At the Greenhithe Community Trust our vision is a vibrant, healthy and caring community.
Our mission is to equip Greenhithe community with practical ways to achieve this vision. We do this by drawing together resources and services, and by mobilizing the community to make Greenhithe a better place to live.
GCT is sourcing funds from local government, grants and local businesses to assist the following Greenhithe community projects this year to be as good as they can be:
Here are some other projects that GCT has been part of in the last year:
Know Your Street (and love it!) 2018
Well done Greenhithe on another round of street BBQs over summer. The purpose was to have fun getting to know your neighbours. And also discussing Neighbourhood Support, Civil Defence and Keeping Greenhithe Green.
A Transpower Grant Triggers a Pest Control Revolution in Greenhithe
A large grant to GCT from Transpower’s Community Care Fund has given a major boost to community pest control efforts in Oruamo/Hellyers Creek. The 140 hectares of beautiful native forest has been labelled a high priority area. The fund will provide 250 Goodnature self-resetting gas traps which are great for the steep difficult terrain. Richard Chambers has been engaged though a Lotteries Environmental grant to lead the project for 2018.
Loving Our Greenhithe Reserves
It is wonderful to see our community working together in our local reserves. Here are some pictures of the Chinese Conservation Education Trust working in Outlook Reserve. And Kaipatiki Trust working in Wainoni Park. For more information or if you have ideas about a bush rescue contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Coastline Clean Up February 4
80 people from Greenhithe community and surrounding areas worked hard to clean up the Lucas Creek coastline on a warm calm day in February. The Sea Cleaners barge provided transport, expertise, and took away all the rubbish. Shelley did a fantastic job making all the arrangements. Greenhithe Community Trust provided the BBQ lunch. Thanks everyone! Who would have thought it would be that much fun!

Greenhithe has a shared community space at No.12 Greenhithe Road. Here we are hosting general community parenting courses, youth groups, friendship groups, newcomers groups, an op shop and regular counselling sessions. It is all about Neighbourhood Support! The bustling community hub at No.12 has had a recent improvement - a new car park for 10 cars!
