      • Mt Victoria Residents Association
      • The Dominion Post printed an article on the sale of Crossways yesterday, which noted that the historic property had been sold. But absent from the newspaper was any discussion about the fate of Mt Victoria’s creche, which will need to vacate Crossways by the beginning of October.The Wellington City Council has been steadfastly opposed to keeping Crossways as a community centre, despite its importance to Mt Victoria.

    • Crossways Is Lost
      • 8 Aug 2008
      • Mt Victoria Residents Association
      • Despite the thousands of hours of volunteer work, a million dollars in fundraising and the efforts of a whole community, the Presbyterian Church has decided to sell Crossways to another buyer.The Church announced today that they had accepted an offer of $1.31 million from an un-named purchaser who will convert the building back into a family home. While we are consoled that Crossways is unlikely to be demolished, it’s a sad end to three decades of community heritage.The Church’s actions - and the Council’s inaction - have been roundly condemned by many commentators.

    • Thursday night at the Forum

      • Save Crossways campaign
      • Last night the community gathered at a public forum organised by the Mt Victoria Residents Association to listen to invited speakers and discuss how to proceed with saving Crossways. We also took the opportunity to thank the Councillors, council officers and the St Andrews church for all their hard work to hammer out a compromise that will allow the community the time to fund-raise. The meeting passed a resolution that a joint committee be formed between the Save Crossways group and the Residents Association, which will be tasked with gathering nominations for a Crossways community trust, and reporting back to the community within three weeks. We'll post the full text of the resolution as soon as we can, and some details on how you can nominate people to the Trust.

      • Save Crossways campaign
      • At today's Strategy & Policy Committee meeting, the Council voted to give Crossways a 12 month reprieve by providing some interim funding to St Andrews. This will allow enough time for the community to form a trust, put together a plan to re-invent Crossways for the 21st Century, and conduct some serious fund-raising.

This will allow enough time for the community to form a trust, put together a plan to re-invent Crossways for the 21st Century, and conduct some serious fund-raising. It's not the three years we asked for, but it's fair, reasonable, and - most of all - achievable. It's a fantastic outcome! Our heart-felt thanks go to St Andrews for their flexibility and genuine commitment to finding a workable compromise, and to the Council who have allowed the community the time to re-invent our community house. We'll post more information about what needs to happen next as soon as we can.
