Droplet-spread diseases can be spread by coughing and sneezing, close personal contact and contact with an object or surface with viral particles on it and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes. #COVID19

Offering a peek behind the curtain, Ryman have released behind the scenes footage from their recent film. Showcasing their passion for life, Ryman residents from New Zealand and Australia feature in the film. Let’s meet the stars.

“If I hear music, I just want to dance – body seems to just move!” says dancer Audrey, 84. Poet Brian, 86, says “Poetry helps me to question and understand the meaning of life”, followed by a witty “– haven’t worked out what it means yet”.

As their residents blaze their own trails, Ryman matches that pioneering spirit. “Ryman villages offer living choices to suit everyone so that you can live the way you want.

Gone are the days of getting one qualification out of school to see you through your working life. Now, upskilling, online courses and on-the-job training are all part of making your way up the career ladder. 

We want to talk to people who have completed micro-credentials, bitesize qualifications for specific skills. 

Perhaps you've pieced together a full qualification by doing online courses, or maybe you've taken a workshop rather than investing in a six-month course. We'd love to hear from you - email josephine.franks@stuff.co.nz

Stephanie Gray from Nelson Marlborough Health

Whenever someone is diagnosed with COVID-19, teams immediately start work to identify who they might have come into close contact with. If you haven’t heard from a contact tracing team, your chances of catching COVID-19 are very low. #COVID19

The Blenheim House & Garden Tours are on this Friday and Saturday. We are still desperately in need of more wonderful volunteers to help out, in support of Breast Cancer Foundation NZ! The tours take place on Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th of March.

To say thank you (heaps) for volunteering for the day, you can check out the amazing houses with a free ticket to the other tour day. So, it’s a fantastic opportunity to check out eight beautiful homes around Blenheim.

Volunteers help out with the following at a designated tour house:
• Assisting with registration in the morning
• Putting up signage
• Being stationed around the house to help move people along to avoid congestion
• Ongoing monitoring of wristbands.
• Ensuring people use their shoe bags and don’t leave shoes at the door

We would really appreciate it if could help us by sharing this volunteering opportunity with family and friends! Alternatively if you know of any groups you think may be interested – let me know and I will get in touch with them 😊

If you're interested or want to find out more details please email us on volunteer@bcf.org.nz or phone us on 0508 105 105.
