The huge amount of community work provided by individuals and organisations in the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton area has been applauded by City Council Community Development Advisor Marie Byrne.

Marie says she has done some number crunching in the past week. "I worked out that in 2018 the Community Board supported 59 community organisations to provide over 130 programmes to their local communities. These programmes comprised more than 200,000 volunteer hours contributed by over 4,500 volunteers and benefitting 135,000 participants.
