Te Anau Project Hub opening to visitors

The Milford Opportunities Project Hub in Te Anau is opening for public drop-ins in December.

While the project has been working from the Te Anau Milford Opportunities Project Hub and running engagement sessions here regularly over winter, it has not been open for casual public drop-ins during this time. With the busy visitor season upon us, we are looking to reopen the hub to the public in December. This will enable locals, operators and visitors to call in ask questions and provide feedback. We’re currently in the process of recruiting for a person to fill the front desk role.

We’ll share opening hours once these are confirmed but in the meantime, you are welcome to email contactus@milfordopportunities.nz to arrange to come and visit the project and talk to us.

Farewell Fi

This month we farewelled a key member of our Engagement & Communications Team, Principal Engagement Advisor Fi Roberts who has been called back to her “blue whanau” to fill the role of District Prosecutions Manager for the Police.

Alongside her teammates, Fi worked hard to rebuild connections to the Project across local communities and beyond, embodying the project’s commitment to listen, understand and work to deliver positive change for people and place. She (and her four-legged sidekick Walt) will be missed by the whole Milford Opportunities team and stakeholders alike.

She said it was an honour to work with such amazing people/communities and in an incredible place, and her parting plea was that everyone “please take care and slow down on the roads!”

Go well Fi – we know you’ll be keeping an eye on progress.
