20 WEDNESDAY JUNE 6 2018 Latest Christchurch news at SELWYN TIMES Have fun with KidsFest these school holidays Saturday 9 – Saturday 23 July 2016 KidsFest is returning to Selwyn for the July school holidays, with bookings now open. Around 70 events will be held in Selwyn as part of KidsFest between 7 and 21 July. “KidsFest has a wide variety of exciting events and activities for kids to do in the upcoming winter school holidays,” says Selwyn District Council’s Senior Events and Recreation Advisor Dave Tippett. “Our events usually book out pretty early so we advise parents to book early to ensure families can go to their preferred events. “This year we’ve got some new events such as Explore Parkour, and Sport Suzie’s Super Silly Circus Show, but we’ve also got some favourites from last year such as High Ropes Challenge, Selwyn Kids’ Market, and fun water activities at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre with aqua volleyball and handball, inflatables and paddleboats. The Selwyn Libraries are also hosting a range of activities including Map It, Kahuna Kidsongs and Game On,” he says. Some KidsFest events are free, while others are available at low cost. Booking is required for some events. KidsFest has been running for over 25 years. Selwyn families can also attend events in Christchurch and Waimakariri. For information on KidsFest events and bookings visit, or pick up a KidsFest booklet from a Selwyn District Library, the Lincoln Event Centre, Rolleston Community Centre or Selwyn Aquatic Centre.

Everything Selwyn website launched A group of community agencies in Selwyn, supported by the Council, have launched a one-stop shop with information on everything residents and newcomers need to know about the district. The Everything Selwyn website will become a comprehensive online directory of services in the Selwyn district, offering information about everything from local schools and sports teams to special interest groups and events. It also provides practical information for those new to Selwyn and New Zealand, including information about banking, the IRD and health care. Jason Flewellen, Selwyn District Council’s Community Development Advisor says Everything Selwyn is an easily accessible community database for anything of interest to Selwyn residents, those who have been here a while, as well as those brand new to the area. “The website is a go-to for the community to find out the latest, and also let others know about their own events and services. Adding a listing is super easy and free,” he says. The concept for the website was developed out of the research findings from the Selwyn District Council’s Migrants and Newcomers Strategy. The website has been developed by Council in conjunction with Selwyn’s four community care groups. Beverley Elder of the Malvern Community Care Group says Everything Selwyn will enable all newcomers to Selwyn to learn about the area. “The more people use the website, the more useful it will be as a constant flow of information to help people find what they are looking for,” Mrs Elder says. Members of the Selwyn community are encouraged to upload their own events and services, to populate the website. The Everything Selwyn website can be accessed at www. to view and add listings.
