Happy Anniversary River Haven

by | Nov 10, 2023

A personal message of gratitude from Noel & Liz.

A year ago Ngatimoti didn’t have somewhere our neighbours could meet and chat, enjoy locally sourced food in a convivial atmosphere and experience great local beers and wines. Our team has created an outdoor Cafe, General Store, Clubhouse Restaurant and Olde World Pub in just 12 months!!

How has this been possible? Because from Day 1 Liz and I listened to our neighbours and learnt what they felt was missing in this unique valley at the Top of The South and then we made it happen.

Has the last year been stressful?-at times of course. Has it been worth it? -undoubtedly.

What does the next 12 months hold for River Haven? Frankly we’ve no idea because, like life itself, we’re making it up as we go along! The only certainty is that with the tremendous support building throughout the region River Haven will become an even more vibrant venue full of love, laughter and positive energy.

To all of you who’ve welcomed us to the Valley with unconditional encouragement and wonderful support we extend our heartfelt gratitude.

Noel & Liz
