Report on AGM

posted 23 Apr 2017, 21:47 by CPCA Secretary   [ updated 23 Apr 2017, 21:56 ]

The AGM of the Churton Park Community Association, on 15 March was attended by 56 people. Our keynote speaker this year was Wellington Mayor Justin Lester, who described some key opportunities and challenges that influences the Council’s work programmes.

The Committee

A key function of the AGM is for residents who are financial members of the CPCA to elect our Committee for the year ahead. The elections resulted in a larger committee that offers both growth and continuity in our work. The existing President and members were re-elected and joined by three new members, who offer valuable skills and energy:

Channa Ranasinghe, who played a key role in engaging the participation of the Sri Lankan community in our recent Neighbours Day Multicultural Fair.

Ivan Burton and Joanne Gresham, who both have young families and so bolster those perspectives in the Committee’s work.

Richard Whinam CA, was re-elected as the Association’s Auditor for 2017.



The Committee’s first meeting, on 5 April elected the following officers:

Vice President John Morrison

Honorary Secretary Avinash Shrivastava

Honorary Treasurer Elaine Scoble.

Emergency Hub Update Meeting

posted 4 Apr 2017, 01:19 by CPCA Secretary

Following the series of public meetings before Christmas, in which Kerry McSaveney guided us through the WREMO approach to emergency response planning, the WREMO office prepared a draft Community Emergency Hub Guide for Churton Park and Glenside, which included the draft lists of resources, risks and special places that we had identified.

The hub guide and covering notes are available on the Churton Park Community Association’s website, at http://www.churtonpark.org.nz/community-emergency-hub


It would be helpful if we could get together again to review the guide and discuss the next steps. Please feel free to bring along others who may be interested. I’ll bring some printed copies that Kerry has provided.


Date: Monday 10 April.  Time: 7:00 p.m.
Place: Large meeting room, Churton Park Community Centre
