The Westmorland Residents Association website was first established in January 2007, for the benefit of residents in the Westmorland and Worsley areas, as well as for local businesses. The primary function of the site is to provide residents and business owners, within the geographical districts of Westmorland and Worsley, information on such matter as:
- Local Issues and Events
- Local Government (Community Board & City Council)
- Bus Timetables, Rubbish Collection etc.
- Opportunity to announce Community Events
- A regular Community Newsletter
- Information about local Businesses and Services

We’ve had an approach from Council, regarding the extensive planting of native plants over the past few years, both by Council and by our own community. Council advise that there are reports of unauthorised mountain bike tracks being built, which are putting the viability of the planting in jeopardy.
Rather than having individuals building their own tracks, Council suggest people should contact them first, and should consider aligning themselves to one of the existing trail building enterprises – such as Gravity Canterbury, or the Christchurch Adventure Park (see their links below).

Committee Changes for 2018/2019
Following our recent WRA Annual General Meeting, we said "farewell" and a big "thank you" to Committee member Stephanie Dobson, who has moved out of the area, and a big "Welcome" to Jill Kinley and Lindsay Sandford, who has joined the Commitee for 2018/2019.
We have some other changes, with Bill Kingston giving up the Chairman's role - but thankfully staying on the Committee - and Carole Penny who has relinquished her Secretary role, but is also stayng on the Committee. A huge "thank you" to Bill and Carole for the great work they have both done over many years.
The Chairman's role has been taken on by Lindsay Richards, and Jill Kinley is the new Secreatary. A full list of your Committee can be found on the "Contact Us" page.
In July 2017 we set up a Facebook page which is intended to be a source of information within the community, for the community. One of the benefits is that we can quickly disperse urgent information as necessary - such as in the event of a fire, or flooding etc. We invite you to join the page and contribute. As it is a "closed" group, you will be asked to answer 3 simple "validation" questions to qualify for acceptance.
Please Note: Our Facebook page is Westmorland Residents Association NOT the Westmorland Community page.
