Library should stay
Like other writers I think that the new museum and council should be built away from the risk of tsunami and the library stay where it is.
The bottom of Churchill Park is the best site.
The present library building was designed to blend in to the cliff behind, which it does well. It is attractive looking, near new in appearance, built to last, of permanent materials worth many hundreds of thousands of dollars yet the Kaikoura District Council plans to bulldoze this viable asset to the community which it probably got for nothing.
One gets the impression of furtiveness and secrecy by the council about this project so far, which is not surprising in view of the above facts.
Putting it right
I would like to ensure a correction is noted relating to my employment as nurse manager and midwife, as stated in the 100th Anniversary Celebration supplement in the Kaikoura Star on May 30.
My time of employment as nurse manager/midwife was in fact from September 2002 until April 2008, a period of more than five years, not from 2006 until 2009, as printed.
What a community
What a generous and talented community we live in!
This was most evident on the recent Trash Fashion weekend when the community spirit came to the fore. Two sell-out shows were enjoyed by enthusiastic, appreciative audiences. It is thanks to the amazing talent, imagination and skills of the designers and their models who enter our show, and all the generous sponsors who enable us to provide such generous prizes, that we are able to produce such a colourful and entertaining show.
Congratulations to all who entered. Many thanks to everyone – designers, models, sponsors, entertainers, audience and all who helped in many ways to create this wonderful show.
The members of the Lions Club of Seaward Kaikoura thank the Kaikoura community, as with your help, we are now able to contribute $15,540 towards the purchase of the CR reader for the Kaikoura Hospital.
