🌞🌞You really get the feeling that summer is just waiting in the wings once daylight saving starts!! It snuck up on me this year - it's THIS WEEKEND!! 😲 So, don't forget to TURN YOUR CLOCKS FORWARD 1 HOUR at bedtime on SATURDAY, SEPT 23 (or 2am SUNDAY, SEPT 24) - or else you'll be an hour late for work on Monday - and that would be very uncool ;) #Wanganui #Whanganui #OurBeautifulPlace #DaylightSaving

Local photographer Ken Graham, President of Whanganui Camera Club, recently travelled to Japan and visited our Sister City, Nagaizumi-cho. With his camera Ken captured the amazing cultural diversity of Japan. His work will be on show upstairs at Element Cafe, 26 Victoria Avenue, over the weekends of 7/8 and 14/15 October - well worth a look!
