Kerikeri Sports Hub
The wider community of Kerikeri is growing . Rolls at the local schools have increased steadily over the past 5 years as have the rolls at our GP's and medical practitioners. More and more families are moving into the area which has also served to put pressure on our sports facilities and resources.
Kerikeri is home to the biggest Football Club in Northland with about 500 playing members . They have far outgrown their current facilities and exist purely on the goodwill of the local schools , but the Football Club is not alone . Most sporting codes within the local community do not have a place to call "Home". Gym Sports , Hockey , Rugby League , Squash , Cricket and Athletics to name a few .
What Kerikeri needs is a "Sports Hub" to accommodate all of these sports .
The Council have set aside funding in the FNDC Long Term Plan fo land purchase for the purpose of sporting activity . Over the past 12 months a steering group of local Business people have been working with a local landowner to develop a community sports hub on his land which would provide a base for all the sports codes .
To ensure the Council make this community development happen we need your help. If you are supportive of the concept and development of a Kerikeri Sports Hub which would only serve to further enhance the community as a whole , please sign below .
