Papanui Community Fun Day

There’s nothing better than a Community that is truly united, one which looks out for its own and seeks to see each other thrive.

On Sunday, February 11th, Papanui Youth Development Trust (PYDT) along with many other incredible local community groups are hosting Whakaoho, a fun, family-focused event.

Come down for the afternoon to grab lunch at some fantastic food stalls, be entertained with Live Music & Dance performed by people from our community, have a go at Stone Carving, getting a Spray Tattoo and have a great time playing on the free Bouncy Castle, Horizontal Bungee, Sumo Suits while getting some great shots in the free Photo Booth.

This is truly an event not to be missed! Bring the family and support some great local community groups.

Free Sausages for the kids!

This should be good news for people turning right out of Fraser Street

This should be good news for people turning right out of Fraser Street onto Cranford Street…

Here are some improvements coming up next week to the Cranford St – Fraser St intersection.

I’ve heard a number of locals who turn right out of Fraser St onto Cranford St have been concerned about their safety when making this turn, so this will make it much safer. Being the main access point now to Papanui Primary School, the traffic flow onto Fraser St has increased since work began on the new motorway, so I’m glad these concerns have been addressed by the team at CNC Alliance.

The work will be done at night so there will be minimal disruption to those travelling through the area next week.
