Craft & Coffee
Wednesday Afternoons 1.00-3.00 pm
Enjoying and learning embroidery, knitting, card making and jigsaws. Visitors and new members are warmly welcome to join us for fun and afternoon tea!
We work on our own crafts, but also often share larger projects. We have made and donated 688 blankets to the prem unit at the hospital since starting this in 2015!
Our koha is given away to various causes once a term. Last year we donated to Dementia NZ's Sensory Garden, and the Foodbank.

A regular time for a cooked breakfast (look out for Chris in the kitchen - he's awesome with a fry-up) and plenty of fishing lies.
One of the guys will share a short 'thought of the day', and there's always lots of laughter. Old or young, come along and get to know all the good blokes in the Arohanui family in a really relaxed atmosphere!
