last day in Blenheim

A month in Blenheim has gone quickly..we are now noting things to do Next Time.....
The friends we have been staying with have been away for a week, so we have had more chances to get to know local people better (and vice versa).
We found a local community enterprise cafe called Joocy Loocy NZ, sited in an old furniture shop just off the centre of town (John Street). The coffee , food, and welcome are good! There is one large section with trestle tables for artists/students/school students to work or do homework. Small businesses can rent desk,computer and printer space by the hour or week...good for small start-ups.
Artworks are around the place for sale and herb plants too.
Every community needs a place like this.

I can remember being fascinated by New Zealand post boxes, there is an inkling of an idea similar to the community enterprise surfacing here. Art based, fingers crossed it will develop past the discussion stage, it is rather reliant on a suitable venue. Not many permanent options in a village.

What a great neighbourhood resource.
