From September last year, you might have noticed a weekly recipe in The Informer, created by Stacey Conning and published by Whitianga Social Services as part of their “Healthy Eating, Healthy You” programme. The recipes have been consistently yummy, easy to prepare and focused on achieving a healthy diet on a budget, which is a useful goal for all us.

It’s a well-known fact that after retirement, many men yearn for and miss the company of other blokes. There is a desire and need to get out of the house occasionally and rub shoulders with fellow retirees who talk a similar language and who are on a similar wavelength to themselves.  

For the month of January, while a helicopter operated by the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust is based at Crosby Field in Whitianga, we report in every issue of The Informer on the missions flown during the previous week by the Whitianga-based helicopter.
