March Update

The year is rushing past like the March Hare! Perhaps it is because we are so busy? The second of Saelyn Guyton’s “Sing With Confidence” workshop series will be filling the Centre with happy voices tonight – if you’ve missed this or any of our other workshops, rest assured that Lauren is putting together a programme for the next few months, so we will have some exciting new opportunities to announce soon.  As always, please feel free to drop in for the Spade to Spoon Community lunch of Friday’s (food served at 12.30pm) – it’s a friendly space and we love to share the food with new people. Figjam are here for the next few weeks running their ever-popular “Creative Empowerment” course, and we are collaborating with Whitianga and Whangamata Community Services Trusts to provide a relationships programme for women called “Walking on Eggshells”. And, of course, we are still open for all our regular services Monday through Thursday.

Spade to Spoon volunteer opportunities

I can confirm that the post-Christmas lull is over: not a drop of luscious laksa was left in the pot at last Friday’s community lunch!

Spade to Spoon is all about making connections – between people over an open table meal – and between what we eat and where that food comes from. There are lots of ways you can be involved:
