It takes a village – Tē Pātē Community Space takes home a Kūmera Awards 

Te Rā Nui is thrilled to annouce the local initative - Tē Pātē Community Space took home the award for Mā te haukāinga hei tūāpapa ki te ao tūroa (it takes a village) award.

Since it’s soft launch in 2023, thanks to the space’s local Porirua Timebank kiatiaki group, Tē Pātē Community Space has been hosting a daily homework group for tamariki after school, a mums and bubs group and Orange Sky Monday mornings between 9.30 and 11.30 am and many more community-led activities.

Tē Pātē Community Space was created in response to the community’s aspiration for the area. In early 2020, a group of community members approached Te Rā Nui about the need for a few to use local space for rangatahi and the wider community – and we happily took up the challenge.

Located between ‘the cage’ and the Cannons Creek Shops, Tē Pātē has been fitted out with a kitchenette, heat pump, drinking fountain, and seating. It’s also been fitted out with an accessible ramp, deck and capacity for up to 20 people inside, and more outside making it a great little space for small groups or indivduals to come together.

If you’re interested in using Tē Pātē Community Space – why not reach out to the local Porirua Timebank kiatiaki group a line on tepate5024@gmail.com or pop in for a cuppa.
