Live Stronger For Longer: Make the most of your retirement

Are you aged 65+ and are keen to get more active?

Come along to our weekly community strength and balance group! Starting on Tuesday 13 April at 10.30am, join us each week for an hour of directed exercises before winding down with a cuppa.

What does the class involve?

The class involves exercises that aim to improve strength and balance while reducing falls.  Don’t worry about keeping up – although these classes may make you breathe a little harder, they won’t involve any exercises that could do you harm.

Who is the class for?

All New Zealanders who are 65+ and at risk of falling, or have a history of falling, should give it a go. 

What is Live Stronger for Longer?

Live Stronger for Longer is a national movement full of practical information and advice on how to stay active, well and independent for over 65s and those caring for over 65s.

Remember those that have come before these School Holidays 🪖

These school holidays we have a range of ANZAC-themed activities to keep the kids entertained.

Each day we have a morning activity starting at 10.30am and an afternoon activity starting at 1.00pm, as well as week-long activities like colouring-in and a scavenger hunt.

In the run-up to ANZAC Day, a large knitted poppy and star are being flown around New Zealand by volunteer pilots supporting the RSA, The Starship Foundation, and NZ Warbirds.
Come into the Library on 8 April between 2.00–5.00pm and create poppies and stars to add to the artwork!
 
  • Material supplied
  • Bring your own crochet tools if you have them
  • Paper crafts for kids to create their own stars or poppies

What is The Poppy Flight?

The Poppy Flight is a major fundraiser bringing together remembrance and hope for the future. It will encourage our children to remember those who fought for our freedom, many of whom who paid the ultimate price, and encourage them to think about returned servicemen who need our help and support now.

The collective fundraising will help the RSA and the Starship Foundation continue to provide the care needed in many areas. The Poppy Flight will also help keep our aviation history alive through the NZ Warbirds Association, without whom the flight would not be possible.

Learn more about The Poppy Flight on their official website.
