Kaikoura Star - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Laugh­ter, mu­sic and shared food. How good was the week­end just past? I loved ev­ery mo­ment. Mu­sic knows no bound­aries and young and old took ad­van­tage of what mu­sic was on tap.

On Satur­day I gig­gled and laughed my way through a laugh yoga ses­sion with 25 other women. Just how heal­ing is it to have a deep full-on belly laugh?

On Satur­day Tina McVeigh, one of New Zealand’s top bridge teach­ers from The House of Cards in Christchurch will do an in­tro­duc­tory les­son at the Bowl­ing Club with drinks and nib­bles af­ter. On the same day there is the Com­mu­nity Re­cov­ery Expo where you can find out all that is go­ing on in the re­cov­ery ef­fort. Ac­tiv­ity and sport is an­other way of ward­ing off the win­ter blues. Com­ing up is a sports expo where ev­ery­thing sporty and well­ness ori­en­tated will be show­cased.

On an­other note it’s sad to hear the Hut­ton’s shear­wa­ter pop­u­la­tion has been hit badly by the quake with their breed­ing ground now a tar­get of wild pigs. Let’s hope the call for help is heard New Zealand-wide.
