/wine bar. Visit Godley Cafe for all the details of this wonderful place.

Sunday Afternoon Music

We are looking forward to another excellent round of Sunday afternoon concerts this summer. Visit Sprig for for updates as they happen.

Visiting Vet - every Tuesday

Paul Williams from Little River Veterinary Clinic visits Diamond Harbour area every Tuesday, making house and farm calls. He can also delivery pet food and health products. Visit Little River Vets

Special Notice for Visitors to Diamond Harbour

Unfortunately Diamond Harbour/Church Bay no longer has a Petrol Station. Be careful .. the nearest petrol station is on Colombo Street in Cashmere or if you go via Gebbies Pass there is a petrol station in Tai Tapu.


Welcome to the new site - we hope you like it. As you can see, we are desperately short of graphic designers 'round here, so if you think you can do better, and have a few minutes to spare, please let the webmistress know!
