Hi SPiCE crew (and other interested members of the Sandringham Community), 

It's time for another get together, this time at the Sandringham Community Center on Kitchener St next Monday 27th starting at 6:30pm

We will use the first hour from 6:30-7:30 to catch up with what's been happening since we last met.

At 7.30pm we have a presentation from Duncan Ecob* and Ginny Pedlow from Isthmus group's  Urban Design arm.They are working on an urban master planning project which includes the Sandringham area. We have invited them along to find out more about what they are doing, what will happen with their work and to see how SPiCE can advocate for Sandringham/ get involved in the process.

Pop-Up Party in the Sandringham Reserve

We're throwing a Pop-Up Party in the Sandringham Reserve this coming Saturday 10 November 1-4pm. It is a family friendly fun day and there will be face painting, a bouncy castle, and FREE samosas!

The party is to celebrate the Reserve and playground upgrade that the community was involved in, and to celebrate the new community-led partnership relationship that SPiCE now have with the Department of Internal Affairs. There are 12 community groups throughout NZ that the DIA has chosen for this relationship and SPICE are proud to be one of them.
