Head­ing into sum­mer

Rotorua Weekender - - News - Shauni James Shauni

Hi ev­ery­one, I hope you are all do­ing well and have had a great week.

Wasn’t Labour Week­end a beau­ti­ful one?

It truly felt like sum­mer was on its way with all that sun­shine and nice warm weather.

It was also great to see Ro­torua so busy — peo­ple and cars ev­ery­where, es­pe­cially cars with bikes and boats in tow.

It was beau­ti­ful out at Lake Tarawera on Sun­day af­ter­noon when I went out to the Lake Tarawera Spring Fair. We cer­tainly have some nat­u­ral gems in this city, don’t we?

It has also been great to see and hear about all the Bike Fes­ti­val events which have been on this week.

There are still a num­ber of events you can catch this week­end, so head along to ro­toru­abike­fes­ti­val.com to check out what is on.

Have you been putting on your hel­met for any of the Ro­torua Bike Fes­ti­val events?

This week I found out more about what the Gey­ser­land Guild of Wood­work­ers does.

It is such a cool club and they are now in need of a new build­ing, so if you or any­one you know of can help the guild out with this make sure you get in touch.

There is also a cool East­side Trol­ley Derby event com­ing up which sounds fun.

It al­ways thrilling to go fly­ing down­hill and see how fast you can go.

Those look­ing for a bit of an adrenalin rush should def­i­nitely get in­volved and reg­is­ter.

While on the topic of der­bies, Sul­phur City Steam Rollers has its fi­nal home game of the 2018 sea­son be­ing held at the South­ern Trust Sports-drome on Sat­ur­day. It will be a game for a great cause, and they are plan­ning to raise enough funds to cover the costs of seven rep­re­sen­ta­tives from roller derby leagues around the coun­try to at­tend the new St John Men­tal Health First Aid Course.

I think this is such a great idea as deal­ing with men­tal ill­ness is a com­mon strug­gle in so­ci­ety.

For more in­for­ma­tion on this event check out the story on page 5.

There are many more cool things go­ing on in the com­mu­nity, so I’ll let you get read­ing.

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.
