The Women's Retreat - 25 to 27 February 2022

We held our Women’s Retreat Weekend at Vaughan Park Anglican Retreat and Conference Centre, Long Bay on 25 – 27 February.  It was a great success and was greatly enjoyed by all.

We just wanted to share some feedback from the mums.  

“Great to bond with other mums on the same journey”.

“Helped to gain a little time to myself and bond with others and be creative”.

“I enjoyed every single little bit of it, the activities, the interaction with wonderful and like-minded people”.

We have been asked to make it a regular event for mums, grandmothers or caregivers. We have already booked the same venue for next year - Friday 17 March to Sunday 19 March 2023.  If you are interested in attending, please contact Felicity on 09 485 3461 or email her at felicityh@wilsonhometrust.org.nz
