The Ranfurly Manor owner, Tom Brankin, is developing a new facility which will offer a range of care provision within the one facility, something that has not previously been available in Feilding. Ranfurly Manor's new facility will provide all options of care: The external 'licence to occupy' • (LTO) two bedroom units One or two bedroom LTO • apartments within the main facility (level 2 care) Dementia (stage 3) level care • Continuing (hospital level) care • With 160 beds the new complex will be three times the size of the current Nelson St facility. This includes a 50% increase in the number of beds for residents requiring continuing care. The six independent units in Derby Street, will be separate from the main entrance in Monmouth Street and within walking distance to town. They will be an attractive option for people who want to make their decision to move long before they need permanent residential care.

Quit it: There is some extra incentive this new year to give up smoking -- the price is increasing from January 1. By LAURA WALTERS It s that time of year again. The time of year when everyone thinks up resolutions for the new year, with only the slightest intention of sticking to them. This year why not try something achievable? Set yourself a resolution that can be carried out locally, and maybe even something that could help someone else. Here are a few suggestion: Become a volunteer Manawatu, and the Rangitikei District, have a range of opportunity shops such as Manchester House, Salvation Army, and Red Cross, which are always looking for eager volunteers. And if you do not have time to volunteer, perhaps you could donate clothes, toys, or bric-a-brac to a local opshop. Quit smoking If you are a smoker, then give quitting a go. From January 1 cigarettes will go up in price by 10 per cent, so now is a great time to break the habit. MidCentral DHB health pro- motion adviser Julie Beckett said quitting was a double bonus . You get to save about $100 a week, and kick the habit. To help people quit, the DHB was offering free summer packs with nicotine replacement therapy. The packs are available from Tat- tons Unichem Pharmacy Feilding, along with other pharmacies in the district. Try a new recipe every week If you like to cook, but usually stick to the same old recipes take a leaf out of the book, and now suc- cessful movie, Julie and Julia and give some new recipes a go. Whether it s a new summer salad, some holiday baking, or an exotic dish from another country, try a new recipe every week. Join a sports club New Year s resolutions usually include losing weight. Rather than trying to diet with delicious holiday food taunting you, try upping your exercise load. The district is home to a number of sports clubs and grounds. Try your local golf club, squash club, aquatic centre, and tennis clubs offer grounds and camaraderie for those who want to get active in the new year. Adopt a pet While it is not something to be taken lightly, if you are in need of some company or your family is dying for a puppy, think about adopting a pet. The Feilding SPCA has cats and dogs for adoption, as does the Greyhound as Pets adoption organ- isation stationed on State Highway One between Sanson and Bulls. Adopting a pet is a big commit- ment, so you should always do your research, and make sure you have plenty of time to spend with the animal. But it is a fantastic way to give an animal a chance. Plant a tree With environmental problems facing us at every turn, help out in your own way by planting trees. Check with the council before you go digging and planting in the middle of the local sports field, but keep your eyes peeled for an area that needs some more greenery. Holding a group planting is a great way to make the manual labour of planting seedlings go faster, or join in with councils or community groups when they hold tree-planting days. For more information about planting in the area contact Horizons Regional Council or Green Corridors.
