Current location in the site

Dunsandel residents turned out in droves to celebrate the opening of the brand new Dunsandel Community Centre, which was officially opened on Friday evening.

The Dunsandel Community Centre Grand Opening was a huge successThe building replaces the original Dunsandel Community Hall, located in the township, which was demolished in 2012 after being damaged beyond repair in the 2010-2011 earthquakes. Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton says the $3.9 million Community Centre will be a fantastic asset to the Dunsandel area.

“A project like this doesn’t happen overnight and it doesn’t happen by accident,” he says. “It takes a lot of planning and contributions from a number of people.

“This beautiful building is a testament to the dedication of the community, with a total of $350,000 raised in donations, as well as generous contributions from Rata Foundation and The New Zealand Lottery Grants Board.”

The Hon Amy Adams MP performed the ribbon cutting, while speakers included Mayor Broughton, Dunsandel Community Committee chair Russell Dalzell, and committee member and former Selwyn District Council Councillor Nigel Barnett.

The new Community Centre is a multi-purpose facility which will be used by sporting and community groups, businesses, and for events. It includes a multi-purpose hall, reception area, dedicated meeting and training room spaces, along with kitchen and bar facilities, an office and storage space.

The contractor for the construction was Arrow International.
