Members of the Care and Craft group make macrame lampshades at the Awapuni Community Centre. Hazel Cooksley founded the group in the 1970s, and based it on the format developed by Elsie (surname unknown) and run at the Rangiora Community Centre. The group provided social interaction and activities including; crafts; card games; sing-alongs and celebrations. The group was very popular, with van loads of residents from rest homes joining the sessions.
