Community Groups Make Waimakariri a Community

I often think that what makes the sense of community so strong in rural and small-town New Zealand is the huge number of community groups that are found everywhere.

The extent and depth of these groups within the community mean that locals make contacts and friendships that bind out communities together and contribute to a feeling of belonging and a regard for our neighbours that isn’t always found in our cities.

A listing of many of our Waimakariri groups can be found at http://www.waimakariri.govt.nz/community/directory_files/Community_groups.pdf .
