Who compiles the directory?
The Bishopdale Directory is compiled and published by the Bishopdale Community Trust. The trust has been working in, and with, the community in Bishopdale since 1999. For more information on the trust please see our webiste at www.bishopdalecommunity.org.nz.
Why a directory?
There is a lot of information available about what goes on in Bishopdale but it is scattered over local newspapers, websites, facebook pages, noticeboards and newletters.
The directory was created to bring all this information together in one place so that the people of Bishopdale could easily find out what was happening and available in their local community. The directory aims to provide comprehensive information on activities, groups and clubs, events, services, churches, schools, shops and businesses.
The directory gets around 200 page views per month.
