Applications to the Council's new Events Fund are now open.
The Fund was recently established by the Council and is available to support events that are held
in Selwyn which are open to the public and meet these criteria:
the event attracts local, regional and international visitors
it contributes to key benefits identified in our events policy
it helps to increase the range and diversity of events in Selwyn
it promotes our district
Events should preferably be run by a not for profit organisation with charitable status, although
applications from community organisations and individuals may be accepted.
The Council's Community Services Manager Lesley Symington says that the events fund was
established because hosting events in Selwyn has many benefits for our community. "Events can
bring significant income into our district, they can bring our community together in a celebration,
and help make Selwyn as a great place to visit and live."
Applications for funding must be received by September 27. If you are thinking about hosting
an event in the next year and would like the Council to consider supporting this you will need to
send your application in by the closing date.
Application forms are available at www.selwyn.govt.nz/eventsfund.
Darfield Medical Centre
Darfield Medical Centre is now almost complete and it is expected
that Code Compliance Certificate should be issued within the next
few weeks, however discussions are currently underway between
Council, its contractors and tenants regarding some remedial and
possible additional works at the premises. As soon as these works
are agreed and completed then the medical centre practice will
relocate to the new premises and begin operating.
Information on a opening date will be publicly notified once this is
Enviro Ellesmere meeting...

What do you think?
We have had some great ideas so far.
Come for a drink and a chat about how

Come along to a workshop on Wednesday 11 September
at the Lincoln Event Centre from 7.30 -- 9.30pm to find out
more about the benefits of using cloth nappies from the
'Nappy Lady' Kate Meads.
Kate encourages parents to use cloth nappies and estimates
that if all Kiwi parents committed to just one cloth nappy
change per day, we could prevent over 1 million disposable
nappies from ending up in our landfills every week.
At the workshop you will learn:
the costs of disposable versus cloth
the environmental impact of both options
some of the modern nappy options
all about the different styles of nappies
about washing and caring for your nappies
Attendance at the workshop costs $25 for one adult or $30 for a
couple and includes a free trial cloth nappy pack valued at $100.
Booking is essential and can be done online at Selwyn.govt.nz.
Aquafitness classes are now offered at the centre. They are a great way to
stay fit, while keeping cool and having fun.
We have two classes. Aquafit for life provides a low impact workout which
is particularly suited to the over 50s, people recovering from an injury or
people looking to ease back into exercise. This class increases general
mobility and flexibility as well as cardiovascular fitness.
Our high energy water workout class is for people wanting a high cardio
intensity workout with exercises to sculpt and tone muscles.
Our aquafitness timetable with prices is below. Pool members receive $2
off per class. Concession cards are available for 10 classes for $54 for
Aquafit for Life and $81 for High Energy Water workout.
The best time to swim
We are often asked what the best time to swim is by people who want to visit
the Aquatic Centre when it's quiet. Now swim school lessons are operating
between 3.30 -- 6.30pm, this time can be particularly busy at the centre
with young swimmers using the learn-to-swim pool, and some of our main
pool, and the toddler and leisure pool being used by children after school.
During the daytime from 6am -- 3.30pm and in the evenings from 6.30pm
-- 9pm are generally great times to come and visit the centre if you're
looking to do some quiet laps in the main pool, or a relaxing therapeutic
swim in the Hydrotherapy Pool.
