Do you live in the Churton Park / Glenside area? Then read on!

By Urs Cunningham | Posted: Sunday July 24, 2016

A series of three public Emergency Preparedness meetings will be held in the coming weeks. The meetings will be facilitated by theWellington Regional Emergency Management Office, to form a community-led response plan for our area.

In the event of an emergency, residents and businesses in Churton Park and Glenside will be faced with a range of different opportunities and challenges, so we hope to see a cross section of residents across both suburbs who can work together to formulate a comprehensive plan.

The Churton Park Community Association and the Glenside Progressive Association are working together to create a sense of ‘village support’ across our neighbourhoods. Some areas of our communities are already well connected. Extending these networks is important in case of a significant emergency.

Venue: Churton Park School hall: 90 Churton Drive

Meeting 1: Thursday 11 August, 7pm - Why and how to respond as a community in an emergency.

Meeting 2:  Thurs 25 August  - Practical solutions to critical needs in an emergency.

Meeting 3: Thurs 8 September - Identifying and planning for future projects to fill gaps in our community preparedness. 

We hope to see you all there. Spread the word!
