Paengaroa Community Association behind local community space

Sunday just gone, Tracey and I had the privilege of meeting some of the locals behind the community space being envisioned for Paengaroa. We were excited to see fencing going up in full swing, Pizzas provided by The Trading Post and Beverages supplied by others. We know that it takes a lot of discussion, planning and consent for community spaces to get the go ahead, and we are excited about the future development of this sense of place. If you are heading through Paengaroa and want to check it out, call in to The Trading Post and ask for Cliff McNaughton the new chairman of the Paengaroa community association inc. A great and hospitable guy, who, along with others, envision, act and get in and do the mahi.

The Paengaroa Community is a mix of residents from Paengaroa Village and the surrounding rural area bounded to the north by Maketu, to the east by Te Matai, to the west by Pongakawa district and to the south by the Roydon Downs and Maungarangi Roads. 

Although some of the original families still live in the area, much of the population have settled in the area within recent years.

The district is predominantly connected directly with horticulture and agriculture, but there is a significant proportion of the community who find employment in commercial and industrial businesses, both locally and in neighbouring centres. Rangiuru freezing works and ComvitaKKP, are all major employers.

The community has access to a large community hall, as well as extensive sports grounds and courts which are administered by the Eastern Districts Rugby and Sports Club.

Pre-school education is undertaken at the  Paengaroa Kindergarten. The Kindergarten is located on Paengaroa School grounds.

The district is well located to take advantage of the lifestyle that the Bay of Plenty has to offer. The climate is excellent, two cities ( Rotorua and Tauranga) are each only 45 minutes away,  and the region is up with the leaders in the country for growth and development. 

The beaches and a whole range of outdoor recreation facilities and opportunities are all within close proximity.
