Opunake's St Barnabas Church will be transformed into a Christmas wonderland in an effort to raise money for Hospice Taranaki this weekend.

The 120-year-old building is one of eight in and around Opunake being used in the Christmas Homes for Hospice event on Saturday and Sunday run by the Opunake Lakeside Lions.

President Kaye Mourie said: "The homes are designed to motivate and excite you for Christmas and give you ideas that you can use yourself.

"These are not designer homes done by businesses."

Church administrator Rosalie Drummond said as a proud supporter of the hospice it made sense to get involved.

Mrs Drummond said a team of Christmas elves had been working tirelessly to create a visual treat for those who ventured to Opunake.

The public can buy an all-venue pass for $25 from a number of stores around Taranaki including Opunake's Pastimes and Sinclair Electrical. Or there is a $5 entry fee at individual venues.

The Lakeside Lions are also running a cafe at the St John's Hall which will feature a light and Christmas tree display.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
