Good morning, SunLive readers, and welcome to the first Sunday of August.

It’s less than four weeks until spring, and although it’s still cold in the mornings, a northerly breeze should keep the temperature tolerable today.

The Athenree Railway Station Refreshment Rooms are open for Athenree Teas today between 12pm and 3pm.  People can enjoy an Athenree Tea while taking in the gardens and panoramic views of Tauranga Harbour.

The Athenree Tea is a traditional, freshly baked scone topped with jam and cream accompanied by your choice of tea or coffee. Athenree Tea can be accompanied by a conducted tour through the historic house, situated at 360 Athenree Road. For more information visit

The Tauranga Historical Society is also meeting at 2pm today in the hall behind Brain Watkins House, 233 Cameron Road. The speaker this afternoon is Helen Hamm, who will talking about behind the scenes at the Victoria and Albert Museum. $2 entry.
