This week in the Tarrangower Times


Local Primary Schools Resilience Project

The Times was fascinated to watch Resilience Project Facilitator Martin Heppell hold a large group of primary school students in the palm of his hand as he explained in a most entertaining fashion, the three keys of Resilience: Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness. 

He explained that some of their perceived problems were really First World problems, a mere bagatelle compared with children in third world countries many of whom don’t have anywhere to sleep, and little, or nothing to eat...

Tarrangower Community Forum

Ageing is in. Whatever you call we oldies; Senior Citizens, Senior Seniors, or the Next Wave, we are everywhere around Maldon. And the Tarrangower Community Forum is intent on helping us survive into happier and more comfortable old age.

Are you ready for summer?

Maldon Hospital is pleased to present an information session that will prepare you for the approaching summer. 

The session will be held at Maldon Community Centre on Francis Street directly after the Maldon Community Lunch, at approximately 1pm on Wednesday 6 December.

An ‘Are you fire ready?’ will be presented by Maldon Fire Brigade. This will be followed by a short ‘Heat Health’ presentation by Maldon Hospital’s Liza Shaw, who will discuss the importance of keeping cool in the summer as well as some strategies for staying cool. Older people are particularly vulnerable during hot weather as ageing reduces the body’s ability to deal with heat. Older people may also have medical conditions that are exacerbated by heat, or may be taking medications that are less effective in the heat. 

There is no charge for the session and bookings are not required...
