One of the most effective ways of staying in touch as a community is by means of a community website to which everyone can contribute. And now we have exactly that in Tawa (and it's free)! There are more than 4700 locals on board Tawa's community network at www.neighbourly.co.nz. If you're not yet one of them, we encourage you to join!

Anywhere between 30 to 50 street gatherings - barbecues, afternoon teas or similar - have taken place in Tawa each March over the past several years in conjunction with Neighbours' Day, and a significant number have been held across February and March of this year. See "Three simple steps to running a barbecue in your street" and other information here.

The TAWA COMMUNITY CIVIC AWARDS, held every second year since 2006, were run again in 2018 by the Tawa Community Board. The awards recognise and show appreciation to groups or individuals who enhance the Tawa community and make it a better place to live.

Information about the awards is available here.

The awards ceremony took place in Tawa in June 2018. See details of nominees here.
