Welcome Bags

We love the Lyttelton community and want all new residents to love it to. With the help of Lyttelton TimeBank members we put together a hand-made cloth bag full of useful info and goodies to welcome you to your new home.welcome bags project lyttelton

Typically the bag contains:

  • Bus and ferry time tables
  • Info about local organisations and community groups
  • Seeds from the Community Garden
  • Some home baking
  • A map of Lyttelton
  • Any other goodies/vouchers/useful info we can get our hands on!

If you are a new resident and would like a bag or know someone who is new and should receive one please email the timebank at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Also do be in touch if you are a local group/business and are keen to contribute to the bags or if you are a local resident and would like to help with bag stitching/baking/co-ordination for this project....
