      Thank you for your suggestion and support!

      We're currently working through the beginnings of what the future of Tapu Te Ranga looks like.

      As part of the process in the near future we'll be looking at funding and initiatives that may be able to help us with the rebuild - a task that will require a lot of planning and finances.

      We'll be keeping everyone updated via the Tapu Te Ranga Facebook page and appreciate your suggestions and support.

    Can you explain why there was no insurance?

      Tēnā Koe,

      To answer your question insurance premiums became overly unaffordable for the Marae to pay and therefore at the time of the fire the Marae was uninsured.

    Please please please, follow procedure with this rebuild if and I hope it ever happens. The building code is there for a reason, in this case to save lives and mitigate the chance of this sort of thing happening.

      Tēnā koe,

      Thank you for your aroha and well wishes!

      Fortunately no lives were lost due to procedure that was in place.

      The buildings that were inhabited and lost were compliant with council standards.

      We will be working closely with the WCC from now in order to rebuild a safe Tapu Te Ranga Marae, a loving place for our community.

      Thanks again for your support,

      The Tapu Te Ranga Whānau.
