Neighbourhood Support Nelson has a community BBQ trailer which is available for Neighbourhood Support groups, neighbourhoods, sports and community organisations to use.
We’re grateful to Neighbourhood Support New Zealand, Nelson City Council and Pub Charity for providing grants so we could get it built and fitted out. Sponsors such as Crombie Lockwood insurance brokers help us cover running costs.
The trailer can be towed by any vehicle with a standard towbar. It has a six-burner BBQ, 2 gas bottles, and two 68-litre chilly bins. Two sides lift up to provide shelter for the cooks from the rain or sun. There is also a fold-out table, to put food and other items on.
The trailer is available free of charge for Neighbourhood Support groups in Nelson and for $50 a day or weekend (including GST) for everyone else. Longer term hires can be arranged – phone 021 074 7401 or email us to discuss. We also charge all users a $50 bond, which is refunded when the trailer is returned clean and tidy.
