The Trusts have a number of stores and venues that they run, but Lincoln Green is the only hotel, and was thrilled to win the Hospitality Venue of the Year at The Trusts Excellence awards this year. There are just under 30 West Liquor and specialty Village Wine & Spirits stores across West Auckland, conveniently located within 3km of where most West Aucklanders live. They work hard to keep prices competitive and to offer a great range, backed up by top service and knowledgeable staff.

Several of their staff members were also nominated under the following categories: Mates Award- Te Awanui & Yolanda, A-Game (Hospitality Award) – Mya, Moesha & Tooks.

They provide modern, inviting stores and are proud that they won Best Retail Off Licence at the Hospitality New Zealand Excellence awards in 2015 and 2017.

Their new stores use energy-efficient LED lighting and offer a range of sustainably sourced paper carry bags, along with reusable chiller bags and woven bags. This means approximately two million fewer plastic bags being used in their stores each year.

Because of their unique licensing trust model, the community has more control over how many liquor stores are in the community and who can operate them.

When you shop at one of The Trusts’ award-winning stores, the profits stay in West Auckland to be given back to hundreds of community groups, schools and good causes.

The Trusts operate some of the many hospitality venues found in West Auckland,  which are all a bit different, designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of customers in different places across West Auckland. From local sports bars to gastropubs, there is something for just about everyone. They also set aside money to re-invest and improve their bars and venues each year, keeping them fresh and modern.

In the past couple of years they’ve opened new venues, closed ones which didn’t meet the community’s needs, and welcomed many non-Trusts restaurants, licensed cafes, breweries and cellar doors to West Auckland. You can choose from over 100 local venues for a drink, a meal or a night out in the West. Your Trusts also run the 4-star Quality Hotel Lincoln Green, which recently received a silver award in the Qualmark Sustainable Tourism Business Awards, and for more information on conference centres Auckland, Auckland attractions and convention centres please go to .
