It’s great to see SeniorNet Kapiti up and running (OK, sprinting!) in Term 4. Many of our classes and workshops are full or near full which is exceptionally pleasing for the Tutors and Committee after the significant activity slowdown of COVID-19. With everyone so busy, it’s a opportune time for me to remind our members that everyone involved in the running of SeniorNet gives their time for free.

We’ve noticed that a number of our members are using two wheels to come to Matai Rd and with summer just around the corner, we’re pleased to offer somewhere you can securely leave your transport while you’re attending meetings, courses and workshops. Everything has been ordered and I would expect the racks to be available within a fortnight. Continue reading
