Fun in the sun at Aranui’s AFFIRM8 December 2017
A windless 30 degree day set the perfect tone for this year’s AFFIRM Festival in Aranui on Saturday 2 December.
Area Manager Fraser, Senior Tenancy Managers Terry and Darryl (pictured left) and Stakeholder Relations Manager Ray hosted a Housing New Zealand tent with the theme of Home Safety and Comfort.
We were joined by staff from the Ministry of Social Development, Civil Defence & Emergency Management, Otautahi Community Housing Trust and the Cancer Society with its SunSafe and Smokefree campaigns.
This was the 16th annual AFFIRM Festival, a major event in Eastern Christchurch featuring kapa haka and Pacifica items; bands and foodstalls, and plenty of entertainment for children.
