What’s happening this week?

Latest news for 11 November onwards

It is CELEBRATION time! Not only are we open again after all the COVID 19 disruption but we are celebrating 30 years of being on the coast helping our community! 😛  😆 

The community house opened in May 1990 on the corner of Centreway Road. The year after that our childcare building was brought on site and in 1992 our community shop opened for the first time in a tiny space of the original house. How times have changed!

To celebrate the milestone our community shop will have specials all month and we will be out and about with our raffles and sausage sizzle. Our FOURTEEN lovely raffle prizes include two wonderful knitted display dolls and twelve gift and goodies hampers, one of which is gluten free. Tickets are $2.00 each or three tickets for $5.00. The raffle will be drawn on Monday, 16 November – in plenty of time for Christmas. You can buy tickets from our Community Shop or come and see us outside Silverdale Warehouse between 10.00 am and 2.00 p m  on Friday, 13 November. (Weather permitting.)

Our Foodbank, car seat rental  and jigsaw library are all available again.

You can make Foodbank donations at the office or shop and through our collection box in Orewa New World or Orewa Kiwibank in Hillary Square. Thank you.

You can also call or email us if you have a query or need assistance.

Most of our groups are returning now that level 1 is finally here. We are still encouraging people to sign in or scan the QR poster for contact tracing purposes.
