Kia ora koutou, Greetings all

Sorry we have been off the air over the last few weeks. Life has been as complicated for the Collective members as for everyone else.

Moving into Alert Level 3 will not be much different in terms of LILAC's physical operation. We are still closed.

But we have some ideas for events where members can join us online.

At 7.30pm on Tuesday 5 May, Jan Rivers will hold a session on Mindfulness. This will be an opportunity to learn (more) about mindfulness, how it can improve our everyday lives, and enable us to be more positive as we sort our way through all the stuff life throws at us. Goodness knows we can use some of that!
We'll give you the Zoom details to join the session in the next few days.

At the end of May we’ll have a quiz show in which you can all join - by yourself or within your bubble.
We’ll be in Level 3 by then,
 or even perhaps Level 2, so we are permitted to join our bubble with another bubble, or maybe we can gather in small groups to have "real" teams .

Watch the LILAC events page for details.

Other Collective members are working an online games event.

Probably in June there might be some material about tattoos. This will be a "paper" exercise which should lead to some "in person" activities as time goes by.

We would be delighted to hear any ideas members have that we could make available to other members on line. Send your ideas to

In the meantime stay home (except for your daily walk!), help keep us all safe.

Carole A Hicks for the Collective.
