Ten Tips for Waitangi long-Weekend



Here are a few tips to help you have a safe and enjoyable long-weekend

  1. When hitting the road, remember to adjust your speed to the flow of traffic, belt up and if possible avoid overtaking unless necessary.
  2. It’s summer time so keep your liquids up with lots of H2O – remember to keep tabs on your little ones and also your pets.
  3. If heading to the water, always keep vigilant! Make sure you have the right equipment and skill level for any water activities you undertake.
  4. Food can turn quickly in the warmer months, avoid that nasty tummy bug by covering your kai, keeping it cool and storing it correctly. If in doubt – throw it out.
  5. There are lots of outdoor events during the Waitangi weekend, remember to slip, slop, slap and wrap lest you turn into Rudy the red lobster.
  6. A Stress-Less Weekend is always a good mantra! Take time to just chillax, keep it simple and don’t be afraid to treat yourself.
  7. Get upright and active! Sometimes it’s good to balance your relaxation time by getting active – go for a walk with the kids, dog or just yourself.
  8. Spend quality time with family and friends.
  9. Don’t let the weather sneak up on you to put a damper on your plans, check the weather before heading out – metservice.co.nz
  10. Get a good night’s rest before heading back to work/school, that way Tuesday won’t feel like an Olympic marathon.

Finally, from all of us here at the Raukawa Charitable Trust, have a safe and happy Waitangi weekend.
