Colette Benjamin – Selwyn Connect

Discover the Best Selwyn has to Offer

What do we do?

Selwyn Community

The Selwyn District of Canterbury is one of the fastest growing districts in New Zealand, and has attracted thousands of new residents and hundreds of new businesses. With over 85% of people now searching for local businesses online, the founder of the website, Colette Benjamin (who is a local resident of the district), realised the need for a one-stop website where the community could find what they were looking for. For the Selwyn community, the website enables them to easily find and support local businesses, services and events, find local deals, read business blog articles and search for properties for sale.
