Aparangi Retirement Village

Aparangi Village is a unique lifestyle retirement village in the rural township of Te Kauwhata, North Waikato, some 80 kilometers south of Auckland and 48 kilometers north of Hamilton.
Located on a picturesque 14.5 hectare location, Aparangi provides residents with an outstanding opportunity for a healthy, active lifestyle and provides a wide range of accomodation and residential care options in a rural environment, with something to suit everyone. As a registered Charitable Trust under the auspices of the Te Kauwhata Retirement Trust Board, it has been an asset to the community since its inception in 1972.
Aparangi Village and township meet in our Community Centre, Simmons Hall, for a variety of activities including housie, patchwork and quilting, mahjong, cards 500, fellowship, celebrations – the list goes on! The Te Kauwhata Bowling Club is situated adjacent to the village, and both a Fitness Centre and swimming pool are only short distances away, as well as the renowned Waikere Golf Club.
As a resident becomes less independent it is possible for them to move into the Residential Care Unit, which is at the heart of Aparangi. It is a group of 45 rooms where you have the choice of style and comfort. Residents on the whole stay ‘in their own home’ as they may progress through the care stages of rest home level and hospital level care.
Please call us to visit our wonderful village or drop into the office and we will be happy to discuss your requirements

Te Kauwhata Community Patrol

What is a community patrol?
A community patrol is a voluntary group of people giving some of their time and taking responsibility within their own community to help the Police make their community a safer environment in which to live. Any citizen who has a caring attitude to their community may offer their services.
Community patrols may have links to local Councils and organisations sharing a similar interest in community safety but it is important community patrols remain autonomous and are managed by a committee of their members. Members meet regularly for training and to discuss issues and opportunities.
Local patrols are encouraged to affiliate with Community Patrols of New Zealand. A condition of affiliation to Community Patrols of New Zealand is that the patrol has the support and confidence of the Police and has a police liaison officer allocated to work with it.
Community patrollers act as ‘eyes and ears’ for police. Patrolling their community in pairs, patrollers note anything that could be suspicious and inform police immediately of incidents requiring urgent attention. Some patrols have a very high profile in their community with a sign-written car, while others prefer to stay covert or drive their own car. Patrollers usually patrol once a month.
Applicants are vetted by the Police before becoming patrol members and must complete a period of training (usually three months) where they work with senior patrollers.
Police notify the patrol of suspicious activities and trouble spots they would like the patrol to keep an eye on, as well as informing the patrol of events occurring in the area. Each member must sign a declaration of confidentiality and agree to abide by a code of conduct before working with the patrol.
