A human chain with almost 150 people was formed last Friday to move books from the temporary library site at the Redcliffs Tennis Club, to the new site 160m away. Grace, 11, and Faya, 10, (above) and Ruby, 11, (right) all took part in the fun. PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN • By Annabelle Dick MCCORMACKS BAY residents appear unlikely to spend $50,000 to appeal against a kindergarten being built in their area. They spent months trying to stop Kidsfirst setting up a 248 sq m kindergarten next to the Mt Pleasant Community Centre, which they say will block their view, cause traffic issues and ground contamination. But resource consent hearing commissioner Justine Ashley has granted Kidsfirst permission to establish a kindergarten. Resident Diane Keats said an appeal to Environment Canterbury against the decision couldn’t proceed because of the cost, $50,000. “We’re not appealing it because we’d need $50,000,” she said. Mrs Keats said they feel defeated. “I’ve met a lot of residents around here and they think it’s absolutely ridiculous. But what do you do? There’s nothing we can do,” she said. The centre will sit 30m west of the former kindergarten and will run longer from 8am to 5pm. The kindergarten will also cater to 50 children, which is more than their previous site which allowed a maximum of 30. •Turn to page 10 20 Hours Free for 3 & 4 yrs old Three age specific rooms plus School prep Teaching room For full information please visit our website www.hvp.co.nz Come in for a visit and experience the difference NEW FERRYMEAD SHOP OPENING SOON! de Spa Chocolatier are pleased to WELCOME you to our new shop and factory at our old site 1013 FERRY ROAD.
