Media Statement – Carterton Summer Street Party returns

Following on from the successful inaugural Carterton Summer Street Party in 2017, Carterton District Council is proud to once again host this popular community event.

Summer is the perfect time to reconnect with residents, old and new, and what better way to do this than have a street party, says coordinator Robyn Cherry-Campbell.

“Last year proved how keen our residents are to connect with each other. Closing Holloway Street, and providing our community with a great family friendly atmosphere is really important to us, it’s especially neat to welcome our newer residents and show them what a cool community they live in.”

The resident’s street party is being held on Sunday 9th December from 4-7pm, with food trucks on Holloway Street and cash bar situated in the Carterton Events Centre.

There will be no shortage of entertainment with children’s activities planned, and music will be provided by well-known Irish band, The Shenanigans.

“We are so lucky to have once again secured The Shenanigans to perform for us, they were a huge hit last year, and we cannot wait to see people, young and old, dancing together and having fun.”

The free community event is organised by council but supported by the Carterton business community.

“Without doubt we could not run these great community events without the sponsorship of our local Carterton businesses. We are so grateful to Property Brokers, Go Carterton, LJ Hooker and Lamb Peters for understanding how important it is to provide these events for our residents.”

Robyn encourages everyone attending to keep up to date with the latest information by following Carterton Summer Street Party on Facebook.

“It’s a licensed event, so its strictly NO BYO, and NO GLASS, we also want to let people know that there will be streets closed and no parking down Holloway Street, so check out Councils website for which streets will be out of action –”

Most importantly Robyn wants everyone in Carterton to come along!

“This is a street party for our community. Invite your friends, family and next-door neighbours to come along; bring your deck chairs, picnic rugs and bean bags – meet the new members of our community and reconnect with those you already know.”

“We’ll see you all there!”
