Fabulous for Featherston!

Fab Feathy's application to the Community-led Development Programme was successful! We recently met with DIA, and the feedback on our application was that it was a straightforward decision for the Crown Panel. Awesome work Featherston! Learn more about this exciting initiative.

Little Evie

We won the use of an Electric Car!
Thanks to Genesis Energy, the Featherston Community Centre can now zip around in an eco-friendly Nissan Leaf , "Little Evie". The vehicle has been branded with the Centre logo and doesn't it look great! The Genesis Local Energy Project is also renting office space in the Centre so if you are considering going solar give Lydia a call at 027 588 4963. Check out this great article in the Wairarpa Times-Age.

Wairarapa Art Sale 2017

Wow that was fun! Check out some great photos of the opening night and gallery displays. Farewell to another successful Wairarapa Art Sale! Visitors bought over $8000 of fantastic local art, raising about $3000 for the Community Centre. For a place that runs on the smell of an oily rag, $3k will go far! And we got to help build a stronger arts community, bringing artists from all around the region together at our friendly, welcoming place - including at least 8 first time exhibitors.
