The Bethlehem Community Patrol patrols the areas of Sulphur Point, Matua, Bellevue, Brookfield, Judea, Otumoetai, Pillans Point, Bethlehem, and Te Puna. WE currently operate two person patrols in our patrol vehicle on Friday and Saturday nights and also one day patrol a week.
We are seeking mature persons of excellent character with a sound and common sense approach and who have a desire to keep our local communities safer, by being extra ‘eyes and ears’ for the Police. Full training is given and experienced patrollers and Police provide on-going guidance.
We are observers only and take no direct part in Police incidents.
You may well have seen our patrol vehicle in the area.
If you are interested in learning more about us, or can help out with four hours each month, or with some funding please contact us. Our contact details are listed under “Organisations” on Neighbourly, our website www.bcp.org.nz... or on Facebook
Sufferage in Stiches
An outstanding exhibition honouring our whakapapa, history and the power of New Zealanders brought to you by Wellington Museum and Vinnies Re Sew.
Suffrage in Stitches is a unique exhibition, providing the opportunity for 546 individuals, families and groups to hang their art in a gallery space regardless of their education, background or experience. The makers include a few leading figures from the art/recycling community however the majority of makers are ordinary people who come from diverse cultural/ethnic backgrounds, ages, generations and skills levels.
The 300 metre textile work remembers ordinary people in our history who did an extraordinary thing — signed a petition up and down the country so women could achieve the right to vote, as well as woman who’ve influenced the 546 makers.
It started as a collective exhibition and has emerged as a sharing of history, connection of people and an amazing feeling of togetherness.
The work matches the length of the original petition and consists of 546 individually designed fabric panels – the same number of pages in the original petition – and tells the stories of 546 women.
Makers have discovered a love of history and a renewed appreciation for those who went before them. They have made new friends, learnt new craft and recycling skills, and developed a deeper sense of belonging to New Zealand.
So many stories have surfaced – intrigue, poverty, hope, crime, resilience. On this website you’ll be able to explore unique stories of the women who signed the 1893 Suffrage Petition.
Exhibition open from December 2019 and runs through the to 27th of April 2020. 10am–5pm daily.
