Time to meet your street in Sel­wyn

Selwyn and Ashburton Outlook - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - ERIN TASKER

Sel­wyn’s third an­nual Meet Your Street pro­gramme is set to kick off in time for sum­mer.

Sel­wyn Dis­trict Coun­cil’s mo­bile bar­be­cue will be vis­it­ing 18 dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions around Sel­wyn pro­vid­ing free street gath­er­ings to en­cour­age neigh­bours to get to know each other. Along with the free bar­be­cue, the events in­clude mu­sic and games for kids.

Con­nect­ing Com­mu­ni­ties co­or­di­na­tor Tyla Har­ri­son-Hunt said it’s a chance for neigh­bour­hoods to get to­gether to catch up and make new friends.

The events are on Tues­days be­tween 5.30–7pm. In­vi­ta­tions will be dropped into mail­boxes the week be­fore. The first is on Novem­ber 7 at Markham Way Re­serve, Rolle­ston.

Coun­cil has funds avail­able for those keen to or­gan­ise and host their own street gath­er­ing, with a sub­sidy of up to $75 avail­able.

Any­one who lives in a neigh­bour­hood in Sel­wyn can ap­ply for the sub­sidy, which has in­creased from the $50 of­fered last sum­mer.

See the coun­cil’s web­site for more in­for­ma­tion and de­tails of a com­pe­ti­tion to win a bonus Meet Your Street event for up to 50 peo­ple.
