    Council to consult community advisors by Ann Morgan

    As a follow-up to the Dargaville Community Planning project in March, the Kaipara District Council is to further engage local people to help review suggestions for community improvements.

    We are establishing an advisory panel made up of a cross section of people in the community to help work towards positive outcomes on some of these initiatives, said community facilitator, Darlene Lang Gent.

    There were discussions on the pedestrianisation of a part of the CBD and we are investigating options available.

    We cannot extend carparks on intersections as there are certain requirements regarding safety and engineering.

    Freedom camping was raised as a concern and Council was investigating

    putting a bylaw in place within the Kaipara District. There is insufficient evidence to warrant establishing a bylaw.

    Darlene says that concerning the mobility scooter issues with footpaths and roading, a council roading engineer has been chatting with scooter users working on ways to improve concerns they have.

    Other suggestions have been to remove the concrete boats on Victoria Street. These are in place to calm traffic and ease pedestrian access. Council is going to spruce them up but they will not be removed. To place lights on the Northern Wairoa bridge, the New

    Zealand Transport Authority regulations are currently being investigated to make the process easier for a community group to lead.

    Things are progressing positively, said Darlene.

    We are looking forward to working with the community on some of the initiatives they have suggested.

    With Spring and Summer approaching, now is a good time to spring clean our town before Christmas.

    Pasifika group performs

    Recognising rugby talent

    Rural school days

    Dargaville Intermediate School Pasifika students in their traditional dress before performing for their peers, teachers and community. The group are practising for the end of year showcase which will include kapa haka, African drumming and bands. The performance was to build confidence and to see what the students have learnt thus far. They did a great job and were supported by a large number of the Tongan community, says deputy principal Terrianne Takulua.

    The Kaihu Under 15 rugby team celebrated success at their prize giving held at the Kaihu Rugby clubrooms. Pictured with their awards are Danny Apai for Most Improved Forward, Johnny Froggat for Most Improved Back, Leighton Pomare for Back of the Year, Matai Newman for Team Spirit and Ben Milich for Forward of the Year. It was a really good turnout of parents and players and run in conjunction with the Under 13s prize giving. Its been a very successful season. The boys have performed very well, said coach Bernie Fanning.

    Pouto School students Jaydee Taurua with his calf Rose, Jorjah-Lee Thompson with Alex, and champion calf award winner Halem Taurua with Shiny at the school calf/pet day. The theme for the indoor exhibits was safety and design, with Shannon Job winning first prize in the senior section and her cousin William Job winning the junior section. The pupils werent dampened too much by the wet weather and they had a great day all round with their pets, said principal Margie Ormsby.

    Dancing their way to donationsHolly Anderson and Jessika Grigg know what its like to lose a loved one to cancer and are organising a kids disco at the Kaiwaka Sports Complex from 79pm on Saturday, October 17 to raise money for the Cancer Foundation.

    The Otamatea High School students shaved their heads along with friend Cheyanne Craft earlier this year and were encouraged by the support they received from their community and peers.

    When we shaved our heads for Shave for a Cure we probably raised close to $3,000 and raised over $360 through a bake sale. We also went around classes at school and people were really willing to donate, says Holly.

    I feel a lot of people have lost someone through cancer or known someone who has had cancer and
