Roy­als visit Ro­torua

Rotorua Weekender - - News - Shauni

Hi ev­ery­one. I hope you are all well and have had a fan­tas­tic week.

It was cer­tainly an ex­cit­ing one with the royal visit, wasn’t it?

So many peo­ple turned out to the Gov­ern­ment Gar­dens to see the royal cou­ple, Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sus­sex.

I hope they en­joyed their time here and had a great time check­ing out just a few of the things that make Ro­torua spe­cial.

Were you one of the many who lined the Gov­ern­ment Gar­dens to see them?

This week I also learned about the Brave Hearts ex­hi­bi­tion which will soon be in Ro­torua.

It is a great way to cel­e­brate pi­o­neer­ing Kiwi heart clin­i­cians and their brave pa­tients.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is an in­ter­ac­tive one, al­low­ing peo­ple to pump the heart and show­ing the blood cir­cu­lat­ing around the body.

As some­one who can­not stand blood and shud­dered just writ­ing out that sen­tence, it feels like it is not an ex­hi­bi­tion for the faint-hearted.

It has also been great find­ing out about some of the things avail­able to com­mem­o­rate and learn more about Armistice Day here in Ro­torua.

The Ro­torua Li­brary is such a valu­able source of lo­cal his­tory, so it is awe­some that staff from the li­brary will be hold­ing an Armistice Dayre­lated pre­sen­ta­tion.

There are plenty of things planned to help peo­ple com­mem­o­rate this im­por­tant part of our his­tory, so make sure you check out to­mor­row’s Ro­torua Daily Post pa­per or the web­site for more in­for­ma­tion on things which will be tak­ing place in the city.

Don’t for­get to keep those thumbs ups and downs and reader’s pho­tos rolling in so we can share what is hap­pen­ing in the com­mu­nity. Take care, un­til next time. P.S I have just re­alised, no pun in­tended with the faint­hearted com­ment . . . !
