Summer in Selwyn is back with more events and ways than ever to enjoy your summer.

The Summer in Selwyn guide was delivered to Selwyn homes over the weekend (rural delivery arriving this week), providing information on more than 90 activity and event options available around the district until March.

For the first time, the Council has included guided walks, along with a list of activities families can do in their own time such as good walking and fishing spots, cycling tracks, playgrounds and picnic places.

“Selwyn has loads of organised activities over summer, but also plenty of natural features locals have been telling us about and we think this guide is a good way to let newer residents know more about the district and encourage people to make the most of them,” Council’s Community Services and Facilities Group Manager, Denise Kidd says. “We are also really proud of the huge range of organised activities and events that are on offer, with something happening most days – from craft or technology experiences to music and outdoors fun.”

Council events include two outdoor movies and two drive-in movies starting with a sprinkling of Christmas magic with The Santa Clause at the Lincoln Green on Sunday 15 December.

The popular Teddy Bears’ Picnic is back, along with Pool Parties in Sheffield, Darfield and Southbridge and a special Pool of Rock party at Selwyn Aquatic Centre. Our Libraries team has joined with Christchurch City Libraries to run a Whānau Fun day with stories, craft, technology and a Faerie Party in Lincoln in January.

There’s also a great line up of community organised events including fêtes, fitness events, picnics, Christmas parades along with Children’s Day activities around the district on 1 March. For a list of Summer in Selwyn activity and event options, see our events listings or our Facebook page
