We have released the first edition of our newly revamped Seniors newsletter, which you can read here: officeforseniors.govt.nz...
In this issue we catch up with a veteran fencer, delve into all things insurance and discuss a bit about our Digital Literacy programme, plus more.
As part of a summer series, we are planning on running some top 10 lists for the best foods/places/activities in Christchurch/Canterbury.
Examples could be best summer foods in the region (ice cream, fruit etc), best wineries to visit, activities to try (adventure park, swim spots etc) or anything else that you enjoy to do in our backyard.
Please leave submissions of your favourite summer foods/places/activities and where to find them below in the comments, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Last night on seven sharp a weather man recommended a weather app, weatherpro. I put it on my phone and it changed all my settings. A friend of mine had the same problem. It is also hard to delete. Be wary.
Read about this Dunedin cafe where vegetables from the kitchen has been grown by the owner. The staples of pumpkins, beetroot, cabbage and carrots do well here, he says, with a wide variety of other crops including spring onions, kohlrabi, celery, fennel, kale, potatoes, silverbeet, leek, mint and herbs. Yummy!
