In Feb 2017, Halswell Community Project with CDN Trust and Kiwi Church, put a proposal to the Community Board and Council for the Old Library Building at 381 Halswell Road that we believed would be beneficial to both the community and the Council.
The end result is that we took over the lease on the building in June this year.
We plan to establish a collaborative community approach to the use of the old library building and car park providing local groups with much needed office space, space to hold activities and store the materials needed for them as well as opening up opportunities for other creative uses such as community art spaces, drop in centres and more.
So far we have set up office space, a large usable community space, an interview room and an information hub where people can drop in and find details of local clubs, organisations and businesses, a coffee morning and a Youth Hangout.
We are keen to hear from people and groups in the community who might be interested in holding meetings, classes, activities or groups on the site.
We are really excited at the opportunities having a Community Hub offers and look forward to working with many people to make it happen.
The Hub is open most days so drop in and chat with the team or find out about whats going on.
Office Hours are Monday - Thursday 9am - 12noon
We’re excited to build a bigger and better community… with YOU! With your help, in our new location we will engage and inspire more people to make Halswell a vibrant, connected community! More space to do more cool stuff!
