Newsletter 29 July 2020

Kia ora everyone,

It’s hard to believe we’re over halfway through 2020. It’s been a crazy year. I saw trees in blossom yesterday so spring is on its way.  

This Friday 31 July we have our Coffee & Conversation group at 10.30am at the Uniting Church hall  at 4 Augusta Street, Redcliffs. Our retiring MP, the honourable Ruth Dyson has booked to attend and Labour potential successor Dr Tracey McLellan will be there too. Any political candidate of any affiliation is welcome to attend our groups. 

Next Friday 7 August from 4 – 6 pm we have our first post-lockdown Happy Hour. This time we have a guest speaker, Kevin Hay, who will be briefly talking about tracking down heritage variety apricot trees. The theme of the event is Midwinter Christmas, and there will be mulled wine! 

Loopy Tunes Redcliffs and Sumner sessions kicked off with good numbers last week. Great to see so many families return. We’re still looking for volunteers to assist with the Sumner session. Both sessions are held on Tuesdays during school term time.  Session times and places are:
Sumner: 9.30am, Puoro-raki, upstairs in the Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre
Redcliffs: 10.30am, Uniting Church hall, 4 Augusta Street
Cost: $2 per child. 

Tea & Talk takes place on Mondays, upstairs in the Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre at 10.30am. Everyone is welcome. 

That’s all for now, folks,
