A word from the webmaster Posted Mon 20 Sept 2021

Thank you for visiting the site of the Churton Park Community Association.

The site has just been transitioned to New Google sites, so things will look a bit different. There are also still a few gremlins which I need to chase down, and some of the information needs to be updated and expanded.

To navigate to the pages on a small screen, use the "hamburger" icon in the top left corner (three stacked parallel lines) which will expand the page directory.

Check out some of the new material, including the section on walking tracks in Churton Park and the photo gallery.

Also note that this is a "secure" site (see padlock symbol in browser bar).

Come back again to see how it looks.

John Morrison Webmaster Churton Park Community Assn.


Have you had your Covid-19 vaccinations yet? posted 26 Sept 2021

Churton Park has escaped the worst of the problems so far but that is little consolation to those who have lost family members and friends, or whose health and livelihood have been compromised. We can neither afford to be complacent nor to be misled by the mischievous messages that circulate on social media.

New Zealanders are fortunate to have a single source of verified information, in many languages, through the Government’s ‘Unite against COVID-19’ website https://covid19.govt.nz.

If English is not your first language, please check the button at the top of the COVID19 website to access to the information in another language.

Please take time to check it out regularly for the latest information and follow its advice on what to do to stay safe. This includes:

Getting your free vaccination,
when to wear a face mask,
locations of interest,
alert boundary maps, and
work and business safety.

Let’s all do our bit and keep each other safe

News from the new committee

posted 16 Apr 2021, 11:14

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.

Buses

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
