Waikanae Volunteer Fire Brigade
We have 2 members of staff that are also members of the Waikanae Volunteer Fire Brigade. Susie has been with the brigade for 7 years and Emma 14 Years.
Kāpiti AED Trust
Susie and Emma, along with Sarah Sundgren and another member of the Waikanae Volunteer Fire Brigade, run the Kapiti AED Trust. The Trust was set up as a reponse to the lack of publicly accessible 24/7 heart defibrillators. The Trust has successfully arranged for nine AED’s to now be available in the Kapiti area and has run regular free training sessions, so far training over 1000 people.
The reception area at Hobson Mills Law Limited Waikanae office is an art gallery, displaying photographs, hand made glass by Keith Grinter, ink and dye works by Dyani Wynn and custom made jewellery by Diane Connal.
This space has also been used for Kapiti Arts Trail and book launches.
