Welcome to the Multicultural Council of Rangitikei/Whanganui

We trust you will find what you need in this website: we intend to continue to evolve and adapt to meet the changing needs of newcomers and migrants, and your input is welcome.
If you need assistance and orientation while settling here – please make contact with us. If you wish to share an understanding of your own and others’ ethnic customs, language, religion, sports and culture – please join us. All are welcome regardless of age, nationality and language.
