Greenwoods Corner’s new historic shield at the intersection of Manukau and Pah Roads provides an interesting glimpse into the past.
The area has seen a lot of change from its days of grand homesteads and sprawling farmland but still manages to retain a village charm that is not easily replicated.
We are hugely grateful to Dr Helen Laurenson of the Epsom Eden District Historical Society for researching the content for the shield and to our friends at Epsom Dolls and Craft for painting the signage post.
Greenwoods Corner Epsom Business Association was recently the recipient of Epsom Rotary’s generous donation of an AED.
AEDs are portable, lightweight devices that analyse the heart’s rhythm and if necessary, deliver an electric shock, known as a defibrillation, to help restore the heart’s natural rhythm.
Having an AED in the community can make the difference between life and death. St John New Zealand notes that the use of an AED can increase someone’s survival chances by up to 44%. Without an AED, the chance of survival decreases by 10% for each minute that passes without defibrillation.
The AED will be stored at On Point Physio, 594 Manukau Road, and is readily available for public use during their hours of operation in the case of an emergency.
On 24th May 2021 Greenwoods Corner Epsom Business Association celebrated its first year of operation… and what a year it has been!
Thanks to the support of our members, the Albert-Eden Local Board, Albert-Eden Neighbourhood Arts, Epsom Rotary, the Epsom and Eden District Historical Society and our committed executive committee members, we have got off to a strong start.
A special thank you to Gaylene Brownlie for hosting the event at Gardner Road Kindergarten and to all of our members that were able to join us.
As we begin our second year, we look forward to what the future holds for Greenwoods Corner Epsom. Your village in the city!
Greenwoods Corner Epsom Business Association is delighted to announce its installation of new
local area signage.
“Welcome to Greenwoods Corner” and “thank you for visiting Greenwoods Corner” signs have now
been erected along Manukau and Pah Roads.
Our refurbished Greenwoods Corner Community Notice Board is even sporting the area’s new logo!
A big thank you to Dr Helen Laurenson of the Epsom Eden District Historical Society who
researched the content for our new local area history sign and to the Albert-Eden Local Board for
their continued financial support.
During summer 2021 a new canopy will be installed by the Greenwoods Corner Epsom Business Association on the pergola at the crossroads of Manukau and Pah Roads (outside the former ASB Bank).
The pergola itself has already been sanded and repainted by some of our awesome volunteers, and following a vote at the Business Association’s launch event, the colour chosen for the new canopy was… black.
Final designs for the canopy have been approved and fabrication will begin shortly. Watch this space!
Over the summer of 2020 and 2021, Greenwoods Corner Epsom Business Association worked together with Chorus, 2Degrees and Vector to create a three-part native flora and fauna art installation to reflect the proximity of the Greenwoods Corner Business Area to Maungakiekie/ One Tree Hill.
The enormously talented graffiti artist _G_A_S_P_ was commissioned by the business association to bring the vision to life and infuse some colour and vibrancy into three transmission boxes along Claude Road and Ngaroma Road.
The three installations featuring tui, silvereye and kingfisher are unique in their own right and are well worth a visit in person to appreciate!
Greenwoods Corner Epsom Business Association celebrated its establishment with a launch party on 16th November 2020. Jono Pryor (TV and Radio Personality), Rachel Langton (Albert-Eden Local Board) and Joanne Plant (Business Association President) were guest speakers at the hugely successful event.
After an initial welcome and some networking, guests were invited to participate in a “world café” event as part of the evening. The aim of this was to collect and link ideas on four key topics relevant to the focus and ongoing operation of the business association, namely:
Following the launch, the answers to each of these questions have helped the business association to identify its short, medium and long-term goals and serve as guidance to the committee to ensure that their actions and decisions reflect the interests and aspirations of their members.
Guests were also asked to vote on the colour of the new canopy that the business association have commissioned for installation on the pergola at the crossroads of Manukau and Pah Roads (outside the former ASB Bank). Check out our New Canopy Installation news update for the result.
Grazing table food for the event was supplied by Greenwoods Butchery, Forest Eatery Café, Ninja Sushi, Greenwoods Bakery and The General.
Bouquets and floral arrangements for the event were donated by Molly Blooms.
Vouchers for the event were donated by On Point Physio, Exile Hair Design and The General.
We are hosting an event and you are invited. Come along and hear about our Association and share with us your vision.
