Community

Caring for our Community is a page in the local newspapers where community organisations can promote themselves and their projects to readers in Kapiti and Horowhenua. It gives the opportunity to a new group each week to spread the word about itself, blow its own horn, encourage new members and specifically highlight the positive work it does in the community.

The page also highlights local walks or places to visit, features energy related information such as energy saving tips and product offers, plus any other information that might be of interest to customers of the Electra Group of companies.

You can read our archived issues in the folders below.
