Free community education event in Tauranga, Tuesday 15 Oct 2019, 2:30pm–4:00pm at the Tauranga RSA, 1237 Cameron Rd, Tauranga


Nb. The Commission is an autonomous Crown agency, offers objective, impartial information. This is not a marketing event.

The seminar discusses, in very frank and robust terms, the personal, legal and financial implications of retirement village living and what people need to consider before becoming a retirement village resident.

Registering to attend is free, and is important because seats in the room we have are strictly limited, and tend to fill fast once word gets around! We need to have an idea of numbers as we supply tea and materials to registered attendees!!

THE CAUSE OF OCEAN TIDES ON EARTH


The direct forces felt by Earth’s oceans due to the Moon’s gravitational field is extremely small, at about one nine millionth of the force they feel from Earth’s own gravitational field. Therefore our ocean tides are not caused by the simple lifting of the oceans due to the direct pull from the Moon.

Photography Group 1 wound up a successful year with a Christmas lunch at the Kaimai Café. The group has very enthusiastic members, who are keen to learn more about photography and the editing of their photos.

Writers' Inc was born out of Chris Parkes' Memoir Writing group from 2014. When Chris moved away from Tauranga some of us wanted to continue writing in a group and I took on the convenor's role. Since then one member has died and two others have left, having completed all they wanted to write.
