We’re a dedicated bunch of locals who meet monthly and do activities to build community, reduce waste and care for our natural environment.
Our vision is of a caring, connected, wastewise community.
A community newsletter is a great way to connect every household in Māngere Bridge, and to share what’s happening in our patch.
The above whakataukī or proverb, E koekoe te tūī, e ketekete te kākā, e kūkū te kererū, reminds us to value our diversity as a community.
“The tūī chatters, the parrot gabbles and the wood pigeon coos.” The many birds in the forest make up the bird song; we are all unique and contribute to the world around us.
We invite anyone who lives or works in Māngere Bridge to contribute to this community newsletter. Send us your news, stories, events, activities, actions and achievements.
If you run a local business, take the opportunity to buy some advertising space (on the back page).
And if you can help in other ways, let us know! Everyone’s contributions will help make the newsletter relevant, keep us informed about what’s happening locally, and reflect our rich diversity. Send us an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
A special thank you to Māngere Ōtāhuhu Local Board for helping to establish this newsletter. We’re also very grateful to FreshChoice for their ongoing sponsorship.
Ngā mihi koutou – greetings to all.
