Office News: 
Robyn and Wendy have recently been in Picton working on increasing advertisers for our members in our discount book.

On the 28th of July 2014, saw John Craighead (President), Graeme Faulkner (Office Manager) along with Robyn and Wendy our administrators down in Kaikoura in the hope of making more people aware of membership and advertising for our members down there. The weather was beautiful for our trip and thoroughly enjoyed our day out. Thank you to those that turned up in Kaikoura and for the businesses that we met in both places
