Since retiring from her teaching career Veronica has remained an active performer. Her birthday recital will include works by Brahms, Chopin, Schubert and others.

The Selwyn District Council’s Project Steering Committee and Council have been continuing to develop plans for the new West Melton Community and Recreation Centre. Resource Consent has been granted for the project and a fundraising drive will be launched in September to gain support for the project from the local community and corporate sponsors. Plans for the Community and Recreation Centre include a main stadium with a full-sized basketball court, meeting rooms, catering kitchen, playcentre and Plunket facilities, Scout hall and youth area, toilets and change facilities, associated landscaping and plenty of car parking. The existing community hall will remain available for use until the new facility is open, and it is planned to remove the old building once the new facility opens. The project is now working towards completing detailed drawings so the project can be tendered next year. The expected date for completion and opening of the facility is 2018.
