“Happy Paraskevidekatriaphobia?”

Many people suffer from this phobia – the fear of Friday the 13th. This particular belief has no scientific reason behind it

and neither any logical nor illogical base behind this fear. Another scientific name of this fear is ‘tridecaphobia’.

Dear Members

We trust you have all had a break and found some peaceful moments in, around or out of town and have walked into the

new year feeling refreshed and ready for a much improved 12 months.

CanCERN is presently trying to get itself into a new office as Brian’s dining table, although convenient, would like to see

some meals back on it as opposed to computers and copious quantities of paper. We will bring you up to date on this in

next week’s newsletter.

The first CanCERN meeting is not until the 24th of Jan – more about this next week. We are however wanting to put

together a Media Think Tank and are looking for a small group of people to help, prepare and flesh out our media

approach. If you are interested in this, knowing our key focus will be on leadership and processes (CCC, CERA, EQC/

Fletchers, Insurance) then please email leanne@cancern.org.nz. Please note this will be preparation in order to

produce a commentary of how the decision making process impacts on residents.

– email leanne@cancern.org.nz before Wednesday 18 Jan.

warm regards

Leanne and Brian
