Support for School Show

Published: 16-May-2019

The Woodend-Sefton Community Board met on Monday night and were delighted to approve a grant of $500 to the Woodend School toward the cost of lighting for its School Production in November this year in the Rangiora Town Hall.

Board Chairperson, Shona Powell says, “This is a huge undertaking for the school with all students involved working together and the Board are excited to be able to contribute to this community event. The professional lighting will bring a whole new dimension to their production and we wish the School and students success over their two-night run.”

The Board approved the concept plan for Hurunui Reserve in Pegasus go to public consultation to hear what nearby residents think. Although only a small neighbourhood reserve, bordered by Arahura Road, Aroha Street and Kawari Drive, the concept plan looks at enhancing the current use with an informal play area including trees and a picnic table.

The Board agreed with the recommendation from the Greenspace team to replant Griselinia on the Pegasus lakefront. These plants do extremely well in the Pegasus environment and they will be placed in a better position further back from the path.

The Board also discussed the Waimakariri Bus Service Review consultation from Environment Canterbury (ECan). The Board will hold a workshop later this week to develop their submission.

Shona Powell says, “The proposals in this review will have a significant impact on our area and we encourage residents to participate and let ECan know what they think.” This consultation closes on 26 May.

The Board will next meet on Monday 10 June at 7pm in the Pegasus Community Centre and the public are very welcome to attend.
