Meet the Candidates:  Sunday 15th September 2019 at 7.00pm at the Village Bryndwr – an invitation has been extended to the 13 candidates who are standing for election in the Fendalton / Waimairi and Harewood wards as City Councillor or Community Board member, to come and speak to the people of our community.  They have been invited to give a five-minute address on “What I have to offer as a City Councillor/Board member” and to outline the values which have motivated them to stand for elected office.  There will be a time for questions from the floor.  David Coster will be moderating the meeting, and there will be supper afterwards.

And for those in the Papanui Ward:  The Redwood Business and Residents Group are hosting a ‘Meet the Candidates’ event on Tuesday 17 September at 7pm – Christchurch Function Centre, Redwood Hotel, 340 Main North Road.

Save the date: The Village AGM date has been set for after the 10am morning service, October 13.
