Floral Carpet Event - Saturday 9 March, 1-4pm at the Sandringham Reserve
SPiCE invite you to Sandringham Reserve (in the Sandringham Village shops) Saturday 9 March to create a colourful community floral carpet.
If you've been growing marigolds (or any flowers) bring some flowers down to the Sandringham Reserve to add your colour to the carpet.
We will also have buckets of beautiful marigold flower heads for everyone to use.
There will be free ice cream, a dance performance by Tapasya School of Classical Dance, and a chance for you to talk with Urban Beekeepers on the day.
Help create Auckland's only annual floral carpet and celebrate the colourful blooms of summer before they go!
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.
The Sandringham Floral Carpet Festival is on again this year! FREE henna tattooing, music, and flower garland threading - fun for the whole family! Come down to the Sandringham Reserve on Saturday 17 March, 4.30pm

Thanks again for all your ideas for Sandringham Reserve, it was a great community-led project. The construction is just about finished and the big re-opening is almost here. Join us on 11 September to celebrate the new reserve.
Thank you everyone for your feedback in our recent survey, we've had a fantastic response.
We will be collating the responses and presenting them back to the community to agree on the priorities for Sandringham - you are invited to join us and help decide what these are on 28 May at Edendale School, any time between 2:30 and 5:00pm.
The comments contributed will become the foundation of a vision report which will be presented to the Albert Eden Local Board in June.
Please give us your feedback about the future of Sandringham and win. Fill in our short survey here to tell us about your vision for Sandringham. When you're filling it in, have a think about:
The information you and the rest of the community tell SPiCE about what you want for the future of Sandringham form part of an official vision document for Sandringham that the Local Board, Council, and the community can use when doing future projects.
Drop in to the Edendale Primary School Hall 28th May from 2:30-5pm to hear the feedback from the survey, and to have input into to the draft of the community led plan.
If you have any further questions or suggestions, or you'd like to learn more about SPiCE, please contact us: email@example.com
Come along to Sandringham Reserve (corner of Sandringham and Lambeth Roads) to help make Auckland's first flower carpet this Saturday February 13th from 10:30am!
Did you grow any marigolds over the summer? If so, bring your flowers and everyone can lay their flowers down to help create the rangoli inspired community flower carpet, joining those grown by other members of the community. Together the community will make a flower carpet!
At the event we will gather feedback on how you would like to see Sandringham as a whole developed in the future, to go into our Sandringham Vision Plan. Come to the tent and give feedback on Saturday and we'll have free samosas to say thanks.
Sandringham Reserve will be closed from April-June as the new playground and reserve redevelopment is built. Posters of what’s planned will be on show during the marigold event. It is a great chance for us to enjoy the reserve together before it is redeveloped!
We're looking forward to seeing you there!
Have you seen the marigolds in the Sandringham shops and reserve? SPiCE is getting ready for making a community flower carpet in Sandringham Reserve on 13 February. You can also grow your own marigolds to bring along on the day too!
Thank you everyone (100 responses!) for helping us choose which artist will guide the redesign of Sandringham Reserve. Together we chose Katy Wallace and her vision "Neighbourhood Picnic".
Katy's artist statement and images are below, and we'll have more information as the design is developed further.
Also, congratulations Sophie, winner of the $100 voucher to Paradise Restaurant.
Artist Statement: Designed as an interpretive space, use it how you like - ride your trike around the circular track, play ball on the rubber circle mat, have your takeaways lounging on the warm deck, send the kids off to set up a fort and swing from the trees on the playground. This is a design created from the identity of its place, food - culture and community make it what it is. It will be a welcome oasis for locals and visitors alike.
