Does anyone have old/obsolete reading glasses or sunglasses they don’t want any more?

I'm putting a bag together to send up to Ferrymead Lions Club, who gather them for redistribution to worthy causes. Feel free to drop them off at Mrs Woolly’s General Store.

Thank you!

To all horse riders in Glenorchy:

Regulations and safety requirements in NZ are changing on riding helmets.

A locally known, Dunedin based rider Desiree Bond, who has done a lot of research with riding helmets in the NZ market, would like to come up to Glenorchy around Queens Birthday weekend with a supply of helmets and offer fittings and choices to the Glenorchy riding community. 

She would just charge 10.00 to do a professional fitting (to help cover travel costs from Dunedin).

As there are quite a few children riding in the district and also adults, this could be a great opportunity to upgrade. 

“You can mend broken bones but you can’t unscramble brains!” 

Nothing is set in concrete as we need to see if there was enough support for Desiree to come.

Please let us know if you would be interested on or
