Acting with love
Margaret Eleanor Jefferies MNZM
27-12-1944 - 13-01-2020
Remembered with love by her many friends.
Respected and celebrated by many as a visionary for vibrant sustainable community and unlimited possibility.
Our inspirational and beloved Chair Margaret Jefferies left us on January 13, 2020 surrounded by her family and loved ones.
The community joined with Margaret's family in a beautiful celebration of her life held at St Saviour's at Holy Triity Lyttelton on Saturday January 18, followed by a gathering organised by the Lyttelton Time Bank.
Margaret's contribution to our communities is immeasurable and the ripples created through her curiosity, empathy, leadership, networking and genuine care for people will continue.
In honour of Margaret's memory we invite people to do a small act with great love for another person or the planet.
We will be honouring Margaret in our February newsletter.
The February Newletter will be published at the beginning of February

The beloved Lyttelton Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 10am til 1pm, with fresh produce, organics, meat, fish, eggs, honey, flowers, plants, preserves and baked goods. We also provide music and a community stall for groups who want to raise awareness or promote a charity.
Four days a week local people and visitors flock to The Garage Sale, our local op-shop, which both upholds the principle of re-using goods and provides clothing, books, kitchen goods and all manner of other things for great low prices.
The last Garage Sale for 2019 will be on December 21. The Garage Sale will reopen Wednesday January 22, 2020.
We are serious - and playful - about managing and minimising waste in Lyttelton Harbour. Our Waste Matters Project works primarily at the Lyttelton Farmers Market, with the goal of reducing waste to landfill through various initiatives.
Our commuinty is a community gathering place to share ideas, to help improve community well-being and a place of beauty. It offers the opportunity for people learn to grow food and minimise waste and a place to share in the bounty of the nutritious spray free food from the garden.
The LIFT library offers members over five hundred books on the transition movement, alternative currencies, sustainability and community development, economics, food, health, and relevant DVDs and magazines.

The Banks Peninsula Walking Festival offers guided walks all over the peninsula during the month of November. The guides, all volunteers, bring a huge wealth of knowledge and experience which makes each walk a valuable experience beyond access to tracks, reserves and private land.
Trade skills with other community members, get the weekly bulletin and get involved with other projects and events through the Lyttelton Harbour TimeBank.
The 21 Day Challenge: local heroes are taking on a challenge in the area of waste, environment, wellbeing and food (for example to minimise plastic use or eat only locally grown food).
Members borrow tools and things and pay an annual subscription, sharing and supporting the community, reducing waste and consumerism. Join here: LLoTTs
