August 2017: Two Important Projects  Completed at Ambury Park Centre

Sitedevelopmentb2017 Sitedevelopmenta2017

For a considerable time, the centre has had two large and costly long-term project goals in view. Alongside the regular ongoing maintenance of our buildings and farm property, has sat a need to, firstly, provide improived hard standing facilities and mud-free access around the stables and barn areas.

Secondly, to fence the huge Pinetree paddock into smaller units to improve the manageability of feed and provide safe paddocking and welfare for the horses.

Due to enormity of the costs of these projects, they have been deferred year after year. Finally the projects have been able to proceed with generous donations. The Centre us indebted to the Joyce Fisher Charitable Trust for funding the hard surfacing around the barns and to the Lou and Iris Fisher Trust, the Janet Fisher Trust and the ANZ foundation for the fencing.

The fencing is completed and in use and the hard standing area around the barns is just finished. Completing both these projects is a dream come true. So, good things do come to those who wait!

Happy Volunteers

Volunteers at Ambury Park Centre in their new shirts supplied by CITY Cleaning Services Ltd. 

Ambury Park Centre was delighted to receive sponsorship from CITY Cleaning Services Ltd for new shirts for the volunteer team. 

As one of the volunteers said “It’s great to have a new  shirt – we’ve had the same uniform for some ten years, so it’s really lovely to have a fresh colour with the new Ambury Park Centre logo”.

A bright new teal colour was agreed upon by the volunteer team, and CITY Cleaning Services Ltd in conjunction with their suppliers Aimco and Creative Embroidery provided the new shirts.

Craig White, Chief Executive Officer of CITY Cleaning Services Ltd: “CITY Cleaning Services Ltd is proud to support Ambury Park Centre.  As our company employs and provides uniforms for over 700 people, providing shirts for the Centre’s volunteer team was a practical way of providing support.

Ambury Park Centre depends heavily on volunteers to assist the more than 80 people who attend the centre each week for riding therapy classes.

Providing the new volunteer shirts is a great way to thank these people for their time, and the shirts also help riders, parents, care givers, Ambury staff and students identify them as volunteers.”

 About Us

The Centre's part-time therapy rides - the Remedial and Intensive Courses - rely heavily on volunteers to work with the staff member who supervises the rides. For each horse and rider we may need up to three volunteers - one leader and one or two side-walkers. We have a core group of dedicated volunteers who devote several hours each week to this work, but we always need more. Would you like to join us?

Therapy rides operate every week-day during the school term from 9.30am to 12.00 and from 1.30 to 3.30pm. We need people who can give at least an hour of their time. Many of our volunteers have been with us for years. They say it is rewarding to see the progress made by riders and enjoyable to be walking alongside the horses with a congenial bunch of like-minded volunteers. The smile on the face of the child riding will not fail to touch your heart.

For further information please contact Lee in the office - 09 634 0763.
