Two whales delight in the Sounds

Jennifer Eder Reporter from Marlborough Express

A Blenheim family has been thrilled to spot two whales frolicking in Kura Te Au/Tory Channel. Did you know you can report sightings of whales on the DOC website, or by calling 0800 DOCHOT (0800 362 468)? The reports help with research and conservation efforts. Volunteers are also needed for The Great Kaikōura Whale Count 2022, which runs until July 3.

Support our Yuri Bear Project

Ernest Rutherford Retirement Village

Knitting needles are clicking across our villages and the wider community for the Yuri Bear project🐻❤️.

We’re aiming to knit 20,000 teddy bears for children displaced as a result of turmoil in their country.

We’ve been overwhelmed by the response so far, but 20,000 bears is no small ask!

If you can knit, know someone who can or would like to find out how you can help, please click on the link below.

Dear neighbours,

How many of you remember gardening in school? Hopefully, more students and teachers will be inspired by the great work being done at this amazing school.
