MURIWAI PROJECT: Muriwai Volunteer Lifeguard Service chairman Tim Jago is delighted with progress on the $5.5 million clubrooms

Six New Zealand short films such as Two Cars, One Night and Fish'n Chip Shop feature at the Raye Freeman Arts Centre at Epsom Girls Grammar School in Gillies Ave from 5.30pm.

Entry $30 includes complimentary wine and nibbles.

It's presented by the Muriwai Volunteer Lifeguard Service and the Muriwai community with compere Bruce Hopkins and a question and answer session with film-makers afterwards.

Some of the films are produced and directed by Muriwai Beach residents.

"We have less than $230,000 left to raise to take possession of the new facilities fully completed and fully fitted out," service chairman Tim Jago says.

"We have already successfully fundraised $4.8 million. Our challenge is to raise this $230,000 before February, so right now every fundraising activity is vital."

The $5.5 million project may be ready next month, and an official opening is planned early next year - possibly with club patron Prime Minister John Key doing the honours.
