What’s new?

New mum, Heather is back and working hard but not full time at this point. Drop in and catch up.

 A new roof at last! We are very excited about the Centre’s new roof and looking forward to our first dry winter in years!  A Huge THANK YOU to all the people and organisations who helped pay for the desperately needed roof.

Tuesday Art: Drop in Art sessions are still on Tuesdays from 10am-2pm but are not run by King Street. The art classes are open to all ages and abilities, gold coin donation. This term’s theme is trees! The latest project is a 4 week series on sponge painting. All materials supplied.

 What’s happening on Thursday’s this Month?

Did You Know… Te Hauora Runanga O Wairarapa have brought Keiko in to run a second Tai Chi Class, Thursday mornings from 11.30-12.30 during the School term. Gold coin donation per session

Understanding Epilepsy : The Epilepsy Association of New Zealand invites you to attend a free seminar on Thursday, May 10 2012 from 12:30. The seminar will cover: what is epilepsy, causes, recognition of seizure types & triggers, first aid for seizures, recording seizures, principles of anti-epileptic medication, lifestyle issues and more. Tea & Coffee provided. To RSVP ring 0800 20 21 22.

Feldenkrais : Rupert Watson’s highly-regarded movement classes have started up again for the year. Thursday at 6.30pm and Saturday at 9.30am sees the Community Centre become a human movement laboratory. Easier than yoga and more fun than Pilates, Rupert’s classes produce nicely postured, refreshed, lengthened, highly functioning people by the score. Come along to see what you are missing. First class free. Down the track he’ll be running some short (2 hour) workshops to give people a taste, with themes of “a healthy back” and “the breath of life” to kick off with. To get on the workshop info list email Rupert on:
