Kaharoa Community Association

w: www.kaharoa.co.nz

The Kaharoa Community and Hall Society Incorporated was created on 12 April 2005 with the amalgamation of the Kaharoa Community Association (KCA) and the Kaharoa Public Hall Society Inc (1923).

The KCA was formed on 16 October 2000 with the special objective of purchasing and developing land to create a public domain for use by the community. This was achieved and the domain sits around the Kaharoa school fields.

The main objectives today for the Community Association are:

  • To provide social events/entertainment for the enjoyment and fellowship of the community.
  • To work in partnership with local/national bodies. E.g. Neighbourhood Support and Civil Defence programs.
  • To represent the community in obtaining services/facilities and amenities from local and national statutory bodies.

The annual KCA membership fee is $25.00 per family. The benefits of KCA membership include:

  • Discounted hire rates for Kaharoa Hall
  • Free listing of your business in our Local Business Directory
  • Free posting of Community Notices
  • Supporting the our area Civil Defence and Neighbourhood Support efforts
  • Helping to maintain Kaharoa Hall and the domain grounds.
  • The good feeling that you are supporting your community and making it a better place to live!

The KCA meets at the Kaharoa Hall on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7:30pm. The Annual General Meeting is held in March/April each year and all residents in the area are welcome to come along.

At committee meetings we discuss hall maintenance, improvements & hireage, arrange social activities & events and discuss all issues of interest to the community. Matters such as roading, future water sources, property rates and community safety are raised with the Mayor and Councillors with whom we meet with on a quarterly basis.

The current committee have recently obtained and installed the acoustic baffles and new heating system for the hall. They have hosted pot luck dinners, movie nights, quiz competitions and dances.
The meetings are informal and open to any one to attend. We are interested in any issue that impacts on the greater Kaharoa, Te Pu communities.
