Ecan Update

 

Welcome to the official Diamond Harbour Community Association website

You will find contacts, local businesses, tourist and community information and lots more, including our local newspaper, The Diamond Harbour Herald.

The sunny side of Lyttelton Harbour is just 40 minutes drive from Christchurch or 10 minutes by ferry.

Hall and Library Closed

Emergency Closure of Diamond Harbour Hall and Library

Water-blasting at the Diamond Harbour Hall Building has exposed and loosened asbestos which now poses a definite health threat.
Accordingly the Hall and the Library are now closed until further notice. This includes the returning of books to the library slot - do not go near either building!
The area has been cordoned off - do not go inside the cordons!
There is no word yet on how long these closures will apply, please return to this website where updated information will be posted as it becomes available.

Coming Events

Change of Venue

The Eastern will now be playing outside on the Godley House site (Hall closure is not going to stop one of our favourite bands from playing in DH!). The forecast looks good for Sunday Nov 2, but if otherwise, go looking for them in the DH Rugby Clubrooms. It should be another awesome gig so check it out.

Postponement Alert

DH Rugby Club AGM postponed to Tue Dec 9
