Halswell Community Website

A 'one stop shop" for anything that you might want to know or find out about Halswell in Southwest Christchurch

This website is maintained by the Halswell Community Project, a group that envision Halswell as a thriving community where people know each other, have fun together, can learn together, and look after each other.  It is a well connected community that cares.

This website is aimed at building connections between community members.  

The Project team also put out a monthly Halswell newsletter  and run a number of initiatives aimed at connecting Halswell people with each other.

We are keen to assist people interested in putting their community ideas into action.  Look for us at a Halswell Community Market Day or see our Halswell Community Projects page.
