Join us to learn more about the Waihemo ward of the Waitaki District, and the projects the Puketapu Community Trust is working on to realise the potential of the area’s natural and man-made assets.

Our current projects are:

  • a new all-year-round track to the summit of Puketapu;

  • the return of the Palmerston Town Hall to community ownership and use;

  • continuing oral history recordings of local identities.

A presentation by the Puketapu Community Trust:

The Puketapu Community Trust has eight trustees and several advisers. We aim to improve living in this community by:

  • re-invigorating neglected activities and cultural infrastructure

  • preserving and promoting the best features of Waihemo to develop community pride

  • improving the visitor experience — for more than a “pee and a pie”.

We hope to achieve this by creating a future in which everyone benefits from our bi-cultural


6 - 7pm Thursday 16 September Scottish Hall, 10 Tyne Street, Ōamaru
