Winter warmth at Sturges West

Media release

Winter warmth at Sturges West

There were warm smiles despite the early morning chill when the first sod of earth was turned at the Sturges West Community House.

“This is great –so many have worked to make sure it happened,” said a jubilant Christine Shepherd Chairperson of the Waitakere Community Board.

Waitakere’s Mayor Bob Harvey said it was heartening to see so many turn out for the blessing of the house. “The community house that will be built on this site is the result of a very successful partnership between the community and Council over the past four years,” he said

The idea of a community house next door to Summerland Primary School grew into a model partnership between the community, council and the Ministry of Education.
