The Nelson City Council’s Long Term Plan 2021-31 is now open for consultation. You have probably seen that The Elma Turner Library redevelopment project is part of a key issue identified as a priority in the consultation document and we’d really like to hear from community groups around the city on our proposal for a new library precinct, which includes building a new, larger, five star Green Star rated library on the corner of Halifax and Trafalgar Streets. I know that it is often those individuals who use the library services the most that can find it difficult to make a submission. As Volunteer Nelson members work closely with these individuals, we encourage you to make a submission as an individual or group. These submissions will help us get a better sense of what is important to you and so we can hear your ideas for the future of our library and our city. Please note, all feedback is considered public under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act, so it may be published and made available to elected members and the public. Public submissions must be received by 21 April 2021. For more information and to make a submission please visit shape.nelson.govt.nz.
Two fantastic opportunities for not-for-profit groups to benefit from the generosity of corporate volunteers…
Two fabulous opportunities to have some wonderful people volunteer with you!
Are you looking for Brains or Braun? We have both on offer from two corporates. One is a large technology consultancy based in Wellington and Auckland. The group is planning a conference over a weekend in March 2019 and are looking for an organisation in need of help over two days. The 100 strong team are happy to get their hands dirty and to help in whatever way is required, painting, planting; anything really! They will need to set their dates and get travel arrangements booked soon, so if you are interested, we ask you contact us as soon as possible.
The second group, is a locally owned and operated Home Builder in Nelson whose employees want to do a day of volunteering work in the community. They have a team of between 7 and 9? Does anyone need a smaller team to come and do some work for you? Let us know!
What was that about a gift horse? Thank you NZers and newcomers for all the volunteering hours you put in and also to all the non-profits (and corporate teams) making such a big difference in our communities!
If either of these opportunities interest you, contact us as soon as possible on [email protected]
