The Stroke Foundation visit

You are warmly invited to join us for a presentation by our 2018/19 charity partner, the Stroke Foundation on Thursday 6 June. With high blood pressure being the number one risk factor in having a stroke, they have set up a mobile blood pressure clinic which will travel the length of New Zealand. This van will be available to visit following the presentation for a free blood pressure check.

Village news

Gentleman’s ride

Monocles, moustaches, and bikes descended on the village in late September as part of The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride.

The worldwide phenomenon was founded in 2012 and the charity event attracts over 110,000 participants on classic, custom-style and vintage bikes, in more than 600 cities.

The original idea was to change the perception of motorbike riders, while raising money and awareness for men’s mental health programmes, suicide prevention, and prostate cancer research.

After a hot cuppa and a chat with our residents, and raising money for their charities, the riders donned their helmets and waved goodbye to the residents as they headed off to their next stop.
