I am the co-ordinator of the Cambridge Community Garden. This garden is a great asset owned and operated entirley by volunteers from the community. At present it is very productive. You can collect or pick your own fresh spray free produce at any time - just do a task on the whiteboard, swap your extra produce or preserves or leave a donation. We will help you stay healthy and beat the supermarket prices.
If you would like to volunteer I am at the garden every Wed. and Sat. morning from 8am to 10.30am.
I am also a resident in Resthaven Retirement Village and manage the Craft Room there.

If you’re wearing dentures, it’s important to be mindful of the foods you eat. Some foods can be difficult to chew and may cause discomfort or damage to your dentures. Here are some foods to avoid when wearing dentures:

- Sticky foods like chewing gum
- Hard, crunchy foods like raw vegetables, fruit, crackers, popcorn, crusty bread, and whole nuts
- Stringy meat

Remember, when you first get your dentures, it’s best to stick to soft foods that don’t require a lot of chewing.

Gradually transition to solid foods, but be sure to cut them into small pieces and chew slowly. Avoid holding any drink in your mouth for too long as it could loosen the bottom dentures. And don’t forget to avoid spicy foods as they can irritate sores that may exist underneath the false teeth on your gums.

The Waikato Catchment Ecological Enhancement Fund supplies plants and pest control kit.

The Waikato Hauraki Conservation Fund is a ‘gap filler’ for things that volunteers need that are not usually funded.
