Whānau Ora navigator

Kia ora whānau, one of my roles as our Whānau Ora navigator is to uplift the health and wellbeing of our whānau and hapū. One initiative I have started is taking some of our kaumātua to aqua aerobic classes at the Greymouth Aquatic Centre in Māwhera.

These are wonderful classes and I have had a lot of positive feedback from those attending and interest from others wanting to attend. It’s excellent gentle exercise and all are welcome to join us. I can provide transport up and back on a Friday. Class starts at 10am. Please contact me to register your interest. Phone: 021 721 917 or Email: [email protected]
