The Neighbourhood parties have been a tremendous initiative. The drive and enthusiasm from council staff, Amanda Hema and her team and Richard Gaby and Heather Gaby (of Sport Waikato) has ensured the parties are a success.
The aim of the initiative is to get neighbours to know one another in a fun social setting; encourage feedback from the community about what they want; make our community safer by fostering good neighbourly relations; profile the council and the services we offer; discover people’s strengths; and encourage links within our communities. All of the parties have meant that anywhere from 50 to 100 families have engaged with each other and the council.
PARTY TIME: The Neighbourhood parties have been a staple in bringing the community together.
FUN TIMES: Councillor Herman Van Rooijen enjoyed the festivities at Glenkill Park last week.
