Neighbourhood Events

Community Barbecues

Friendship, family, fun and food feature high on all our wish lists during Christmas and the New Year. Waimakariri District Council's Community Team are getting into the spirit of this special seaon by bringing together all of these things at a series of nine neighbourhood park barbecues.

The initiative is a way for residents and friends of the District to enjoy Mother Nature while grazing on a picnic, enjoying a BBQ sausage, and partaking in old-fashioned games and activities.

The neighbourhood barbecue events will all be held between 5pm - 7pm.
