Roller skating, kite flying, outdoor movies and picnics are all on the way for Selwyn this summer, thanks to the Council’s annual Summer in Selwyn Event Guide 2022-23Summer in Selwyn events programme.

Copies of this year’s brochure are now available to pick up from Council facilities or download online, with activities for every member of the family.

The fun starts on Friday 2 December with an outdoor screening of The Muppet Christmas Carol movie in Leeston, while customised skateboards will be up for grabs the following weekend at the opening of the Rolleston Town Centre Youth Space on 11 December.

Mayor Sam Broughton says this year’s activities are bound to delight.

“Whether you’re eight or 80, there is something for everyone in the brochure. Popular favourites like the Teddy Bears’ Picnic and Summer Pool Parties are back, and there are a number of new events planned as well.”

“Selwyn is an amazing place to be in summer, so be sure to make the most of it at the more than 60 activities in this year’s Summer in Selwyn programme,” he says.

New activities this year include Jump and Juggle bouncy castles at the Selwyn Sports Centre on 20 January, and a chalk art competition in Lincoln, West Melton and Rolleston.

The brochure also features sport, library and recreation events at Council facilities, and showcases some of the district’s best family-friendly bike trails.
