Welcome to WEST

The WEST Community Hub and WEST Dressed are open. Our class sizes have reduced but you can now also join our classes online. Check out our online courses in the course calendar.

WEST has begun listing some upcoming courses that will be run online.  Over the next week we will be updating our website at www.west.org.nz  and on our Facebook pages – https://www.facebook.com/WESTDressed  and https://www.facebook.com/WESTWCommunityHub/  about more proposed online classes. Please check in to these websites and pages for more information about how you can join an online course when they are available.

WEST Dressed – our pre-loved plus sized (size 14+) clothing op shop is open Monday – Friday 9am – 2pm. We have a ‘one bubble at a time’ requirement but we have a table with our newest donations outside the shop for you to look through while you wait. Eftpos preferred and all items are $1. We are open for donations if you have any items to donate. Remember that 100% of procceds from WEST Dressed fund our free courses.

Te Puna Market which takes place on Saturday mornings at the Falls Restaurant Carpark is now click and collect – you can continue to purchase fresh produce, baked goods, and other items via the online portal, and pick up from Falls Carpark each Saturday Morning. https://openfoodnetwork.org.nz/te-puna-market/shop
