Christmas Update 🎄

Kia ora,

As we approach the end of another impactful year, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported Taranaki Catchment Communities. Your commitment has been crucial in shaping a more sustainable future that embraces environmental responsibility, economic growth and community collaboration.

Progress and achievements

Over the past year, Taranaki Catchment Communities has witnessed remarkable growth. Our communities have rallied together for a common purpose, and we’ve teamed up with different organisations to utilise resources more efficiently. And while we celebrate the progress made, we acknowledge there’s more work to be done.

Looking ahead, we remain committed to educating and supporting our rural communities as we’re expanding our programmes to reach more areas in the region. Please keep an eye on our website and social media for updates.

Hot off the press

The response to the launch edition of our newsletter was awesome. Please spread the word and encourage your contacts to subscribe to stay informed about what’s happening across the region. The next edition is due in March. Visit www.taranakicc.nz to sign up.
