Ngā mihi mahana ki a koutou katoa / Warm greetings to you all,

Well whānau, in these uncertain times there are two certain things we can do – look after ourselves and look after our environment. 

Foster Care Awareness Week is a time to reflect on and celebrate the great contribution you have all made and continue to make. Through your care and commitment, you have and will continue to change lives for the better. Thank you – you are valued immensely.

We have a FAB event with GRG (Grandparents Raising Grandchildren) and Voyce Whakarongo Mai and AT (Auckland Transport) with a WHANAU FUN BIKE DAY at Henderson Park on SUNDAY 21st March – pamper yourself by coming and connecting with others ‘who get it’ – relax on your picnic mat or jump on a bike – goodie bags and spot prizes – see flyer attached. Please register ASAP.

Unfortunately, we have had to postpone the Indulge event on March 9 due to COVID-19. We are still really looking forward to having this event, so please keep an eye out in your emails or on our Facebook Group for the new dates when we can ensure the safety of all who attend.

Kumeu Show

I have VERY limited FREE tickets to the KUMEU SHOW! This year the dates are Saturday 13 March and Sunday 14 March, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm. Keep an eye out for the mailout offering these freebies again this year. Do keep in mind that some caregiver families miss out unnecessarily on events such as this with tickets being requested but then not used. Please be sure the dates in your family calendar are clear before you request them.
