Wanganui Floods

Community Arts Centre Flooded

The past few weeks have been very eventful in Wanganui, and not in the most positive sense, as the region is recovering from the most devastating flood the region has seen in a century. The affected buildings included the Whanganui Community Arts Center, the location of the Starting point Exhibition for the Artists Open Studios Art Trail.

The building was damaged by the raising waters, but thanks to community volunteers the repair works have started started as soon as the water drained away

Recovery underway

Help those affected

We wish all the strength and energy to those working hard on the recovery efforts. To help with the recovery efforts you can donate online to the New Zealand Red Cross who have launched an appeal to further help those hardest hit with the floods.
