Connection Cafe Friday Sept 25

Spring into connection with LINK’s popular Connection Cafes, offering ideas for neighbourhood activities.  Our next session is FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 25, 1200-130pm at the Wanaka Community Hub.  Rescheduled from March, this session focuses on community-building activities like:
  • Community gardens– Ben Elms (aka Dr. Compost) explains this great opportunity to pool resources, bring neighbours together, learn about gardening, and share the harvest.
  • Hawea Sharing Shed– this informal hub of give and take is thriving – come hear how it started and how you could try one too.
  • Neighbourhood associations – Albert Town Community Association’s Nathan Weathington shares how they are connecting in new and different ways with a variety of ages
  • Lilliput Libraries– chances are you’ve seen pictures of one, how about starting this book swap in your own hood??  Local Lions will share about their recent success in this space.
  • Youth activities– would you like to engage your young people in safe, fun activities close by?  Sarah Millwater discuss the latest from Hawea.
  • Repair Café– imagine fix-it expertise available for free – get your bike, lawnmower, phone etc fixed by local volunteers! Wanaka Wastebusters is hosting their first on September 19 and will tell their story – would you like to get involved??
We’ll bring the local leaders with experience in these projects, and you bring the interest to make something positive happen in your space. A mix of information sharing and informal networking, LINK Connection Cafes are a chance to meet others, get inspired, and get advice on turning ideas into action. Lunch is provided and all are welcome to this free event, please email to register; required under Level 2 restrictions.
