Things Tuesday 4th Sep 2018

Hello There

I have some newsy bits to share with you today, so pull up your coffee and lets get started.

Saturday Mornings at Cornwall Park

If you haven’t been to Cornwall Park in the past few weeks, I urge you to hurry up and get there. Cornwall Park is at it’s best at this time of year. Aside from the frolicking lambs and frisky calves, there are daffodils and magnolias and tulips and unadulterated prettiness wherever you look. Oh, and our lot are there on Saturdays at 7.30 am, by the flag pole and Wednesday’s at 5.30 pm at the Rugby Club rooms.

 

 

Saturday Morning Change of Venue

On Saturday 15th Sep 18 the OWR folks will be going on a road trip to Shakespear Regional Park for their morning trot. Well meet at the carpark in Shakespear Bay with a view to heading off at 8.30am. Do bring a change of clothes to combat the unsettled weather, and do bring a picnic. BBQs and thermo thingys for heating water would be most welcome.

I recommend you use Google Maps and head to Okoromai Bay. As you get to the water, turn left.

We’ll be returning to Cornwall Park the following Saturday.

Farewell Dinner

On the one hand, we have to offer big congratulations on a new job well earned. On the other hand, boo hoo, one of our lot is leaving us for colder climes. Christchurch has called the Midwife, and Lisa has answered that call. While we are thrilled for her, she is going to have one heck of a commute on Saturday mornings.

It has been decided, over coffee, that we will revisit the Alexandra Eatery on

Saturday 29th Sep

so that we can give Lisa an appropriate send off. Give me a shout if you can make it, and I’ll make the bookings on the Wednesday before.

Sticks and Stones break our bones

On returning from our run/walk last week, we found a couple of ladies sitting in the sun; Lay and Carole. Our Carole has had a tumble and broken her ankle. Ouch! Eight weeks in plaster! Thank goodness they have loaned her a “motorbike”.

Take care Carole. We look forward to seeing you in the Park soon, even if it is on crutches.

    Gosh just about wants me to take up running again! Best wishes Lisa, so jealous. Christchurch is so beautiful. They reckon it only takes one winter to acclimatise to the cold. Speedy healing to Carol
