Event/workshop space Dargaville.

Have you got a small event or workshop in mind (around 30 people or less)? Come and use our space! We have a decent front lawn and indoor area with toilet and tea and coffee facilities.  Space is located at 15 Onslow Street Dargaville.  ***The time and event you have in mind will have to not clash with our classes or workday hours (mostly Mon-Fri, 9-5), as the space is normally an office for two employees. A board member or employee will have to be available and present, as our space has a lot of circus props in it.

Games day! Maunu

Keen to connect with others who enjoy playing card games and board games! We enjoy a range of games including: Yaniv, last card, shithead, scum (arseholes and presidents), risk, monopoly, euchre, cribbage, rummy (including a variation called "may I" a form of contract rummy), we also have other board games (backgammon, checkers, snakes and ladders, that's my fish).  We can host a small gathering in Maunu (we don't have many chairs and only a small table - unless the group is happy to sit on the floor on pillows!), or to meet out somewhere local if we can get a babysitter for our 6yo (we would still have our 1yo).

help with organizing trips, holidays etc.

Are you planning to go away for a few days on a trip, holiday or to visit relatives but are a bit overwhelmed as to how to get there, how to book it and how not to end up broke? I have successfully organized several trips through Europe for groups of up to 20 people and always enjoy getting the details of my own trips right, including the budget. I am familiar with a lot of online booking systems so we could get those tickets sorted for you straight away.

I am an amateur photographer and have produced images that have been displayed on websites and have exhibited at an open exhibition. Results have included wedding photos as well as those used for an exhibition on disabled people surfing. Close-up images of native orchids can be seen on the NZ Native Orchids website. Have, in the past, produced athletics action photos for a regional local paper. General photography would be on a candid as-it-happens basis. Thanks.

Amazing Facilities (off-season)

There is the potential for timebankers to use the Staveley facilities during off-season quiet times when the camp is not otherwise booked. Obviously this would be dependent on availability and some costs (such as power) may be incurred. Negotiation around dates, costs and time credits would happen on a case-by-case basis. Goes without saying (but we will!) that the camp needs to be left in same condition as you found it. The Staveley Camp is not available for parties. Alcohol/drugs not permitted, and sorry no dogs. Recently updated, the Staveley Camp offers full facilities and capacity to sleep 96. *8 cabins with bunks sleep up to 12 people per cabin (maximum capacity 96) *12 caravan power connections *well equipped large kitchen *clean bathroom amenities block with facilities for disabled *full laundry facilities *cafe nearby

Scrapbooking Your Precious Photos

If you took part in the recent photo gathering workshop, you might now be thinking what to do with all your photographs... I am happy to show you how to create beautiful pages to display and store your photographs safely and creatively. Scrapbooking is a way of collecting your photos in one place or creating ways to put them on display. You can be a simple or as elaborate as you want. It is all a matter of taste, but you will need to learn a few basic skills first. I can show you how to create a simple page to offering you advice and ideas for a larger project. I can provide materials for an additional fee and also signpost you to where to purchase inexpensive materials and tools. Workshops can be arranged at my home in Allenton or I can come to member's homes and work there. If a group of members are interested, we could form something called a 'crop' if people are committed to meeting on a regular basis.

Knitting - Gloves, socks and sweaters etc the choice is up to you

If you are looking to keep warm this winter, I am able to make a variety of gloves, hats, socks and sweaters .  If you provide the wool and the pattern it will of course just incur time bank hours. If you need me to purchase wool and patterns - I will give you a quote before you make the exchange. I particularly enjoy making fingerless gloves and gauntlets, over sized and regular scarves. Toe less socks are brilliant for wearing with jandels or for wearing at yoga or pilates to keep your feet warm.  I am also happy to give tuition if you fancy learning how to make your own knitted creations.

Personal Locator Beacon

Are you heading into the outdoors or somewhere with limited cellphone reception? PLB's are also a good backup for if your cellphone gets wet/lost/has no battery.  I personally keep mine in the glove box of the car when it's not out in a backpack with me, as often the NZ roads can have large areas with minimal or no reception. PLB's don't require cellphone reception, they transmit digital signals to satellites which then provide your location to rescue services and send help your way as soon as possible. If you'd like to use my beacon for your next adventure I just ask that you provide me with some info about your group and intentions so that in the unlikely event you do  activate the beacon that I can pass this on.
