Seed Sharing for Neighbours Day!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

Have you signed up for Neighbours Day 2021 yet? There's lots of ways you can join in...check out our website to register today:

Social dinner with BPW Franklin next week

Virginia from Pukekohe

BPW Franklin has the first meeting of the year, next week Wednesday 27th January at the Cossie Club, Nelson St Pukekohe 6.30 for 7pm. It is a social evening and a good time to make connections with other women, there will also be some planning for the year ahead so if you know some interesting speakers please bring their contact details.

We will be mentioning Red Bag Day also known as Equal Pay Day, which marks the period of extra days in the current year which women need to work to achieve the same wages as men earned during the previous financial year.

Equal Pay Day is recognised in many countries around the world, with the exact day varying depending on the gender pay gap in any particular country.

BPW Franklin is marking the day by filling red bags with toiletries and other essentials, for women who arrive at the refuges with nothing. If you would like to contribute to helping these women please bring along toiletry items. Shine has made the following suggestions:-

The basics: are toothpaste, toothbrush, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and deodorant.

Extras: wipes, face tissues, brush/comb, facecloth/sponge, lip balm, plasters, soap, hand gel, cotton bus, torch.

BPW will fill the Red bags and these will be presented to Carol Hubert from Shine, who is the February speaker. You are welcome to attend this too.

If you wish to attend and we hope you will join us, please prepay $30 text Marilyn 027 4799121 for payment details before 8pm on Sunday 24th and let her know if you have any special dietary requirements.

We look forward to meeting you next week.
