The Board awarded the lease to a collective of community groups comprising Grow Sandringham, Auckland Central Community Shed (a group affiliated to MENZSHED New Zealand) and Make Like a Tree.

These groups plan a community hub centred on a skills shed (where older people not only men! pass on their skills to younger people), creative activities for young people and a repair cafe for household appliances. Other groups will be able to use the space, and the groups want to establish a community garden on the former bowling green.

This is a community-led initiative deeply rooted in the Sandringham community , says Board Chair Peter Haynes.

We ve said to these community groups, Here s your chance, now deliver on your plans to bring the community together in this space.

It s a new way of doing things for the old Auckland City Council area, but not so unusual in other parts of Auckland and the world.

I look forward to seeing this facility humming with activity next year.

Game on!
