Good in the Hood

The Wellington North Community Patrol has been selected for this year’s Z Good in the
Hood programme for the second year runnning.

"Vote for us to receive a share of $4,000 from Z Johnsonville!" says Cheryl Austin, coordinator for the Wellington North Community Patrol.

Wellington North Community Patrol is one of the four groups being supported through Good in the Hood at Z Johnsonville. That means our Community Patrol will get a share of $$$$ but how much depends on how many votes we get.

To vote, all you need to do is buy something from Z Johnsonville during September and you’ll be given an orange token to put in the voting box (or if you’re a Z card holder, you’ll get two votes!). 

So please head down to Z Johnsonville during September and vote for Wellington North Community Patrol! You can also support our patrol by encouraging people you know to vote too.

The Community Patrol is in partnership with New Zealand Police and helps prevent crime and reduce harm and victimisation through the active presence of trained patrollers across the Wellington North suburbs.

The area patrolled includes Ohariu, Churton Park, Glenside, Grenada Village, Woodridge, Paparangi, Johnsonville, Newlands, Broadmeadows and Ngauranga. Both residential and commercial businesses are covered.

In Glenside, the team patrols our roads and looks out for our businesses including Twiglands, Thyme Cafe and our Halfway House.

Patrol members can be called upon to assist in the event of large scale community events,
natural disasters and searches for missing persons.

The Glenside Progressive Assn. Inc is a loyal supporter of the Wellington North Community Patrol. We signed up the first two volunteers for the patrol, one of whom still patrols today! As sponsors, we have our name on the rear decal of the car, and we have supported the patrol with petrol vouchers.

The Patrol is a not-for-profit body and all members are volunteers.
