Road Trip!

Greetings to you all!

Neighbours Day Aotearoa is fast approaching and Sam and Cissy are gearing up to hit the road again!    

As many of you know, last year we travelled the length of the country, connecting with as many of you as possible.  And once again, in just over a month we will be coming to a town near you! Starting on October 29th on the north island’s west coast, we will be driving Aotearoa and stopping along the way to chat with locals about community, connection and neighbours.

Our interactive workshops  are a chance to develop and refresh some of the skills we all need when working in communities. We explore ways to reach out and include all the different people that make up our communities. These workshops are ideal for neighbours, community leaders, organisations, anyone that wants to build more connection. We will all learn from each other in a fun and supportive environment.
