Handbook

The intention of the Handbook is to provide awareness of and information about the range of organisations and services which serve the wider Paihia community, so that people can make better use of what is available. Where a service is not available in Paihia, information is given at the nearest point of availability at district, regional or national level. The Handbook does not, however, cover commercial services in the areas of accommodation, retail or tourism.

Apologies to any organisations which have inadvertently been omitted. The Handbook is a work in progress to be added to or subtracted from on an annual basis. Changes or additions are welcomed by emailing info@focuspaihia.org.nz . Locally based organisations can list their officials and describe their activities by completing this form online.
