Kaiapoi Signs Up To Tell Local Stories

Published: 21-Dec-2018

The Kaiapoi-Tuahiwi Community Board were excited to see progress from the Kaiapoi Signage Working group earlier this week.  The group was established to oversee the design and installation of new interpretation and information signage throughout Kaiapoi.

The Board signed off on the Terms of Reference for the group and are looking forward to seeing the development of signage that shares local environmental, cultural, historical and social stories with members of the community and visitors to the town.

Community Board Chair, Jackie Watson, says “Kaiapoi has such a rich culture and heritage and we want to be able to share these stories so that everyone can benefit from the town’s unique history.”

Board Members Roger Blair, Chris Greengrass and Jackie Watson have been appointed to the working group, as well as representatives from the Kaiapoi Museum and Council’s Greenspace Team.

The Board then considered and approved a grant of $500 to You Me We Us to help advertise the upcoming Waitangi Day community event. The event is to be held on 6 February 2019 and celebrates cultural history through speeches, Kapa Haka and Maori crafts. Trousselot Park will once again be the setting for this popular event.
