July News

Kia ora Timebank Members

Happy Matariki season to you all, hope you enjoyed the sunny and still (although a little chilly) days we had last week, hopefully we’ll get some more in the coming month!

Thanks to those of you who came along and enjoyed hearty soup, warm company and fun games last week at The Petone Depot, it was very pleasant to spend the winter solstice evening with you all.

We also celebrated the Boomerang Bags Petone making of 500 bags at The Petone Depot. We’ve zipped past 600 and heading for another party at 1000. This is a wonderful community collaboration and every week we meet new people who pop in to help. (Every Wednesday, 10-12noon at The Petone Depot)
