Internal Affairs impressed with Kumara's progress

Kumara Residents Trust (KRT) hosted the Department of Internal Affairs staff last week in Kumara.

·        Robyn Nicholas - General Manager Community Operations, Department of Internal Affairs

·        Julia Main - Manager Regional Services, Canterbury/West Coast/Nelson/Marlborough

·        Penny Kirk – Community Advisor, Greymouth

·        Dyan Hansen – Community Advisor, Greymouth

This departmental visit is in support of Mike Keenan's Community Development Officer role, which is based in Kumara and Ross.

The feedback was positive and they were so complimentary of the work that volunteers are doing in our town.

For Kumara, it's great to have support from this government department and Mike's role, it helps keeps things moving and developing.
