The signs are up - we're about to open the doors but we need volunteers with big smiles and free time. Volunteer power is also needed to help with the exciting week of events planned from 21 November 2019.

Community Patrol New Zealand
The Blenheim Community Patrol group have undertaken to set up a patrol in Picton. Picton patrol would work under the umbrella of Blenheim Community Patrol which means there wouldn’t be a need for a committee in Picton with the exception of needing someone to manage a roster and report to Blenheim Community Patrol at the monthly meetings either in person or via email. There may be some fundraising activities required as identified by the group but a lot of it is being sourced at present.
Volunteers need to commit to a few hours ideally once a month (if enough volunteers are available). The days would be decided by the group, but some day patrols would be required during school holidays and the cruise ship season. These would also be walking patrols. All this to be decided as the group gets organised.
If you think this is something you would like to contribute time to then please contact the group by email.
