What do we do?

Hannah Cunningham from Volunteer Marlborough

Many people know that Volunteer Marlborough recruits volunteers, but you may not know what else we do. Basically, we support volunteers and volunteer-involving organisations, groups, and projects around Marlborough. This means we run training workshops, organise a community awards function, provide mentoring, promote volunteer opportunities, share resources, provide networking opportunities, and advocate for the inclusion of all volunteers.

For more information, visit our website (www.volunteermarlborough.org.nz...) or get in contact with a member of our team: message us via social media, call/txt 021478330, or email vm@volunteermarlborough.org.nz

How affordable is travel within NZ?

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone, I'm Lorna, a Stuff travel reporter. We're doing a story on how affordable travel within NZ is. For those of you who have travelled within the country post-lockdown, we'd like to hear whether you've been able to find suitable flights, accommodation and activities within your budget. Do you think accommodation providers and tourism operators are doing enough to entice New Zealanders to explore their backyard? Please let us know in the comments below, your message may be used in our story.

Are you ready to get Upcycling?

Resene

The Resene Upcycling Awards are coming back this month, the third year in a row! Watch this space and get prepared for the announcement; there are great prizes up for grabs.

Upcycling is the term used for taking a preloved item and transforming it - whether it's for a new purpose altogether, or just to give it an ‘extreme makeover'. Consider using the school holidays to get Upcycling with the smaller members of your household - or use the next rainy day to drag out the paint and your creativity!

In the meantime, check out some of the creative cookies from last year.
