who are we

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.

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.

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!
