Celebrating our lockdown legends

Published on 23 December 2020


We have some pretty incredible people and organisations in Upper Hutt and during lockdown, a number of them went over and above to support our community.

Whether it was knitting clothes, supplying toiletries, packaging and delivering food parcels, supporting the elderly or delivering play packs for kids, they had it covered.

To acknowledge their efforts, our Community Development team have put together two videos, one to highlight the work of these organisations and one about Orongomai Marae, who played a huge part in the support made available to our community during lockdown.

Grab a cuppa and hear about their experience and how coming together helped some of our most vulnerable so much.
