We know it's our first long weekend since June and many of us are itching to hit the roads, but there's no need to rush. Make sure to slow down, buckle up and have a plan so that you can arrive safely to wherever you're going. 💖
If you're getting behind the wheel:
🌧 Drive to conditions
↔️ Keep a safe following distance
😇 Be patient with other drivers
☕️ Take regular breaks to stay alert
⌚️ Allow plenty of time
👉 Use that indicator!

The Climate Forum in conjunction with Nelson City Council are running a joint Repair Cafe on International Repair Cafe Day. The Forum Repair Cafe team are joining with Silver Service Repair Cafe from ReStore and our friends from Mens Shed Waimea with the Mitre 10 tool box are also coming along.
If you would like to be part of this contact Cally 0224 060 206 or Carlo 021 122 9439. If you want to bring some items for fixing - sewing (clothing and crafts), electrical (small household appliances), bicycle repairs, computer hardware and software, wooden toys and furniture etc turn up on the day.
If we are still in Level 2 then there will be standard Covid restrictions in place. Woodwork and bicycle repairs will happen outside the building. Volunteers get coffee, cake and sandwiches. There is an excellent cafe attached to the community centre for those who need refreshments. We are looking forward to getting back into the Repair Cafe groove.
