Join the Board of the Featherston Community Centre Charitable Trust

The Featherston Community Centre board are looking to recruit more board members to help keep the great working going that we already do. Have you ever thought about joining a board but haven't made the leap yet? Now is definitely the time!

What I really enjoy about being a part of the board is a sense that I'm really helping to keep a valuable part of Featherston alive and progressing toward a really bright future. Not only that, but I get to learn new things, contribute to ideas and projects that are interesting and meet passionate and clever people. So I would highly recommend coming to talk to us if you think this might be something you'd be interested in. Please call and have a chat to our chair Emily (021 313 8042) or Centre Manager Siv (06 308 8239) or email us at You totally won't regret it! (Tamara)

Wairarapa Art Sale 2016 – a great success!

Wairarapa Art Sale 2016 – a great success!

The Wairarapa Art Sale was a great success for the Centre and our local artists! More than 130 works were on display over the weekend, and with over 70 art works sold, we fundraised well over $2000 for the Centre! We also had a ball on the opening night - what a lovely community Featherston is!!!

We want to thank all Wairarapa Art Sale Exhibiting Artists who exhibited their work, and all our wonderful Volunteers & Sponsors who helped make this a very successful event! We also want to thank Geoff Wooles for providing a wonderful landscape design for the Centre - which is the project for which we are currently fundraising for. Thank you also to everyone who commented on the plan and provided ideas for the project!

Thank you!!!... and let's do it again next year!
