Everything Selwyn website launched

Current location in the site

A group of community agencies in Selwyn, supported by the Council, have launched a one-stop shop with information on everything residents and newcomers need to know about the district.

The Everything Selwyn website will become a comprehensive online directory of services in the Selwyn district, offering information about everything from local schools and sports teams to special interest groups and events.

It also provides practical information for those new to Selwyn and New Zealand, including information about banking, the IRD and health care.

Jason Flewellen, Selwyn District Council’s Community Development Advisor says Everything Selwyn is an easily accessible community database for anything of interest to Selwyn residents, those who have been here a while, as well as those brand new to the area.

“The website is a go-to for the community to find out the latest, and also let others know about their own events and services. Adding a listing is super easy and free,” he says.

The concept for the website was developed out of the research findings from the Selwyn District Council’s Migrants and Newcomers Strategy.

The website has been developed by Council in conjunction with Selwyn’s four community care groups.

Beverley Elder of the Malvern Community Care Group says Everything Selwyn will enable all newcomers to Selwyn to learn about the area.

“The more people use the website, the more useful it will be as a constant flow of information to help people find what they are looking for,” Mrs Elder says.

Members of the Selwyn community are encouraged to upload their own events and services, to populate the website.

Go to the Everything Selwyn website for more information and to add listings.
