Offer of Homestay Accommodation

Would you like to stay with a local Malvern family during your visit to the March 2021 South Island Agricultural Field days?

Malvern Anglican Parish is organising bed and breakfast homestays for exhibitors and visitors to the field days. While this project is a fundraising activity for the parish, it is also an opportunity for visitors to meet local people in their homes. In past Field Days events, the exhibitors who stayed in homestays found they avoided the traffic between Christchurch and the Field Days site at Kirwee.

For details, costs and an application form you can: You can look forward to a warm welcome.
