Rec Centre programme aims to reflect diverse community interests
The Lyttelton Rec Centre has always been an intergenerational hub of the Lyttelton community. Project Lyttelton has been in a partnership with CCC to reactivate the space and create a community-led governance group to guide its ongoing management.
Lyttelton Rec Centre Facility Manager Nathan Mauger has been appointed to ensure the smooth running of the facility for the diverse range of programmes and user groups.
Locally born-and-raised, the former All Black and Canterbury coach has enjoyed reconnecting with people from his youth and meeting new locals. He remembers a Rec centre that was a thriving community hub, with gatherings and inter-generational activities.
Nathan is excited to be back in Lyttelton and put together a programme that caters to a wide range of interests and grows the Rec Centre user community.
