10.1     Harbour Sport funding request

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To enable the local board to consider a late application for funding for a proposed Matariki event being organised by Harbour Sport.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       A letter has been received from Harbour Sport (Attachment A) requesting $4000 funding for a Matariki event that is being organised for Saturday, 7 July 2018, at Massey University. The event will be a collaborative effort between Massey University, Harbour Sport, Albany Community Hub and Rosmini and Carmel Colleges’ Māori Student Group.

3.       The proposed event targets Upper Harbour’s new migrant community and is an opportunity to share Māori culture with this community, and increase bicultural understanding and cross community links.

4.       The proposed programme (Appendix 2 of Attachment A) involves a range of activities exploring aspects of Māori culture, craft and Te Reo, together with a hangi. It concludes by 2 pm with a karakia and speeches.

5.       This is the second year that this event has been run and feedback received from participants last year was very positive (Appendix 1 of Attachment A).

6.       In the normal course of events, funding should have been sought for this event via one of the local board’s contestable funding rounds. The letter states that “with Matariki fast approaching, and a late confirmation of a group willing and available to deliver these activities during what is a very busy time for the Maori community, we have not been able to secure a quote and explore funding avenues at an earlier time.”

7.       Depending on decisions made on other agenda reports for the 21 June 2018 local board meeting, there should be sufficient un-allocated funds in the local board’s locally delivered initiatives budget to meet this request.


Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Upper Harbour Local Board:

a)      consider providing financial support for the Harbour Sport 2018 Matariki event.
