News and information relevant to our members.

A 'Kaiapoi Brand' breakfast was held last Wednesday, providing an opportunity for members of the Kaiapoi community to share ideas about the next step in creating a 'Kaiapoi Brand'.

This followed a Peter Kenyon breakfast last year where the champion of small towns from Australia had inspired the audience.

The breakfast was well attended with good positive responses. The community at large was well represented with Community Groups, Property Developers, Local Business, and the members of the local Council present. Some very useful information was presented by our speakers, Margaret Cook MNZM and Brydon Heller, and some good action points for us to work came from the following discussion facilitated by councillor Dan Gordon.

We are now working to collate the discussion points offered by the attendees and use them to generate an outline of how to move forward.

All those who attended the breakfast have been added to our Kaiapoi Brand mailing list, including those that have to give their apologies, and will be kept informed of developments as we progress.

We have scheduled the next event for November 2019 where, subject to final confirmation, Craig Rust (Acting Chair of ENC) has agreed to present.
