Peninsula Community Newsletter


After careful consideration, the team behind  Pānui Te Motu Kairangi – the Miramar Peninsula Newsletter –  has decided to end on a high note, announcing that the lucky 13th edition, published in Spring this year, will be the last. Since its first edition in December 2020, around 50,000 copies of this printed community newsletter have been hand-delivered to peninsula letterboxes. Pānui shared local events and stories and reflected the diversity of the Miramar, Seatoun and Strathmore Park communities. 

Pānui was a collaboration between the Miramar and Maupuia Community Centre, Seatoun Village Hall and Strathmore Park Community Centres. The publication team was committed to Pānui remaining largely advertisement-free and says that the decision not to continue it was due to the ongoing pressures to fund it.  

We started this fabulous journey in 2020. With the absence of any free local newspaper three Community Centres on the Miramar Peninsula (Strathmore Park, Miramar and Maupuia, and Seatoun) collaborated on Pānui Te Motu Kairangi.

Our fabulous community newsletter is delivered to 4500 households across the Peninsula, every quarter with the seasons, Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. Unfortunately not enough are available to be delivered to every household but it is always available online.

Our Why?

To foster connectedness, communicate community information plus stories of people and place.
This newsletter is for the community by the community.

Ma tini, ma mano, ka rapa te whai,
many hands make light work, unity is strength.

Copies are available at the three Community Centres, local libraries, cafes and stores across Te Motu Kairangi and can also be found at the Kilbirnie Library and Kilbirnie Lyall Bay Community Centre.
