Huntly placemaking

Kaupapa Whakarite ki Raahui Pookeka

With help from Huntly Community Board, Huntly Lions and residents, Garden Place is to be refurbished in the coming year starting with new seating around the tree, and little free libraries are planned for other spaces in the town.


Huntly Menzshed and the Friendship House is undertaking a collaborative project to build ‘little free libraries’ for the community of Huntly.

‘Little free libraries’ are a gathering point for the community.  Sparking community interactions will help enact the principles of Placemaking.

The project is in line with the Placemaking philosophy in that it begins with small-scale, do‑able improvements that can immediately bring benefits to public places and the people who use them.

Menzshed and the Friendship House approached the Huntly Community Board in August 2016 to seek financial assistance towards the project.
