Rose Madsen Cottage/Te Whai Community House

Kaipara District Council purchased this property in 2007 to add to community facilities available within the area of The Mangawhai Domain. The council amended the name of the property to “Rose Madsen Cottage” to honour the memory of Rose Madsen, a Mangawhai community stalwart.

This is not part of the Domain, but access is via the Domain

At present the building is leased by Te Whai Trust and is more commonly known as Te Whai Community House.

Te Whai Community Trust Mangawhai works in partnership, creating opportunities for improving safety & wellbeing & promoting independence of all the people of the wider Mangawhai community.

We offer a variety of social services with a focus those who are vulnerable, isolated and have needs that are not presently being met by the limited social services available in the Mangawhai area.
