Sleep baby sleep

17th Aug 2017

Sleep - how's this looking in your whanau? Did the earthquake disrupt your sleep patterns?

We have an opportunity for families with 0-5 year olds to take part in a photography/storytelling event using photo's to share stories about sleep. You don't need any experience as a photographer or to own a fancy camera, just be willing to share your sleep story - how did the quake impact on your family's sleep habits?

Kim Boyce-Campbell will take you through four short workshops designed to help you take a photo that will capture what sleep looks like in your house.

First workshop will be on 29 August 10.30-11.30am at 14 Ludstone Rd. To register please contact Sarah on 0278072874 or

Our First Newsletter is published!

16th Jun 2017

After a heap of revisions and a lot of investigating 'what's on around our place?', we are very pleased to have published our first newsletter. 

This has been an exciting step for us - we are very keen for feedback from the community and want to have your ideas and events in our next newsletter. We aim to publish every 6 weeks so the next issue should be out and about at the end of July. Let us know what you want to see in it!

We did have a little trouble getting a photo we were all happy with - we think the 'selfie' was the most representative of us - friendly and happy!
