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.

Richmond Library: Good Crafternoon! (Wednesday 31st October 2018-Wednesday 18th December 2019)

Join us at Richmond Library for an hour and a half of crafting. It’s a great opportunity to finish a project, or start a new one, and spend some enjoyable time with other crafters.

Bring along your craft project – knitting, hand sewing, mending, crochet, drawing, scrap-booking, or whatever half-finished, almost-started project you like – and work on it with other crafters at the library.

Free, but you need to bring all your own materials and craft supplies.

Every Wednesday afternoon.

Bring your lunch, or grab something from the Library Café.

All welcome. Bookings not required.

LiteClub Nelson & Tasman (Monday 3rd-Friday 14th December 2018)

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
First come, first served!

Summer Movies Al Fresco (Friday 14th December 2018-Sunday 27th January 2019)

You can see a musical, a drama, a dark comedy, a Shakespeare, a Christmas movie and, of course, a famous dog movie during this summer's programme of Miracle on 34th Street, Oliver, Dr Strangelove, The Dawn Patrol, The Taming of the Shrew and Courage of Lassie - at various parks around the region.

With the intention of making the Summer Movies more accessible to a wider audience, some screenings will be shown with English subtitles turned on. Please check the schedule.

All parks are flat, grassy surfaces and have accessible toilets, except Fairfield and the Salt Water Baths.

Gather a group, a picnic, contemplate a blow-up couch and join us from 7:30 pm to play giant board games, enjoy the park and watch the regions’ glorious summer sunsets.

Movies usually start just after 9 pm. Individual listings appear for each movie on this site.

Wrap up warm (you could even wear your pyjamas) and please pocket a torch to light your way home.

Movies will not screen if it is raining. If the weather is marginal on the night, please text 'Is it on?' to 021776623 after 7.30pm.

Antipodes (Thursday 20th December 2018)

Antipodes formed in Berlin in early 2013 as an outlet for the original music of Luke Sweeting (piano) and Jake Baxendale, joined by Aidan Lowe (drums). Since then Jake and Luke have toured Australia and New Zealand every year, joined by the guitaristic and compositional talents of Callum Allardice and a rotating cast of incredible trumpet players, drummers and double bassists, including Ken Allars, Simon Ferenci, James Heazlewood-Dale, Harry Day, Max Alduca, Tim Geldens, Tom Botting, Adam Tobeck and Nick Tipping.

The group focuses on an interactive approach to the music, the strong melodies tying together long, open improvisations. Described as “a northern European aesthetic with an authentic Australasian feel”, the sounds are drawn from a mixture of contemporary jazz, pop and folk, improvised music and their collective experiences of life as musicians on the far side of the globe.
