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 (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.firstname.lastname@example.org or

Driving in the rain and
on wet slippery roads.
So often after a spell of fine weather, we get periods of heavy rain, much of
which does not drain away quickly because the ground is still very hard.
Drains at the side of the road also often get blocked by leaves and debris
and this can cause temporary flooding.
It is very important in wet weather to keep your speed down, and keep extra
watch for pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. Always indicate and use
your lights on the dip setting. Park lights only minimally improve visibility
in wet weather and should not be used unless your vehicle is parked.
Stopping distances nearly double on wet roads. When you're driving you
slow down and keep a generous following distance between you and the
car in front
be extra careful and take corners slower than usual
pay attention to road signs warning of flooding and remember that you
will need more time to stop and avoid all hazards in wet conditions.
The two-second following distance rule should become the four-second
rule in wet conditions.
