Too much stock - warehouses bulging and a groaning ....so we need to clear out lots and lots - so good excuse to have a FIRESALE - come on down and grab some clearance deals on Beds, Lounge Suites and Occasional - in fact, we'll just discount EVERYTHING!!!
Anyone with an eMTB (electric mountain-bike) want to do the Queen Charlotte Trail before December 1st?
The plan is falling into place!
Friday 29 Nov – Drive to Picton and stay in cheap backpackers or other suitable accommodation.
Saturday 30 Nov – Take an early ferry (or water taxi) to Ship Cove and Bike to Portage – 50K
We’ve rented a cool place through Book a Bach that sleeps 4. There’s only two beds but there is space on the couch or floor for a reduced rate. 🙂
Sunday Dec 1 – Bike to Picton: 20K to Anakiwa (on QC Trail) and 20K (on road)
Drive back to Nelson in the afternoon
There is an opportunity to do a little more trail riding on the way from Anakiwa to Picton, depending on how much energy everyone has.
Too often we think that picking up litter is someone else’s job - but collecting rubbish is such a simple way we can help our community, the environment and our own health and wellbeing.
This is why Resene is proud to sponsor the “Walk & Collect Weekend” on December 7 and 8. Take a walk over the weekend and collect a bag of rubbish in your community - it's simple but with a collective effort can make a big difference.
It's free to participate and there are prizes to be won - including a $200 Resene Gift Card! Simply head to their event page and register your interest.
A caring community is one that’s there for us in good times, and in our times of need. That’s the community Hoko and Glenda found at Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch.
“The staff are absolutely amazing,” explains Glenda. “They go out of their way to speak to you, to make sure you’re ok.”
Hoko and Glenda feel very fortunate for the support they received when Hoko experienced some health issues. It wasn’t just the village staff who provided support, the whole community rallied around them.
“When I got sick the community itself looked after me,” Hoko explains.
“I can’t speak highly enough of the staff here,” Glenda says.
