We were delighted with the large turnout for our four Neighbours Day events at the end of March.
Our past “Have a Cuppa” teabag pack distribution encouraged connection at that most local level. This year, bringing people together to learn more about other methods like Lilliput Libraries and communal gardening obviously struck a chord with many. Our morning tea at the Wānaka Community Hub saw preschoolers, retirees, and many in between coming to learn more about the social services and facilities available in the building that is LINK’s home. The free movie night was also popular and we are considering continuing these to encourage connection among families, friends, and strangers who may become friends.
Personal connection is where community building starts, and LINK is always looking for new ways to encourage this! See below for photos.
