We were really excited to get the news recently that Arrowtown is a finalist in the Most Beautiful Small Town category of Keep New Zealand Beautiful's awards.
It's an honour to have been nominated by a former resident of Arrowtown. The awards celebrate environmental excellence, and we're proud to learn that the decision to put us through to the final was partly based on the Shaping Our Future Arrowtown document (of which we are the guardians) and on this website.
Of course we also have our many local environmental groups, such as Predator Free Arrowtown, Arrowtown Choppers, Wakatipu Reforestation Trust – the list goes on – to thank for their huge contribution too!
Now it's a race for the line with Waiheke Island to see who will emerge as the champion. We're working with the Arrowtown Promotion and Business Association to put together a video package...and then we'll have to wait until later in the year when the winners are announced.
