On the last Friday of every month (with the exception of December) MAVtech runs a film night in conjunction with 'Blast from the Past Cinema'. The Museum opens at 6pm for viewing of our historic technological items, Entry $8.00. Then at 7pm we screen a variety of short films including old news reels (the way we used to get the news before TV), sports, cartoons, comedy and general interest. Finishing at about 9pm. Come and meet some new and interesting people.


On the last Sunday of every month unless specified otherwise, at the Manawatu Hotel in Foxton. All are welcome!
Our prime objective is to reintroduce more water from the main river channel into the Loop. To this end we are gradually making progress towards establishing a new channel from the river into the Loop from just West of the power boat ramp and running north for about 400m to the loop. We are a volunteer group that is dedicated to seeing our river restored to its' original beauty and make it more usable for our local community.
For further information contact Jeremy Manks, or phone 027 273 3836.


Our frequency is 88.3FM.
Ph. 363 7734.
We run 24/7 and have a listenership as far as Waiterere, the Himitangi turnoff, Foxton and Foxton beach. Depending on your aerial some folk on the edge of Levin, parts of Shannon can also receive us. We play country music, with a touch of rock and roll and popular music. The station has 7 regular DJs who will take your requests when they are doing their shows. We do the news, weather and tides and community notices including Civil Defense notices several times a day.
