This year Paparimu playgroup hosted its 14th annual possum hunt. The fundraising event draws people from the community and beyond who spend the weekend trapping and shooting possums and other pests. There are prizes for the most possums, the best possum coat, for the heaviest possum and for rabbits, hares and other wild things. The possums are plucked, the fur sold and the money is given to the playgroup.
