Dear Guest

The weather may be turning but progress certainly isn't cooling off in the region's commercial developments. Waimak Junction, Ravenswood and Silverstream are all forging ahead with exciting new tenants confirmed, and businesses are already opening at Mandeville Village. With a raft of new businesses opening this month and a number of others in the pipeline, it's shaping up to be an exciting winter in North Canterbury. To celebrate the exceptional businesses in our region, we are inviting businesses to enter the 2018 North Canterbury Business Awards which were launched earlier this month.

Kind regards,

Heather Warwick, CEO
