We still have some tickets for the Habitat for Humanity Op Shop tour on Saturday 5th August. Bookabus are chauffeur driving 30 ladies between 3 of our stores - Ormiston Rd, Panmure and Pukekohe stopping enroute for lunch at Cafe Palazzo in Karaka which includes a glass of wine/coffee or tea. Your guide for the day Marilyn, our Panmure Restore Manager and interior designer, will give you some great tips on how to buy great quality goods for less, how to design a room and, along with Restore Pukekohe's very own Noreen, teach you about antiques. If you are currently redecorating a room bring your paint and fabric samples and let us show you how to take a room from drab to fab. Whether you are a seasoned pro or new to the world of op shopping this is a great opportunity to meet new friends and learn a skill that will save you money. The tour starts at 9am from our Ormiston store - 8 Ormiston Road, East Tamaki and returns at 4pm. We look forward to introducing you to our Aladdins caves that are Habitat Restore! For further information phone Debbie on 022 1239536. Spaces are limited so book TODAY.
Only 10 days to go until the 2019 Emergency Mobile Alert nationwide test on 24 November!
EMAs allow you to quickly receive important information from relevant government agencies if there is a serious risk to your life, health or property. The upcoming test allows NZ Civil Defence to evaluate the system to ensure as many people as possible can receive alerts.
It's Thursday and Dance Yourself Happy is on tonight between 8:00pm and 9:00pm at Howick's, All Saints' Community Centre in Cook Street. Our sessions are not choreographed - just freestyle dancing! All you need to do is move your body to the music and have fun! Fee entry. All ages welcome.
Christmas embodies a real and inclusive generosity that no other time of the year can match. Yes, there is stress, but there is also kindness – to those alone and in need.
If you'd like to help spread some Christmas cheer and put a smile on someone's face, MECOSS welcomes contributions of hand-made or shop-bought Christmas cards crafted with hand written messages, for distribution to elderly people confined at home or an age-care facility this festive season.
A collection box has been placed in the foyer of the All Saints’ Community Centre, 30 Cook Street, Howick. Christmas cards can dropped in the box, Monday to Friday between 8:00am and 4:00pm until 13 December.
Tips: Have fun being creative, fill your message with love, make sure your writing is legible, and please keep the envelope unsealed.
