Are you involved in the

financial assistance to
make your project work?
The closing date for Creative NZ -- Creative
Communities Scheme funding applications is
Friday 31 May. $4,500 is available this funding
round. For more information about criteria,
contact the scheme administrator,
at the Selwyn District Council,
ph: 03 347 2708.
Looking for funding for
yourself or your group?
Selwyn District Council provides funding at a
Ward level to support groups and individuals
whose work helps improve community
wellbeing in Selwyn. Supporting people
to reach their goals such as representing
the district (e.g. at regional, national or
international competitions), or carrying out
volunteer work, can benefit Selwyn district
in a variety of ways, for example through
having access to sports coaching, mentoring
or through volunteer service to the district.
These funds are dispersed by the Malvern
Community Board (for Malvern ward), the
Selwyn Central Community Board (for Selwyn
Central) and Springs/Ellesmere councillors
(for the Springs and Ellesmere wards), with
research and advice on each application
provided by Council staff.
We are now inviting applications for funding.
If you know anyone who may benefit from
this funding please visit www.selwyn.govt.
nz/council-info/community/funding to find
out more. If you wish to discuss this please
contact Marilyn.email@example.com or
phone (03) 347 2710.
Sport New Zealand
Rural Travel Fund
Sport New Zealand funds are available for
Selwyn sports teams who need to travel
to local competitions and have members
aged 5 -- 19 years. School competitions in
school time are not eligible.
For information and application forms,
contact Stuart Westoby at 347 2708, stuart.
firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications for
this funding round for winter sports teams
close on Friday, 31 May.
As daylight savings has finished, the Council
needs to think about the health and safety of
everyone using our cemeteries during the
darker winter hours.
We would like to make the latest time to book
a burial (excluding ashes) at 3.30pm. Normal
hours will resume when daylight savings begin
the end of September.
Darfield Medical Centre
The medical centre is now in the final
stages of construction.
There have been some delays and it is
now anticipated that the building will be
complete by mid-June, including sealing
of the car park areas. This date is still,
however, dependant on the weather in
relation to the exterior work.
It is anticipated that the new Medical
Centre will be in a position to open at
the end of June, once a Building Code
Compliance Certificate has been issued.
The Council is carrying out its
annual residents survey from 25
May. The survey asks residents
what they think of Council services
like the water supply and roads
and about the Council's future
plans for the district.
To help our future planning we are also asking for
residents' views on topical issues. For example,
in this year's survey, we are asking people to
comment on how the Council can help meet the
needs of new residents.
We will be contacting 1,000 residents and asking
them to take part in the survey.
