On the last Saturday of January, the Pohangina/Ashhurst Lions hold an auction. It takes place on a farm 7km from Ashhurst and has been going for a large number of years now. Originally it was set up for people like me, who have a smallholding, to be able to sell their livestock - 1 or 2 sheep, a calf, chickens, whatever, because it wasn't possible, at the time, to sell small numbers at the big auction places.
I hadn't been for a few years, but have always enjoyed meeting up with people and sometimes bidding on goods.
Here are some snapshots of the day:
Here is the queue for the hamburgers and sausages:
I had a great day!
