Beca is once again proud to show their support to the Christchurch City Council, sponsoring Beca Heritage Week which celebrates the rich heritage of Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.
This year’s event runs from 13 – 23 October 2017 with a theme of Plains, Port Hills and Peninsula – Finding our Way; providing a fantastic opportunity for the local community to discover their city's history and celebrate what makes it unique.
Craig Price, Beca South Island Regional Manager, says “Beca Heritage Week provides the opportunity for us to reflect, remember and celebrate the milestones, the achievements, the innovations and the sacrifices by those before us that have been woven into the fabric of this unique city.”
“This is our 10th anniversary supporting Beca Heritage Week. We’re committed to creating a vibrant future for Christchurch, which we’re demonstrating through our work with clients to rebuild the city. Our people and our clients were heavily impacted by the earthquakes, and we’ve put our hearts and souls into getting Christchurch back on its feet.”
One of the key events of the week is the City of Cycles family fun day, taking place on 15 October from 10am at the Arts Centre, celebrating 200 years since the invention of the bicycle. The Arts Centre and Worcester Boulevard will come to life with food vendors, vintage markets, music, films and story-time sessions for children.
Beca has a stand at the fun day enabling people to explore their local cycleway routes, talk to the Beca team and go in the draw to win a $200 voucher courtesy of Hub Cycles.
