Milford’s quiet achievers – let’s celebrate them!

We have some key people in Milford who just ‘keep on keeping on’ – making Milford the great place it is to shop and visit. Often, these people go unnoticed, but without them, the wheels would not keep turning. So, this month I want to celebrate them and hope you will also acknowledge the valuable role that play in making things run smoothly.

Milford Centre’s Customer Service Managers, Carol and Angie, seem to be the ‘go to’ ladies that people gravitate to for any Milford queries. They are always immaculately dressed, pleasant and compassionate in dealing with customers' queries, be they to do with the mall, the main street, or even general Milford queries – right outside the scope of their role but they still handle them with professionalism. You can always be assured of being safe with security staff on deck during all opening hours.
Alison, Sharon and Weston have been mentioned before, but need to be again. This tight-knit group from Milford Rotary are the backbone of the general appearance of our streetscape in Milford, and has been for many years. You will see them on Wednesday mornings, working on projects around the town centre with love and humour. Be sure to say ‘hello’ next time you see the team; they make Milford look great!
And of course, Mike, our Milford Shops gardener, who you will see Tuesdays and Thursdays watering plants and keeping our footpaths and alleyways clean and tidy.

Westlake Girls High School joins forces with Milford Shops
We are pleased to announce that Westlake Girls High School has joined Milford Shops as an Associate Member, and we are thrilled at the opportunities it opens up for our community.
From an initial meeting earlier in the year with Dean Flyger, community relationship manager at the school, we are excited about the new relationship with one of the major pillars of Milford’s school community. Already, our chairman, Tony Sands, has attended the blessing ceremony for the new Whare Wānanga that the school is building, and we have had meetings about mutually beneficial projects we can work together on.
Check out their extremely well-done listing on our Milford Shops website and check monthly for updates from the school. We are lucky to have fantastic local schools!
