19 September 2014 SBUT Newsletter

Hi everyone,

The sun is warming up my new office nicely – it’s good to see the back of winter, although no doubt there’s still a chance of cold weather for a while.

I’m working from several locations these days and these are mentioned below.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday (all day) and Thursday afternoons: Redcliffs Clinic at 2 Augusta Street.
Tuesdays: Sumner Community Hub (the police station) on Nayland Street.
Thursday mornings: The Port Hills Uniting Parish’s Church hall on Augusta Street in Redcliffs for Mini Music and Coffee & Conversation.

As always, I’m likely to be out and about around the community at times too.

I’ve been asked to advertise the courses being run at the Women’s Centre:

Senior Forum
This year we’re taking a different approach to bringing seniors together for an event. This year we’re running a Senior Forum where seniors can get together and talk about what they would like see happening in their communities. It is an opportunity for seniors to talk about what means most to them in their community and let us know what Sumner Bays Union Trust and other local community organisations can do to support them.

When:                  Friday 7 November 2014, 10 am – 12 pm
Location:             Port Hills Uniting Parish’s Church hall at 4 Augusta Street, Redcliffs

Morning tea will be provided and every senior who lives in the area is warmly invited to attend.

Our thoughts are with Rena Dalley and family and the Redcliffs Community Shed as they grieve for Reg who passed away last week. He had a big impact on the community of Redcliffs and will be greatly missed.

Warm regards,
Eddie Hayes
