Funding to grow
Selwyn businesses are being invited to apply for
assistance from a subsidised business support
programme which can provide funding for advice,
training and mentoring. It is designed to help
businesses wanting to expand, develop new products,
target new markets, improve their customer service or
"Selwyn is a fast growing district and we have a number
of new businesses which want to expand but need
some advice and assistance to be able to do so" says
Anne Hindson, Selwyn Business Training Advisor.
The programme is available to local GST registered
businesses with up to 50 staff, and is directed at
owners, managers and senior staff. It is funded by New
Zealand Trade and Enterprise.
In the past, workshops have been held at Selwyn District
Council offices, but this year these workshops will be
replaced by courses run by independent providers.
Business owners can select from a range of courses
on offer at venues throughout the Canterbury region.
Courses cover topics such as strategic planning,
finance, marketing, governance and health and safety.
Programme funding can be used to contribute towards
up to 50% of the cost of training, consultants' fees,
mentoring and a broad range of workshops for eligible

Neighbours Day Aotearoa
Neighbours Day Aotearoa is being held on 23 and 24 March 2013.
The weekend is focused on communities getting to know each other.
Getting to know your neighbours is a great idea. They can help you
if there is an emergency -- they can also check on the safety of your
family, pets and property if you are away. By getting to know your
neighbours, you might also make some great friends!
During Neighbours Day weekend, people are encouraged to take some
time to get to know their neighbours. You could do this simply by
visiting your neighbour, or taking them over some baking or produce
from your garden. You could organise a local event or activity like a
barbeque, a street clean-up day, a games day, a family day or even an
Easter-egg hunt for local children.
Creating a neighbourhood support group is a good way to get to know
your neighbours and create a safer local community. Neighbourhood
support groups play an important role in keeping people safe and
supported in an emergency. If you are interested in joining a group or
finding out more about Neighbours Day Aotearoa, contact Sue Jenkins
on 347 2800 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
