Coordinator - Christine

Christine - Waitaki Newcomers Network

Hello. My name is Christine and I am delighted to have taken on the role as the Waitaki Newcomers Network Co-ordinator. What a fabulous job getting to meet new people and help them make contacts and settle into the Waitaki area.

I was born and bred in Oamaru and then lived in Dunedin and Ashburton, finally returning to my home town. It is a great place and my husband and children love living here, but we also have a good understanding of what it is like to be a new person in a new town. It isn’t always easy, so I invite you to sign up to the newcomers group and join in some of the activities and hopefully make some new friends along the way. Whether you’ve been here for five months or five years, you are very welcome to become part of the group. Hope to meet you soon.
