Facebook us on Greenpark hall opened after long battle After a long battle with the district council, the new Greenpark Community Hall officially opened at the weekend. The original Greenpark hall was badly damaged following the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes, and had to be demolished as a result. Greenpark also lost their primary school not long after the hall was demolished as part of the seven schools the Ministry of Education closed in 2013. After losing the school the community fought to convince the district council to rebuild the hall. Greenpark Memorial Community Committee chairman Terry Lassen said the district council at the time thought the Lincoln Event Centre would be close enough to serve the community needs. “It was a fight to get it back. . . we had to stick to our guns. It is important to have that especially with more people coming in[to the area],” he said. The new facilities were built on Greenpark Pavilion, across NEW: The Greenpark Community Hall has been rebuilt, on the Greenpark Domain. Photo: Geoff Sloan the road from the original site. The total cost of the build was $849,085. The fit out of the building was funded through grants and donations. The facility includes a large meeting room, floor space, storage rooms and lockers and a kitchen. The original stone foundations were transported from the old site across the road to the new site while accompanied by bagpipes before it was laid at the new hall. Selwyn MP Amy Adams cut the ribbon to officially open the new building. Greenpark RSA president Ivan Norton helped unveil and read out the war memorial plaque before the public were invited to look at the new facilities. Fire ban lifted but caution warned The prohibited fire season ban has been lifted but authorities are still warning people to be cautious. An open fire ban was put in place two weeks ago due to low rainfall. The ban meant no outdoor fires could be lit in the district and burning crop stubble was also not allowed. Although the ban has been lifted principal rural fire officer Douglas Marshall warns people to still use caution when lighting fires. “While rain over the past few days has reduced the fire risk, we request that people continue to exercise extreme caution if lighting a fire in the open and follow all safety precautions,” he said. This prohibited fire ban lift does not apply to Department of Conservation land and there is still a year-round restricted fire season in place in the hill and high country of Selwyn district. “It will be common over the next few weeks for property owners to undertake vegetation fires in rural areas in Selwyn. To avoid unnecessary call outs of volunteer fire forces people are asked to check whether fires are being supervised before dialling 111,” Mr Marshall said. District council guidelines say fires should only be lit in daylight hours and should not be lit when strong winds are blowing or forecast. The fires must also be lit in an area that is surrounded by firebreaks and are clear of any standing vegetation. People should also make sure there is a water supply available near the fire. Lincoln Event Centre Saturday 30 July 2016 We are thrilled to announce two new sponsors of the 2016 Sensational Selwyn Awards IPORT as the sponsor of the Arts & Culture Awards The $500 million South Island Industrial Port or IPORT is located on 122 hectares of prime industrialzoned land in Rolleston. Developed by the Carter Group, Stage 1 kicked off with the sale of 27 hectares to Lyttelton Port of Christchurch (LPC) who are developing an inland port, MidlandPort. I PORT will provide organisations access to the efficiencies and convenience of being located next to an inland port. Most of the large sites that share the common boundary with LPC are for lease, with a small number for sale. Challenge as the sponsor of the Community Services Award Where we have come from: Challenge was formed in 1998 in an initiative by Fletchers, who saw an opportunity in the New Zealand fuel supply industry to create an independent retailer network. The goal was to create a network that could compete with the big four corporate fuel entities. The reason we do what we do: We’re the little dog with the big bite. Challenge is a brand that cherishes its Kiwi independence, value for money, down-to-earth service and being genuine with our customers. We remain different simply by staying true to our identity. The majority of Challenge sites are independently operated by people who aim to provide the warm, personal and friendly service our customers deserve.
