Welcome to Cheviot
Cheviot is a small friendly town that occupies the rolling farmland between two of the South Island's magnificent braided rivers and the Pacific Ocean. While small in stature, Cheviot has attractions and services well beyond its size.
Big blue skies and fresh country air are the base notes for this slice of paradise. The pace is relaxed, crowds are few. Cheviot village is the economic and social hub of this largely rural community of around 1,500 people, where "old fashioned" community values sit comfortably alongside the town's growing art scene and attractive cafes.
Cheviot enjoys a full range of shops and services while just down the road is Gore Bay, one of the South Island's top surf spots and a popular destination for families to swim, explore the rock pools at low tide, fish and dive. The Hurunui and Waiau rivers offer premium salmon and trout fishing and the delicious whitebait.
Check out the Domain at the south edge of town on the coast side, wonderful in the spring with abundant Daffodils.
An organising committee are in the planning stage to organise a reunion for Labour Weekend Saturday 25 to Monday 27 October 2014.
More details will be posted as they come to hand but in the meantime if you are interested in helping in any way or can provide information please contact Rachel Butler.
The weekend might include a family day at the Domain, an event of some kind at Gore Bay, a semi formal dinner and entertainment for the kids such as face painting, pony rides etc. If you are able to offer any assistance please contact Rachel.
