Hello everyone, 

SeniorNet Kapiti Honour the late Queen Elizabeth II

SeniorNet Kapiti Inc., among other charitable organisation’s, wish to honour the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

Queen Elizabeth II, had an extraordinary reign, which has seen her travel more widely than any other monarch, undertaking many historic overseas visits. Known for her sense of duty and her devotion to a life of service, she has been an important figurehead for the UK and the Commonwealth during times of enormous social change.

We welcome King Charles III, who immediately succeeded his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. Our condolences to the Royal family for their loss.

OE! Over the last month my grandchildren were in Turkey, Belgium and Paris. Which has given our grandchildren even more energy to travel further afield! Well, this time they are in Marseilles, what a trip they are having! We are still enjoying their summaries of the adventure they are on. Also the great photos they are sharing ‘online’, so no need to email them these days!
