    Kia Orana, My name is Sylvia Teariki. I’ve been a resident of Kelston for over 25yrs and over the years I have seen the heart and generosity of Kelstons residents especially when people are in need. I am honoured to serve our local hub as the secretary and am blessed to work alongside Kelstonians who band together for Kelston. I volunteer with Ponsonby Kelston Rugby and am currently working at Kelston Intermediate and love it. My 3 children attend the local schools, they enjoy the outdoor spaces at Brains park and the footpath at Archibald Park has become a favourite place to walk through. If you see me around the neighbourhood dont be a stranger come and say hello. Looking forward to seeing you at the hub or at the Kelston Community events held throughout the year.
