Chambers’ Golf Day to Support Wellington Cancer Society

The 22nd Wellington Region Chambers of Commerce Golf Day will be held in support of the Cancer Society of Wellington, with a portion of the registration fees going towards the charity.

Wellington Chamber Chief Executive John Milford said the Golf Day is an opportunity for the business community to support a local charity.

"Wellington Cancer Society is an extremely worthwhile cause, and we are hoping that businesses will join us to support them.

"These golf days are the ideal occasion to network, get active and make the most of the New Zealand summer.

"It’s a team event, with our members, our sponsors and the local business community coming together for a great day with loads of fun to be had and prizes to be won."

The Chambers’ principle sponsor for the event, for the second year, is First New Zealand Capital. FNZC Director Phillip Hunter said that FNZC is delighted to put its name behind the event.

"As a member of the Chamber, FNZC wishes to support events that bring local business people together to network and have a fun day out."

This year’s event will be at the Shandon Golf Club on 22 February. Businesses from throughout the region are invited to enter a team for the Ambrose format.

Lunch, an on-course drinks service, snacks, and prizes are included in the entry fee.

However, perhaps that is not at all as bad as it sounds, and we are just finally waking up to the reality that it never really existed in the first place... More>>

 
 

Environment: Government To End Tenure Review

“Tenure review has resulted in parcels of land being added to the conservation estate, but it has also resulted in more intensive farming and subdivision on the 353,000 ha of land which has been freeholded.
