Wakefield Country Players Present 'Nell Gwynn' (Tuesday 2nd October-Saturday 1st December 2018)

The Olivier Award Winner for Best New Comedy, which took audiences by storm in its Shakespeare’s Globe London debut, has its Wakefield premiere in the Wakefield Village Hall in late November.
Be transported to the flamboyant world of seventeenth-century London, dripping with decadent excess and bawdy amusements. Her quick wit and exceptional beauty propel the winsome Nell Gwynn (Lydia Dunne) from selling oranges on the streets of London’s burgeoning theatre district to performing on its stages. Nell captures the hearts of her audiences—and England’s King Charles II (Scott Frater). Thrust into the royal spotlight, the king’s mistress is dealt a new role as the nation’s sweetheart in this joyous song- and dance-filled romantic comedy.
Wakefield Country Player’s show of Nell Gwynn is being directed by Nelson’s well known and respected thespian, Hugh Neill. He is directing a cast of 19, including local talent, Jen Amosa, Peter Verstappen (director of 2017’s Joyful and Triumphant) and Jo Robinson.
There are five shows scheduled;
The shows on 23rd, 24th, 30th November and 1st December are ‘Picnic shows’, where patrons bring their own food, drink, crockery and utensils, then banquet together prior to the show. Doors open at 6.30 pm and curtains raised at 7.30 pm
The show on the 28th November is a ‘show only’ performance complete with a warm beverage at half time. Curtain at 7.30 pm.

Motueka Library: 1000 Books Before School (Thursday 25th October 2018-Tuesday 31st December 2019)

Reading aloud and talking to your kids are two of the best things you can do.

1000 Books Before School encourages families to spend quality time together, promotes pre-literacy and learning by having listened to 1000 or more books before the child starts school. Any child aged from birth to starting school can participate in this self-paced programme.

1000 Books Before School is a programme designed to encourage and support families to read aloud to their children from birth with the knowledge that reading aloud to children is a vital ingredient in building a child's foundation for successful learning.

1000 Books Before School is a collaboration between Tasman District Libraries and the Motueka Family Service Centre and is supported by the Motueka community.

Litefoot is a charitable trust working between sport and the environment. Led by ten sports heroes, including Brendon McCullum, Conrad Smith, and Marina Erakovic, our ambition is to inspire New Zealanders to be environmental champions using the spirit of sport - teamwork and competitiveness - as the foundation for doing so.

Our lead initiative LiteClub is a programme designed to help community sports clubs reduce their environmental impact, freeing up money in the process. LiteClub's objective is to drive a transformation of New Zealand’s community sports infrastructure – and the culture to match – so that this collective group is electricity independent, water neutral and zero waste by 2025.

We will change inefficient light bulbs to energy saving LEDs, install water saving devices, wrap cylinders and lag pipes, and install a waste-minimisation programme. These changes will help the clubs reduce their overhead costs, as well as their environmental footprints. Our service and all products are entirely FREE for clubs.

For our December visit we still have 5 spots available. Be quick to register your sports club on http://liteclub.org/register-your-club

Awareness Intensive (Thursday 6th-Sunday 9th December 2018)

This is an opportunity to delve into the depths of your being using, Zen Riddles to cut through the mind. A Zen Style Meditation Retreat, using Koans as the tools to pierce through the veils of conditioned thinking into the pure light of being. The Koans, such as, 'Who am I', 'What is Freedom', are Zen riddles that cannot be answered by the mind but can be directly experienced.

Each and every being is constantly looking to be more of who they are, to be authentic, real, to live their pure potential. Yet to do so we have to turn our focus away from the outside world into the inner realms of being, to expose all the ways in which our thinking process prevents us from achieving that which we want most.
