The Great Quilting Bee for Lottie and Ray’s quilt is taking place on 16 July in the Bryndwr Common.   We are making a simple pattern with strips of the fabric that was donated earlier in the year.  Anyone who would like to be involved (sewing, ironing, making tea, offering moral support) please come along. Sewers, please bring your sewing machines, extension cords, pins etc. We aim to start at 0930 and finish around 3pm. If possible, please bring a small plate of finger food for a shared lunch. Morning tea provided. RSVP helpful but not essential to Catherine McK.

Burnside Primary grocery update: Thanks so much to everyone who has been contributing groceries. At the moment we need: Rice, pasta sauce, spreads (i.e., peanut butter, jam, marmite, honey) and soup. Also, tissues, jif, all-purpose cleaner, toilet cleanser, dishwash liquid, dish scrubbers, small hand sanitiser, and toothbrushes. Stocks are currently good for everything else. Grocery vouchers are always welcome!

School Holiday reminder: the holiday time of 11th to 22nd July means many of our regular groups take a two-week break.

Papanui office closed the 2nd week of the holidays, 18th to 22nd July, re-opening Monday 25th.

Help required: The Parish Council has been tasked with selling the former Redwood manse. The process for putting the property on the market is underway. It is most likely that we will need to get the house and grounds ready for the sale in the coming weeks so help will be needed with lawn cutting, general garden tidying, window cleaning etc;. If you are able to assist, please leave a message with either office. Thank you.
