Re­search shows that dur­ing the cold and gloom of win­ter, we ben­e­fit from get­ting out more.

While it’s tempt­ing, and more or less tra­di­tional to stay hun­kered down com­fort­able and cosy, it is bet­ter for us men­tally, phys­i­cally and so­cially to make the ef­fort to be out and ac­tive.

Palmer­ston North is blessed with plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to walk or ride; ac­ces­si­ble play­grounds and ac­tiv­i­ties, parks and sports­grounds, courts, and sta­di­ums; a plen­ti­tude of movies, plays, con­certs and per­for­mances; on­go­ing dis­plays, ex­hi­bi­tions and events; cafes, restau­rants and places to hang.

It’s why the or­gan­is­ers of the week­end’s rock show and the midwinter con­cert in The Square de­serve con­grat­u­la­tions for widen­ing our hori­zons, while pro­vid­ing us with ad­di­tional midwinter rea­sons to so­journ in our own city.
