Chippenham Lodge 150th Birthday

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sat 24 Nov ’12, 3:00pm – 6:00pm


Chippenham Lodge, 51 Browns Rd, Merrivale, Christchurch


All Ages

Join us in celebrating 'Chippenham' a very special house, much loved by generations of residents and visitors.

This birthday party is also the official launch of a fund raising campaign to strengthen and restore Chippenham, for future generations. Chippenham was severely damaged by earthquakes, but has retained its essential integrity and stability. It will cost several hundred thousand more to retain this historic treasure than demolish and replace, but we believe many people will welcome this chance to help save this distinctive, attractive and very special building.

To make a donation go to www.savecanterburyheritage.com and select Chippenham Lodge as recipient- more details & options available at party.

A big thank you to donor organisations: Original Foods Ltd for the offer of a giant decorated birthday cake, to members of Leopard Coachlines Canterbury Brass for musical nod toward the Victorian era, and to Josie Prebble (former chip resident) and her jazz group. If you intend to stay longer - after the 150 candles are blown out - and the cake eaten - to enjoy socialising and the jazz music you are very welcome to BYO your own additional juices & alcoholic drinks.
