A bright future for Massey Community Hub

The Massey community will soon benefit from new programmes and activities delivered from the refurbished Massey Community Hub (The Hub).

Community organisation Massey Matters will move into The Hub at 385 Don Buck Road from 1 July 2017 to manage the facility and enable them to be more visible to the community they serve. They will also be able to extend their delivery of activities to East Massey.

“Our strong physical presence in The Hub will establish a connection to local residents to develop what they need to thrive. We have an exciting programme ready to roll out. More importantly, we are looking forward to reconnecting with the many residents who were part of the previous community house, building on what has gone before,” says Massey Matters Manager Laurel Belworthy.

“Massey Matters is dedicated to creating opportunities through connections and partnerships between residents, tangata whenua, community, groups, organisations and agencies. Our policy is one of an open door to you all. We look forward to meeting you soon – drop in for a cuppa and meet the team.”

Henderson-Massey Local Board recently approved the funding agreement and licence for Massey Matters to occupy and manage The Hub.

Board member Vanessa Neeson is excited to see Massey Matters move in.

“Moving The Hub from a council-run to a community-led model is in line with council’s Empowered Communities Approach. I know that Massey Matters is going to do some outstanding work to benefit the local community,” says Vanessa.
