Volunteering is at the very core of being a human. 

No one has made it through life without someone else's help'

Do you know someone who would enjoy visiting an older person on a weekly basis? 

We are looking for Volunteer Visitors in Kaiapoi, Rangiora and Eastern Christchurch.

If you are available Mon-Fri during working hours

 and would like to make a new friend the Visiting Service could be for you!

Please spread the word!

Lower Cashmere Residents

We hold several community events: park/reserve plantings and community picnics.

We do a regular clean-up of the Ashgrove Reserve, the last clean-up including a sausage sizzle. 

We have an annual neighbourhood picnic, which this year was very well attended

over 100 including the Silverbacks Ukulele Orchestra.

Welcome from Mary McLean Place

Mary McLean has an Oak

Beneath which may gather some folk

To pass time of day

In a neighbourly way

To share the latest news or a joke.

Hello to the Heathcote Neighbourhood

People are finding Heathcote Neighbourhood to be a very friendly and helpful group of people. 

Something is always happening 'in the valley'. 

The veggie stall between the Tavern and Art 

Craft Shop is marvellous as people put their surplus veggies and fruit there

for anyone to collect instead of throwing away.

Also I find the April Freecycle Day a good way to get rid of unwanted items
