    Kia ora Eleanor,
    Sorry I won’t be l to attend your day of education and lecture.
    The distance to Snells beach is a great challenge for me both ways.

    I am very interested in supporting other events if held closer to home (rural Waikato). Anywhere in the “golden triangle “, south of Auckland would be ideal.

    Good luck for the day and enjoy the fellowship.
