Fwd: Christmas Decoration and Curriculum Swap

Please reply to Lauretta Duinkerke <>

Now that we've moved down here, I want to start a food-cooperative with an organic food company so that we can get organic food at trade prices. There are a few conditions to meet, one of which is a minimum monthly order so I need a few other people to join me on this, to make the food co-op work. Do you know anyone who would be interested in joining an organic food co-op? 

Kind regards,

Fwd: Vision and Hearing Service

Good morning,


I am Naomi Riley the new Vision and Hearing Technician, from Greymouth Hospital.


I was wondering if anybody would like to take advantage of our free vision and hearing screening.


This is available to all school aged children enrolled with a schooling provider.


If there are many people keen to use this service I could set up a clinic at the hospital, or complete home visits for families.


Let me know how you would like to use this service.


Kind regards, Naomi Riley

Art afternoon

Hi Folks!

We are having an art afternoon at our place.  We will make a collage mural to hang at Allen Bryant Rest Home.

All ages are welcome, but we will be focussing on younger children and working at their level.

Date: Wednesday 19th June
Time: 1pm
Venue: 32b Providence Drive
  • an art shirt
  • coloured paper (if you have any - plenty has been donated)
  • afternoon tea
  • glue sticks/pva
  • scissors (make sure you label them or tie some wool around the handles for ID.  Our house has a scissor-eating monster.)

Travellers from afar (or anyone!) are welcome to bring their own lunch and eat here before hand.

Look forward to seeing you!
