The money raised will go towards restoring the 300m wooden jetty. Jetty art going on the block Construct art exhibition and auction, which organisers hope will garner much-needed funds for the Governors Bay Jetty Restoration Trust. The artworks vary greatly in style, size, colour and execution – but are all linked by the common motif of the jetty. Mr Harris is one of only two artists to portray the “ricketyrackety” structure from the endpoint looking back towards the land. “The structure is so interesting, how it’s held together. Now it’s unused the birds – terns, oyster catchers, shags have made it their own,” said Mr Harris, who uses a letterpress print process employing an “arcane” machine at the Ferrymead Heritage Park print shop. Artists have all worked individually on their pieces but will get to meet each other at Saturday’s auction, something Mr Harris was looking forward to. Doors at the Governors Bay Hotel open at 3pm with a free glass of bubbly for the first 100 arrivals. Feature Listing... Idea to gift Maori reserve sparks debate • By Sarla Donovan GIFTING A former Maori burial ground to local runanga is an ill-considered act of privatisation, says the Purau Residents Association. There have been ongoing discussions about returning ownership and management of Purau Maori Reserve over the past century and in December last year the local hapu Ngati Wheke asked the city council to explore the option. A city council report supporting the transfer was tabled at a Banks Peninsula Community Board meeting last week. The report gave two options, one of which would reclassify the land from recreation reserve to historic reserve. The second and preferred option was initiating a process to revoke the reserve status, enabling the city council to then consider “returning the land to Te Hapu o Ngati Wheke.” •Turn to page 5 • We will offer you the best quality brands and option of heat pump for your home/business • Providing Heat Pump solutions for over 16 years to Cantabrians • We personally guarantee all our products & installs for 5 years (providing annual maintenance has been completed) Phone us today for your free consultation & quote 41A SHAKESPEARE RD, WALTHAM PHONE 03 366 0525 “A local team for local people” 30 Esplanade, Sumner Simon Standeven 0274 304 691 Paula Standeven 027 547 2852 21 Humphreys Drive, Ferrymead | /TheStandevens Prier Manson Real Estate Limited Licensed ( REAA 2008) Call The Standevens for scheduled viewing times
