Kaitangata's community hall now complete

  • Funding Stories

The town of Kaitangata has yet another reason to be proud, and had a chance to celebrate on Sunday. Following 8 years of hard work, and more than $1 million of fundraising, a brand new community centre is now opening its doors to the public.

Kaitangata has had a wonderful resurgence over the last three years and the commitment from the community to revitalise the small town has been inspirational to see. A recently completed skate park and bike jump park have added to the amenities on offer and have helped make it a place for kids, teenagers and young people. All of these community led projects have built positive relationships within the small community and given it a new lease of life. The official opening of the new community centre is a fitting reward for a community that has worked hard to realise their dream. 

Otago Community Trust was pleased to support the group with their project in November 2016 with a initial $120,000 grant and a second grant of $50,000 in 2017. 
The group also received funding from the Lottery Grants Board, A J and M C Begg Charitable Trust, Alexander McMillan Trust and the Clutha District Council and are well supported by several other businesses and entities.
