Ngā mihi o te Tau Hou and a Happy New Year for 2019. We hope you all had a fantastic holiday break and have returned refreshed and ready for the new year.
We've got plenty of good news to share on Ngā Puna Wai with two major sporting events booked in for February and March ahead of the venue's official grand opening on 08 March 2019. We're looking forward to seeing you all down there to enjoy free entry to the first day of the New Zealand Track & Field Championships, check out the amazing facilities and enjoy this amazing community space.
Canterbury Rugby League will also be hosting an opening event on the brand new Community Fields next month.
I'd like to take this opportunity to extend my thanks for the courageous and tireless support from the Christchurch’s recreational and sporting community in creating this facility.
Without the courage, vision and belief of our city’s elected members, the incredibly generous support of partners and funders and the relentless support our wider community, we couldn't have succeeded in creating this wonderful community space for future sporting generations to thrive.
