Kiwi Christmas has a special screening for friends and family at Hollywood Cinema in Sumner this Sunday before opening nationwide on November 30. The movie tells the story of how Santa, frustrated by the materialism of Christmas, goes ‘awol’ from the North Pole and crash lands at a camp ground in New Zealand where he is adopted by a camping family. •Turn to page 6 KIWI-STYLE: Director Tony Simpson (left) and editor Scott Flyger are excited about the release of the new movie.

Heathcote Valley Community Association committee member Jackie Foulkes said the building was opened in December last year but it’s not warm enough. “The heating isn’t sufficient. There are only overhead heaters and it doesn’t warm up in the winter. It needs a timer or some heat pumps. People won’t want to hire the space out if it’s freezing cold. It’s not fit for purpose.” Mrs Foulkes said as well as poor heating, the wooden deck swells in winter when it is wet and the doors out onto the deck can’t be opened. She also said that if there are any more than two plugs being used at any one time in the kitchen, the power shorts out. “We’re really concerned that the building will soon be over a year old and at that point I don’t know if we will have any recourse. We really need to get it fit for purpose,” she said. •Turn to page 7 “As is - Where is” Property URGENTLY Required If you have a damaged property that you wish to sell ‘As is - Where is’ ...or maybe your property has been re-built?
