The Palms Block Party success

Block Party

The Preston’s Block Party was held on Saturday 31 October, hosted by The Palms and Ngāi Tahu Property. It was a successful community event, with fun had by all.

Residents of all ages came down and showed their support throughout the day. Children enjoyed the free pony rides, bouncy castle, BBQ food and face painting we had on offer.

The Palms shopping centre visited Preston’s residents the following Monday by hand delivering gift boxes. The gift boxes contained chocolates and vouchers containing unique codes to be checked and redeemed in store. To watch what happened see below.

A big thank you to The Palms for their involvement and all the residents for participating in the community event.

The Palms big giveaway

Resident, Sue Merry went into The Palms shopping centre to enquire about a Christmas holiday, while she was at the centre she decided to see if her unique code from the gift box may have been a lucky one. To her surprise she had won the top prize, winning a trip for two to Fiji. Sue was absolutely thrilled with the prize and called her husband in tears. They had only been living in their house for four weeks and absolutely loved the block party along with the welcome pack sitting on her doorstep when she got home on Monday.

If you’re a resident and haven’t yet done so, be sure to check your unique code!  There are still some $100 Gift Cards and the years’ worth of movie tickets yet to be claimed!
