Toastmasters is a worldwide programme where people - organised in Clubs - improve their leadership skills, communication skills and learn how to speak in public. All this in a safe, supportive environment.

Not watching TV, and getting out more at weekends.

This excercise thing.

I just seemed to be eating way more rubbish here. They don't tell you that on the travel brochures .

Also I don't watch broadcast TV any more.

We've got the, 'River City Rollers' here in Wanganui. Have you got a funky name for yourself as an individual when you participate in Roller Derby ?

Baking cakes/muffins. .....have perfected my chic-chip muffins for morning teas.

Making marmalade from some of the fruit in my garden and the garden of friends... very rewarding.

Distance walking.. ..done some fabulous walks and lots of half marathons (amazing considering I was a "proper couch potato")

Mosaic art... although not done it lately.

Kayaking....I could have done this in Scotland...and frozen to death.

Best way to see NZ and meet new people through a club.
