- 13 young people employed through Workforce Programme to date
- Council agrees to financially support A&P Association vision

- Gift donations called for in Stratford district
Stratford’s Workforce Programme aims at connecting young people with employment opportunities, and it’s done exactly that for 13 keen workers within two months of launching.
The Mayors’ Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ) initiative launched in September and since then Stratford District Council has employed Lisa Holland as Workforce Coordinator in a part-time capacity.
At an Extraordinary Meeting of Council on Tuesday 24 November 2020, elected members agreed to loan the Stratford A&P Association $7.18m towards their vision of a multi-use facility in Stratford known as the ‘Stratford Park Project’.
More than 50 people were in attendance to hear the decision which was received with applause around the room.
The location of the new Children’s Bike Park in Stratford was blessed last week by matua Herewini Nopera of Whakaahurangi Marae in a ceremony supported by Council staff, elected members and local pre-schools. Construction work now getting underway and is due to be completed by April 2021.
Christmas is fast approaching and Stratford District Council is once again asking residents to donate gifts and bring a little extra joy to some of our local families in need.
The Mayoral Christmas Gift Appeal is a tradition in Stratford encouraging local residents to donate new or pre-loved toys and gifts in good condition.
