Encouraging efforts to support upright citizens appreciated

Her aim is to assist participants to do simple exercises, seated in a chair, standing and walking, which provides them with improved balance, spatial awareness, flexibility and leg strength.

This year’s programme has come to an end, which was marked with a festive lunch at the Alexandra District Club yesterday. It will return in February 2020.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
