About The Grapevine      

In the last 15 years the number of households in our community has increased in size enormously – children attend a number of different schools and adults often work outside the area.  As a way to ensure that the wider community was linked, the Moutere Hills Community newsletter The Grapevine was resurrected in January 2008 and now enjoys great support from the community and local businesses.  Delivered free, to over 1300 letter boxes in the wider Upper Moutere district, the Grapevine is made possible by donations from the readers, community grants and income from advertisers.  Please feel free to donate to:  :  03 1354 0229034 16 – using ‘sub’ as your reference.

Compiled by a small group of volunteers, we welcome anyone interested in contributing in any way you can, either by assisting in the construction or by contributing articles about local history, businesses or identities, notices of public events, and club/sporting notices.  These can be sent to our email address  The deadline is the 15th of each month and we aim to have the newsletter delivered near to the first Thursday of the month.   We also encourage its use as a forum for discussion of local issues and to celebrate the advantages of living in the Moutere.
