Helensville Directory 2019 needs your help!

The community phone directory has all the phone numbers you might want, from your neighbour along the road to local businesses who need your support in Helensville, Parakai, Kaukapakapa, Shelly Beach, Waitoki and the surrounding district.

Helensville Lions have produced the directory for the last 30 years, using information supplied by the Yellow Pages.

Lions use the proceeds from advertising to support community projects such as Rautawhiri Park, the Kaipara Medical Centre, school camps, the Spirit of Adventure and sporting scholarships.

Because of restructuring, Yellow Pages are unable to provide us with local names and phone numbers to create the directory and they no longer supply residences with their own copy of the Yellow Pages. This means you would need to use a computer every time you want to know a local number.

Lions want to continue to produce a Helensville Directory. We can only include your details if we have your permission.

The information will only be used for the directory.

Please help us build the Helensville Directory 2019. You can either email the Helensville Directory by clicking the below link or visit the Helensville Library and provide them with:

  • Your surname                                             
  • Initials or names                                                        Helensville Directory email
  • Address
  • Suburb
  • Phone number (optional)
  • Mobile number (optional)
  • email address (optional)

Support local businesses, contribute to community development and save time.
