West Coast's 'Untamed Natural Wilderness' Brand Recognised

Thursday, June 15, 2017
We love the West Coast branding using the words Untamed Natural Wilderness, we think it's a perfect fit for our region. So we're especially stoked that the brand has seen the West Coast Regional Council become a finalist at the 2017 Local Government NZ Excellence Awards. We wish them all the best at the awards function in July. 

The Awards recognise and celebrate excellent performance by councils with regard to community engagement, environmental impact, infrastructure management, economic development, cultural vibrancy, and overall value and service delivery.

Kids Learning About Skydiving

Tuesday, June 13, 2017
Here's the next generation of skydivers and pilots learning about skydiving and flying. It was awesome to host the Franz Josef Kea and Cub Scouts and amazing to see how many of them can fit in the plane and still have room - eleven kids all up. We sponsor the Franz Josef Scout group to help these kids with camps, equipment, supplies and fees as we believe every child has the right to an adventure and we love the three Scout values: have respect, do what is right, be positive.
