Mr Barclay (above) has been president of the club for 15 years and has been a key part of the fundraising. Money has often been the biggest obstacle but now, time is his worst enemy. Mr Barclay, 59, was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour last September and was only given 12 to 18 months to live. “It’s a vision I had 30-odd years ago, I thought, we’ve got Old Mitre 10 site plans Doug Spence buys building in Bishopdale Club legend’s dying wish two fields, why have we only got two changing rooms?” he said.

Business park management says it wants to be consulted on decisions made on car parking made in the area. Last month, Western News reported that Mayor Lianne Dalziel wrote to the IRD over its staff parking on residential streets in Russley. The IRD is a tenant at the business park. Ms Dalziel asked the IRD to explain what it was doing to ensure its staff were not contributing to the parking problem in the area and whether it had paid parking fines for staff. The IRD denied it paid for staff parking fines and said it encouraged staff to use alternative transport and reminded staff of their “obligations with respect to parking.” •Turn to page 3 8047287AA $ 40 T Y R E S New Tyres -Batteries Quality Secondhand Tyres Discounts on sets of tyres LOOK Used tyres from LTD FREE PICK UP &DELIVERY (in local area) Ph 348 0626 99 Main South Rd (cnr Watts Rd), Sockburn 8214716AA All at verycompetitive prices AA Discounts LOOK New tyres from $ 70 155 5 x 13 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
