Tai Tapu Sculpture Garden Visit



On Thursday the 3rd of November 2016 at 1pm there is a trip to the Tai Tapu Sculpture. This is a one hectare evolving sculpture garden and native regeneration project. The owner of the property will be giving us a talk about this undertaking. We will then enjoy a ramble in the garden before having our afternoon tea. On the way back we will visit the Heathcote Valley Gallery. There we will see some amazing wood carvings as well as some stone carvings and other arts and crafts. 

There will be no Stone Carving group on that Thursday. 

There will be an entrance fee charge of $5. We are departing 1pm and will be back by 4.30pm.  See Karen for more details.

Keep up the good work, consumer driven organisations are always empowering to clients.

I believe if people start attending from hospital, they are more likely to engage once living in the community. Keep keeping on!

Over the time as I see consumers grow and become more confident, I am amazed. The groups, activities and support given is well received by consumers, and family/whanau. You hold a valuable service, keep challenging.

Step Ahead has been very useful for our family member. It has given her strength and confidence to attempt things she would never have done in the past. She is meeting a lot of people with similar problems to her, and they can face new challenges together and help one another by talking about it.

Your service is excellent, keep up the good work. Being able to engage people into Step Ahead prior to discharge is very useful from our perspective, for the person, and focusses them on the community, not extending the inpatient stay.
