Funding boost for Riccarton House

Riccarton House

Thanks to a little help from the community, a special part of Christchurch’s heritage will be preserved for current and future generations to enjoy.

The Riccarton Bush Trust received a funding boost from the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton and Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board to develop a plan to improve the management of maintenance and repair on the historic Riccarton House.

Manager Shona Willis says the Trust applied for discretionary funding from their local community boards to commission a condition report and cyclical management plan for Riccarton House.

“This report will enable us to improve the way we manage maintenance and repair on the House so that she will still be here in another 120 years,” she says.

“Riccarton House & Bush/ Pūtaringamotu is such a special place. The contribution, and support, from the community boards, helps the Trust to protect and conserve it so that future generations will understand the story and enjoy the beauty and grandeur.”

The Trust has also used community board funding to purchase a defibrillator for community use and audio-visual equipment to provide displays and educational resources for visitors.

Built in three stages from1856, Riccarton House(external link) re-opened to the public in 2014, following extensive earthquake repairs.  

Situated behind the homestead, Riccarton Bush boasts extensive native bush forest featuring Kahikatea trees, some up to 600 years old, and is home to thriving populations of native birds, wētā and geckos.

Community boards administer various funds to support the local community, with assistance available for community groups, sports teams and individual projects.
