- IN BRIEF
Centre blessedAfter nine months of construction, the new Bunnythorpe Community Centre was blessed last week with representatives of the community, contractors and Palmerston North City Council present. Residents in the village have been pushing for a meeting place since its old hall was pulled down in 2008 when the village was under the Manawatū District Council boundary. Bunnythorpe became part of Palmerston North in 2012 and in 2018 discussions between the community and council restarted about constructing a community centre in the village. The centre has a 168sq m meeting room, a kitchen, changing rooms and bathrooms. It has been designed in a way that it could be expanded later.
