Do you find communicating with others an insurmountable task?
Are you undertaking a committee or leadership role in a organisation and would like to build your confidence?

Why not come along an enjoy an evening or two with us - have a cuppa and some nibbles.
What’s the worst that could happen?

That fear can be tamed - repetition is the key!
It’s a little like climbing Paritutu Rock - terrifying to start with, but after repeated attempts the fear starts to fade. Then it becomes FUN!

Meet us at the Bellringer Pavilion, Pukekura Park from 7:30-9:30pm
Wednesday 30th October
