Communities Award, the Rangiora-Ashley Community Board is extremely proud of
the hard work and dedication shown from the students of Rangiora New Life

The award category ‘Enhancing
Communities’ was chosen as the development of the reserve is an outstanding
example of successfully engaging with young people in our community, and
incorporating their views into the development of the reserve. It is also
intended that the natural reserve will restore ecosystems characteristic of the
original environment, as well as provide recreational elements for the
community. The reserve is an asset that is sure to be highly valued by the
community as it continues to mature.
