After 27 years serving on the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board, this term will be Mike Mora’s last. He said this stint was about “handing over the torch” and continuing to serve the community.

The 2019 "Our Riccarton, Our Community, Let's Have Fun" day was a great celebration by and for the community. Beautiful weather, an amazing turn-out, a wide representation of cultures, and free food and entertainment made it a special day for all.

See below for a range of photographs taken during the day. (Click on an image to see a larger version.) And many thanks to Newell Grenfell, Hon PSNZ, for the photographs.

Congratulations to successful election candidates

Successful candidates

Congratulations to Catherine Chu, Helen Broughton and Gamal Fouda for their successes in this month’s local body elections.

Catherine is Riccarton’s City Council representative and also topped the poll for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board, while Helen has retained her seat on the Community Board.

Because Catherine has secured a seat on the City Council, she does not take a ward seat on the Community Board, and the second spot there has been gained by Gamal, who was was third in the voting.
