PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Fire Brigade and Wainoni Fire Service began operating out of its new building at the corner of Anzac Drive and Wainoni Rd on Thursday. It is one of seven fire stations to be built post -earthquake as part of a $50 million project announced under the National Government. Senior station officer Shane O’Brien said the Anzac Fire Station will house the first “composite” station in the city, with both a 24/7 career crew and volunteer brigade. Following the earthquakes, a temporary fire station was built for the Wainoni Fire Service at the rear of the New Brighton Station out of shipping containers and Portacoms. •Turn to page 5 021 914 565 Rawhiti Domain sports facility goes to hearing • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A 10-YEAR plan to open a $2.2 million sports facility in New Brighton has taken a major step forward. A city council hearings panel was scheduled to meet yesterday which could give the green light for the Eastern Community Sports and Recreation Inc to lease the land it needs in Rawhiti Domain for the facility. But a stumbling block to work starting continues to be money. The group has raised $675,000 for the project. Chairman Peter Burley said yesterday he hoped the project would start early next year and would look how the shortfall could be made up. It plans to relay the current tennis and netball courts with astro-turf and a put a purposebuilt canopy over them. The canopy set to cost $1.3 million. Mr Burley said he would be “pretty stunned” if the hearing panel did anything other than support the facility. •Turn to page 6 STATIONARY GIFTS Banking, bills, letters and parcels.
