Activities Blog April to June 2023



Hello from Activities!  Hope everyone is coping with winter!  It has certainly been wet but we have been keeping nice and dry and warm.

April was a busy month with Easter, doing crafts and handing out Easter eggs.  We then moved on to celebrating Anzac Day where our themed tree was put up in the lounge and decorated with remembrance.  We were lucky this year to have Frank Lundberg for our Anzac Day service.  We remember and appreciate those that have given so much for our country.

In May we celebrated the Kings Coronation with a high tea where we all wore our ‘crowns and best hats. The next week we appreciated all the ladies of the house for Mother’s Day with another morning tea and a little gift on Sunday.

We have also managed to secure another Tai Chi tutor as unfortunately Michelle who had been with us for 19 years has moved onto another business venture.  We so appreciate everything you have done Michelle and look forward to learning more Tai Chi with our new tutor Bryant.

We finished off May with a Pizza lunch from Dominoes which was enjoyed by all.

In June we have sampled some of Anju’s Nepalese food and enjoyed learning about her culture.


We have continued with our usual entertainers at Happy Hour every Thursday and sometimes extra visits during the week.  We so appreciate our volunteers who come every week and over the last couple of months have learnt new crafts and started up 500 cards again.

As we move into July, we are going to recognise it as our Matariki month with visiting Kapa Haka groups, Waiata, poi, weaving and string games.  Finishing with a hangi.

We had our usual activities of games, quizzes, sit fit, bingo, baking, bean auction, music and ice cream rounds.

We would like to welcome our new residents and we would like to remember those that have passed.

Best wishes

Mandy and Anju
