Free concerts at Tupare Gardens this weekend

Chris Beath from Taranaki Symphony Orchestra

Members of the Taranaki Symphony Orchestra will be playing in the Tupare Gardens this weekend as part of the Garden Festival.
The forecast is for a lovely sunny weekend so this is a wonderful opportunity for the whole family to spend an hour or two wandering around a fabulous garden and to hear some beautiful music - all for free.
The icing on the cake (pun intended) is that members of the orchestra are providing tea, coffee and home made cakes at a very nominal charge.
Come and enjoy......

The Team from Ryman Healthcare Limited

Time spent in respite care can range from a single night to a few weeks. It provides a welcome break and peace of mind knowing that your loved one will receive round-the-clock care from friendly, experienced care teams.

May Kitchen knows how important it is to provide carers with a break. After visiting her husband Stuart in respite care at a Ryman village, she was tempted to move in herself! “If it was me, I think I would enjoy it because it’s just so beautiful and the food is good.”

Ryman villages provide warm and welcoming communities. Where residents can enjoy activities and outings while forming friendships along the way.
