Signing of partnership agreement!

Kia ora

Fab Feathy recently signed the five-year community-led development partnership with Department of Internal Affairs. Thank you to Martine Bijker and Rebekah Mehrtens for organizing the Fab Feathy & First Friday’s February Fiesta, and making it possible for us to celebrate this signing and opportunity with our community!

 

 

It was awesome to see community members, of all ages, supporting the opportunity and signing their names on a canvas to “support community-led develop initiatives in Featherston to shape ‘Our Future Featherston’ together.”

Fab Feathy expect to be recruiting for the role of Community-led Development Co-ordinator in March. Please keep an eye out on our project page http://featherstoncommunity.org.nz/category/fab-feathy for details on how to apply, as well as through other local forums. We will be finalising details of what skills and commitment are needed at the beginning of March when we hear the outcome of our first Community-led Development Programme funding request to DIA.

We are looking forward to working together with the community, and getting some great community-led initiatives off the ground in 2018!

If you would like about the community-led partnership with DIA, go to http://featherstoncommunity.org.nz/category/fab-feathy. There you can also check out the principles of community-led development, and have another read of the Our Future Featherston Community Plan. You can also find hard copies of the Community Plan at the Featherston Community Centre and the Featherston Library.
