The Tairawhiti Coffin Club’s bi-annual open day on Saturday at their base in the BCR Cabinets and Joinery Services premises in Gladstone Road was once again a great success, “We had a steady stream of interested people visit the club premises,” said club secretary Taranga Kent.

“This local community initiative can be utilised by our club members to reduce funeral costs. They can produce their own personalised coffin as part of end-of-life preparation in a very social, supportive environment.”

The club now has more than 100 members.
