We like to be involved with our local community in Hikurangi. We are involved with a number of local organizations including Friendship House, Hikurangi Business Association and we even sponsored a local race group called Cornfed Racing who you might see competing at the Whangarei Speedway.
Hikurangi Friendship House Charitable Trust was formed in 1983 and became a Charitable Trust in 1989 by locals working in the interest of our Community.
We purchased the Old Post Office Building in 1992 (with the help of the ASB) and after a lot of hard work we moved our Community Library into this in 1993, with a lot of volunteer help we are still running the Community Library today.
We manage the Hikurangi War Memorial Hall for hire. We Publish the monthly Hikurangi Bulletin, Liaise with the Whangarei District Council and Library, Drop in Centre, involved with Civil Defence and an Information Centre. We work with the Hikurangi Mountain Lions to help organize the Christmas Carnival.
