I live in Central Hawke’s Bay surrounded by 3 generations of my family. And I want to see a thriving Central Hawke’s Bay district that caters for us all – young and old – so that we can live and work here together for many years to come.
Project Thrive is the time for a conversation with you about the most important things you need in securing a future in CHB. What do we need in our towns? On our farms? In our villages? Thinking about business, education, transport, connectivity, farms, rivers…..what do we need to do create a thriving future? We want to get creative – and we need your help! Please find a time to come and have a chat with us – at the meetings, online or give us a call.

Some plumbing fittings have the potential to allow minute traces of metal to accumulate in water standing in the fittings for several hours.
Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends that you flush a cupful of water from your drinking water tap each morning before use to remove any metals that may have dissolved from the plumbing fittings. We are recommending this simple precaution for all households, including those on public and private water supplies.

Hello, my name is Cassie O’Dowd, I am 16 years old and I joined the Inspire team last year. Through my love of Epic Ministries and a gateway placement there last year, I tried to get involved in as many things to do with epic as I could – the youth council being one of them. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to be a bigger part in helping the youth in our community and managed to score a part time job this year doing exactly that. My hopes for the future are to be either pursuing a career in performing arts or youth work. I hope that no matter what career I follow through with, I eventually one day will be able to take my skills that I have learnt and work overseas in under developed countries, helping the youth of the world on a larger scale – whether that be next year or 40 years down the track.
Hi my name is Isaiah Tiuka and I am 17 years old. My aspiration for the future is to help others. I have been in the inspire team since year 9, four years running, and youth council is something I really believe in. My hope for the inspire youth council is that it will continue to grow and strive as an integral part of the community.
Hello my name is Alex Coddington, I am 17 years old, a former student of Flemington Primary, and now a House Captain at CHBC. When I leave school next year I am working to study Chemical Engineering and continue working with youth. I serve for my faith and as my own form of worship, I love being a part of the youth council and engaging with the community.
Hi my name is Joshua Schaumkel and I am 17 years old. I aspire to pursue a career in music as well as become a leader of tomorrow. I enjoy leading others onto the path of the future. Utilising my knowledge and today’s youth, I pursue the initiation of giving our generation a voice that can be heard.
Hello, my name is Hogan Hynes, I am 17 years old and I joined the youth council to give back to my community and give the youth a voice.
Hey guys, I’m Kieran Hastings and I have been part of the youth council for the past 5 years. I hope to see the council grow and support youth for many years to come as I have done for the time I’ve been here. My aspirations for the future are to see CHB grow, and to use the skills I have gained from Youth Council to help me on my path of a future career. I have been involved in many activites and extracurricular activities such as scouts (chief scout), rugby, volley ball, stage challenge, life saving and more.
Hello, my name is James Sciascia. I am 16 years old, a year 13 student and a house captain for Hobson at Central Hawkes Bay College. I went to Porangahau primary school. Next year I wish to, in some way, continue doing things with Epic Ministries. I hope to travel the world once I leave school and sometime in the future find something that I hope I enjoy and can do as a lifelong career pathway – which I am hoping has something to do with youth.
Also with the addition of Lydia Bucknell and Alex Koehlis who have been on the youth council going on three years now. They are both year nine students at Central Hawkes Bay College this year and have been involved with Epic Ministries for a long time – going to programmes and camps such as Rock Solid, AMP’d and Leap Camp. They are both positive, aspiring young leaders and good role models for the younger children in CHB. They bring the energy and a younger perspective to the team of youth.
