When life gets busy, it is easy to be consumed by the practical things that are needed to get on with life.
Often the practical things take precedence over doing activities with family and friends that are enjoyable, fun or new. If you want to try something new in term 4 there are lots of wonderful options available.
We have done some exploring of local groups and activities and want to take the opportunity to share the great variety with local whānau. There are plenty of free or low cost options so why not make the most of what our awesome community has to offer.
