Hello neighbours, Cashmere News reminder
We hope that you're getting through after yesterday's local earthquake hazard reminder ok. As we build resilient preparedness into our "shakey isles" daily life, communities have improving response capacity - like online communication and networking e.g. Neighbourly.co.nz - and getting together often can be the best solution for accumulated stress, social isolation and risk.
* 16 February, Tuesday 7.30-9pm, Red Cross Recovery Matters workshop at Cashmere Presbyterian Centre hall, 2 Macmillan Ave - a trained psychosocial facilitator on impacts experienced by communities after disaster, the effects of long-term stress and then on the positive side some tools and strategies for support and well-being that we can all use to help ourselves, our family, friends, colleagues and communities - all welcome, hot drinks and snacks served, with Cashmere Residents' Emergency Support Team - flier:
Take care. We look forward to seeing you there.
