The Committee

CPCA has a strong executive committee for 2021. Members elected at the AGM held their first meeting on 12 April so let me introduce them. They are:

Alison Craig, Brian Vincent, Dayandra Hettige, John Holloway*, John Tiley, Priya Baskaran, Vijay Chandrashekar and Wade Martelletti*

* Co-opted at this meeting

Avinash Shrivastava is a committee member ex officio and Richard Whinam was elected as Hon Auditor

Some familiar names are missing, but they are not lost to CPCA as they have all offered their experience and skills as needed.

Planning the year ahead

We want people of Churton Park to be able to enjoy a range of community events and activities, regardless of who organises them. When our aims are the same, we can help each other to promote and deliver them. In that way, the whole community can benefit.

Halswater Drive kea crossing

CPCA and other community representatives have met with WCC to renew efforts to remove the uncertainty for pedestrians and motorists of the road rules that apply to this crossing point. WCC recognises the problem and hope to be able to offer a solution soon.


A question was raised at the AGM on GWRC’s progress in delivering a Real Time Information Board at the Churton Park village stop for buses to Wellington. We have now received advice that the work is programmed for installation this month.

Best wishes to you all

Brian Sheppard – CPCA President
