News from the South Island

Welcome to September!

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’ve just realised that Xmas is just around the corner as I looked at setting Venus event dates for the rest of the year!
So, what do we want to do for our Canterbury Xmas get together this year? Last year it was drinks and nibbles at Chillingworth Rd Café. Very relaxed and casual.
Thoughts for this year? Chocolate Fish reward for all suggestions! Send me an email or text and I’ll then post them on Facebook for voting by Friday 8th September.

Facilitator Change Over

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our present facilitating teams for the fantastic job they’re doing, leading your Venus group over the last almost six months. I love the fact that four women all get a chance to step up, often out of their comfort zone, gain speaking confidence or just enjoy the leadership opportunity, each year.

Paula McFarlane – Papanui
Kimberley Rogers – Papanui
Rebecca Davison – Ferrymead
Gerry Pobjoy – Ferrymead
Trish Greenwood – Selwyn
Kerri Booth – Selwyn
