Start With A Smile

Start With A Smile The ‘Start with a Smile Show’ is a show based around the campaign of the same name currently being run in Ashburton. With so many newcomers settling in mid-Canterbury over recent years, the campaign aims to create a welcoming environment by encouraging newcomers and locals to engage with each other – starting with a simple smile. The campaign has centred around a bright blue ‘Smile Couch’, which invites residents to sit down, smile and start a conversation with a newcomer. Participating in conversation – whether it’s at the school gate, at work or waiting in line at the supermarket – is essential in creating close-knit communities. And now we’re taking the conversation to the airwaves! Hosted by John Hobbs from the Ashburton District Council and Hine Wairepo from Ashburton Youth Council, the show is a celebration of Ashburton’s changing ethnic make-up. The hosts highlight local personalities and stories from the community, showcase the culture and heritage of the area, update you about Smile Couch events, and share useful resources and information. Tune in every Monday at 9am. To find out more about the campaign - facebook.com/smileashburton/ Show Less
