Keeping in touch

Keeping in touch with people and activities in the community is vital to a connected and thriving community. In Halswell there are many ways of keeping in touch and keeping up to date with the latest happenings.

Most community groups and organisations have a Facebook page or website outlining their activities and information. There are also notice boards in the library at Te Hāpua and outside the Halswell Hub. Staff at Te Hāpua and the Community Hub are always more than happy to help people access information.

The Halswell Community Website aims to list as much information about activities, events and organisations as possible. If you are looking for something to do or get involved in, this is your first stop

The Halswell Community Newsletter comes out each month and is compiled by the Halswell Community Project with information about what is going on in and around Halswell.  Paper copies are available at the Halswell Community Hub, Te Hāpua: Halswell Centre and various businesses around the community. The newsletter can also be accessed online through our website or facebook pages.

Once a month on the third Tuesday, Halswell Connections is a networking meeting for local residents, businesses and organisations to come together and discuss what is happening around the community and local issues.  Most months we have a speaker on a topic that is of interest, has been raised by the group or covers an issue in the community.  Details of each meeting can be found in our newsletter, on our web page and on facebook or you can subscribe here to join the mailing list



Halswell Community Project maintains several local facebook pages ranging from information to businesses. These include:
