Mayor in the Chair in Sandringham

Sandringham is the location for Len Brown’s next Mayor in the Chair session, on Friday 17 May.

The Mayor will be at the Sandringham Community Centre, between 12 noon and 1pm, to chat to locals from Sandringham and nearby areas about their aspirations and concerns for their community and wider Auckland.

These lunchtime events are an opportunity for people to have a brief one-to-one chat with their Mayor. They are complemented by larger-scale informal evening meetings held each month.

“It’s important for me to hear directly from Aucklanders about their hopes and aspirations about their local communities, and any concerns they might have.

“Auckland is an incredibly diverse place – we have a great diversity of backgrounds, interests and opinions, and these sessions are a great way for me to connect with a wide range of people. I’m really looking forward to being in the vibrant and dynamic Sandringham community.”

The Mayor will be at the Sandringham Community Centre, 18 – 20 Kitchener St, from 12 noon to 1pm.

Ends
