Pest Control Night Shooting

Our contractor will be carrying out pest control night shooting on Wednesday 22 February and Thursday 23 February at the following areas:

  • Dolamore Park
  • Charlton Park Cemetery
  • Gore Cemetery
  • Mataura Cemetery
  • Pukerau Cemetery
  • Hamilton Park
  • Henderson Park,
  • Gore A and P Showgrounds
  • Bannerman Park

Visitor Centre extended hours

With the increase in visitors to the Gore District, we have decided to ensure we are catering for their needs by opening the Gore Visitor Centre earlier on a Sunday. The centre will be open from 10.00am to 4.00pm for the remainder of the summer.

This means people can ask our knowledgable consultants about the best places in the south and look through the Hokonui Moonshine Museum before heading away.

Creative Communities and Sports Travel funding applications open

Applications are open for financial assistance from the Creative Communities New Zealand scheme’s second funding round and the Sport New Zealand rural travel fund. Applications must be received by Friday 3 March 2017.

Creative Communities NZ Scheme

Funds available are for arts and cultural activities for distribution to projects that increase participation or the range and diversity of cultural activity within the community.

Projects should take place in the Gore District Council area and the benefits should be largely experienced within the District.

Sport New Zealand Rural Travel Fund

Funds are available to assist with travel costs for junior teams (aged between 5 and 19 years) participating in local winter sports competitions. The fund is not available for travelling to regional or national events.

Application forms, together with detailed information, are available on our Grants and Funding page, or they can be collected from the civic administration building in Gore, the Mataura service centre, the Gore library or by phoning (03) 209 0330.

Flush Water Before Drinking

The Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a mugful of water from your drinking water tap each morning, before use, to remove any traces of metals from the plumbing fittings that may have dissolved. This simple precaution is recommended for all households in the District, whether on public or private water supplies, as trace metals in water can pose a small risk to your health.
