Tena koutou mo tenei wa Kirihimete me te Tau hou

Rau rangatira ma o te AO TOI,

Tena koutou mo tenei wa Kirihimete me te Tau hou.

Ki a ratou kua mene ki te Po i tenei tau, Moe mai, Moe mai.

Ki a tatou e noho ora nei, kia tupato, kia kaha, ki te tiaki nga tamariki, mokopuna, me nga kaumatua, o nga whanau, mo tenei wahanga o te tau.

Otira,  ko te wawata, ka ahei koutou katoa, ki te waihanga nga mahinga Toi mo te Tau Hou e heke mai nei.

Nga manaakitanga me te Rangimarie ki a koutou katoa.

Nga mihi nui me te aroha,

To our respective artists of Toi Iho.

Christmas and New Year Greetings to you all.

To those who have passed away this year, Rest in Peace.

For the living, keep safe and well to care for our children, grandchildren and the elders of our families, at this time of year.

Needless to say, it is hoped that you will all continue to create more wonderful and inspiring works for the New year.

Blessings and Peace be with you all.

Love and best wishes

Mere Harrison Lodge, Ngati Porou, and Elizabeth, Sandy, Moana, Robert of the Toi Iho Charitable Trust
