In 2017 Queenstown Rotary contributed $5,000 to the Queenstown Community Patrol group that enabled the purchase of the original Community Patrol vehicle and enabled the group to establish here.  That original Daihatsu Terios vehicle has now been ‘traded in’ on a new 2019 model Mitsubishi Outlander pictured here displaying the Rotary logo, together with other sponsors.  Funds for the new vehicle were raised through local charitable trusts as well as the sale of the older Rotary funded vehicle.

Rotarians Bruce Jefford (chair), Stuart Maclean and Ashley Adams are members of the rostered Community Patrol team which patrols Queenstown and surrounds mostly on Friday and Saturday nights when they are most needed informing the Police.  The Queenstown Community Patrol is the ‘eyes and ears’ of the Police in contributing to keep the our community of residents, businesses and worldwide visitors safer.
