My name is Chao Yu, I have been Auckland New Zealand for 19 years and I am so joyful living in Howick for the last 10 years. Howick is a beautiful, historic village surrounded by beaches, parks, schools and shops.

Since then I have been involved within the local community with different organisations. I am delighted to be one of Ambassadors for Howick and Districts 175th commemoration, 1847 to 2022.

Here are some updates for promoting 175 Howick Anniversary.

Community salsa dance programme

On April 4, I started to promote 175th Howick Anniversary to our members participating in a salsa dance programme. We have salsa dance programmes on every Sunday in the Uxbridge Art Centre.

2022 flu vaccine campaign for Chinese seniors

On April 9, I promoted the Howick 175 Anniversary after I organised 2022 flu vaccine campaign for Chinese seniors in east Auckland. I printed out some historical stories written by Song Lam and briefly introduced them.

Aotea Sport Badminton Cup

On May 8, we organised the Aotea Sport Badminton Cup at the Lloyd Elsmore Badminton Club. I briefly introduced Howick 175 this year after this event and I sponsored all participants 40 bottles of special beers for Howick 175 Anniversary.
