Smiles were all around at the Are Pa Metua headquarters yesterday as members met for the first time this year.


President Nga Teao-Papatua said the mamas and papas were excited to attend the centre again after the long festive break.

“We are all happy to be here, back to our usual routine of 3 days a week,” Teao-Papatua said.

The Are Pa Metua Trust provides a respite care programme for the elderly from the hours of 8am to 2pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Transport is provided and the elderly participate in social and community activities and share a light meal.
