Our Cup of Tea
To help mid-Cantabrian's get into the swing of Welcoming Communities, we are encouraging everyone to invite someone new to the district to have a cup of tea or coffee with them. It might be in your own home, if you are next door neighbours; in a café; or in a community setting such as a church, sports club, or school.
As Kiwis, most of us enjoy nothing better than catching up with friends, family, or co-workers over a cup of tea or coffee. It provides the perfect opportunity to connect, talk, listen, and relax. And every grandmother knows that there’s nothing a cuppa can’t fix.
Sharing a cup of tea or coffee is something that is familiar to most cultures. For example, many cultures have a deep connection with tea, which in some cases dates back thousands of years. Often it is ceremonial and the mark of being a welcoming host.
So put the kettle on and let’s make Ashburton more welcoming one cup at a time.
Why not share your cuppa with others by posting a picture with your new friend on our Facebook page; WelcomingCommunitiesAshburtonDistrict #ComeOverForACuppa
