Coordinator - Belinda Harte
My name is Belinda, I am your new Nelson Newcomers Network Coordinator and I work at Volunteer Nelson. Volunteer Nelson knows that volunteering is an excellent way of making new friends and feeling connected with your community, and so we are excited to be able to support Nelson Newcomers Network. The network is now 10 years old and we look forward to celebrating this anniversary later in the year.
I have lived all my life In Nelson, so I know what a great, friendly place it is and I’m keen to help you settle in too. If you have any questions, or if you would like to volunteer to assist us with the coordination of Nelson Newcomers Network, please do get in touch with me. I hope that you get involved with Nelson Newcomers Network, enjoy events and make friends.
If you are located in the Mapua or Ruby Bay area of Tasman & would like to join a local group based in Mapua, please contact Richard or Vivien (03) 526 6707
