What is Franklin Life?

Everyone that lives in Pukekohe and the Franklin area loves it because of  the multi-cultural population, shopping, cafes & restaurants, sports clubs, secure neighborhoods, unique businesses and the amazingly friendly people!

The district is growing at a great rate and keeping track of events happening in the area or the best park to picnic or even a local business is a day to day mission.

1-DSC_0005.NEFI chronicle events that happen in Pukekohe and the surrounding areas of Franklin District.

Subjects range from sporting events, Saturday morning walkabout town, tourist sports, police promotional events, calf club day, charity runs and other community based events.

I have added an events calendar and local business directory to photo news to create ‘Franklin Life

This gives you a website that can inform you of upcoming events, provide a preview/review write up with pictures/video and a local business directory.

“My goal is to visually document what’s interesting about our area and encourage people to spend their time locally so as to encourage local business and community to grow and thrive” – Dave Pope [/responsivevoice]
