COVID-19 Info Hub
We want to do everything we can to encourage people to stay active, wherever possible, which we think is now more important than ever. We have produced a helpful one-pager which sets out some great ideas for being active at home or close to home and we also encourage you to check out the fabulous outdoor spaces we have within our wider Wellington region (but please stay 2m away from other people).
Below you'll find updates, business continuity information, exercises that you can do at home, nutrition advice (including recipes), postponements and cancellations, and other useful links.
