PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Ilam School art teacher Julia Hinman said every pupil at the school, from new entrants to year 6, entered at least one piece of artwork for the event, which was held on Wednesday and Thursday. The art on display were the pupils’ favourite picks from class work done this year. The pupils’ displays were “stunning”, Mrs Hinman said. “It is such a thrill to see the whole school’s work in the one room. The creativity, colour, techniques and learning that is in each piece is outstanding.” •Turn to page 7 www.carpetkingdom.co.nz Delays likely for Hornby mega centre • By Anan Zaki WORK ON a mega centre in Hornby may not now start for at least another two years. The city council revealed on Friday more consultation may be needed for the $35.7 million facility after a hearings panel recommended Denton Park not be the site. If Denton Park was given the nod, work was likely to have started this year. Greater Hornby Residents Association chairman Marc Duff said he was “surprised” that the decision was made prior to the official Denton Park decision on July 6. “From our residents association perspective, we would like to see if that two year process can be sped up in anyway, because a lot of consultation has already been done on the possible sites,” he said. Save Denton Park chairman Mark Peters said he was pleased to see the city council appearing to move on from Denton Park, but was unsure why another consultation process is needed. •Turn to page 5 9113487AC 9113487AE FILL UP FOR LESS WITH YOUR GOLD CARD. 15 • Full mechanical services • Petrol & Diesel Incorporating HALSWELL NOW OPEN IN HORNBY WOF ONLY $29 FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY *Terms and Conditions apply.
