Titirangi Community House manager, Debbie Winter, says she's "a bit of a mother hen" so it's no surprise that she sometimes bakes her holiday programme charges a cake or a batch of scones. It might even be a tasty little savoury as a treat. Debbie and the community house's holiday programme supervisor, Nanette Kestle, have now put the finishing touches to January's holiday programme for 5 - 12 year olds. There's a range of events lined up over the three-week

period from January 12 including crafts, board games, physical games like tug-of-war, quizzes and the big draw cards for popularity, bus trips perhaps to the beach for a swim and a picnic or to the movies. In Titirangi they can take up to 40 children a day and parents can book their children into everything, or only into days with special appeal or as the family budget permits.

The Glen Eden Community House programme starts on January 19 for two weeks for children

from 5 - 13 years and, like its Titirangi counterpart, offers fun games, arts and crafts, trips to picnic or walk on beaches and there's even something called a Messy Obstacle Course which involves "goo, flour and water bombs" and requires a change of clothes. "Many of the children who come along know each other from school," says Titirangi’s Debbie

Winter. "But if they don't, it's a great way to make new friends. We're not a babysitting service. We keep the kids going all day and it's a lot of fun. Many regulars come back year after year." Check out your local community houses to discuss their range of fees, booking requirements,

special events and any WINZ subsidies that may be available. Safety is paramount at all of the programmes and the children are supervised closely.
