FCC Needs You

GiveaLittle Campaign

Please consider a $25 annual donation! Established in 1992, the Featherston Community Centre is owned by a trust on behalf of the community. Rental fees cover half of our expenses. For the rest we rely on grants, donations and services in kind. Please help us by making a tax-refundable donation on our GiveALittle page.

Thank you!

It's AGM time! Thurs 10 Aug 2017 19:30

And with it a chance to meet with the Board of Trustees who will share the Annual Report for 2017 for the past year. There'll be no resolutions or voting at the AGM, but questions are always welcome. Click here for the 2017 Agenda Following presentations from the Board, we'll hear from a special guest speaker from the Genesis Local Energy Project who the FCC is working with in partnership via a loan of an electric vehicle, Little Evie. As always, the fire will be on and we will close the evening with a light supper.

Campaign to Save Our Billboards

Thank you for your kind donations! We have raised $600 and this campaign is now closed. Four of Kathy Bartlett's billboards have been on loan at the entrance of the Featherston Community Centre. Now through this Givealitte campaign you have helped raise $600 for these four plus and additional two remaining portraits in this series. Thank you for helping us keep this taonga for the good folk of Featherston. Link to our Givealittle Billboard Campaign.

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.
