Wow! A huge thankyou to everyone who has given me their support! I have been re-elected to the Kaipātiki Local Board and the Shore Action team has been given a majority on the Board and a strong mandate.
A big congratulations to my Shore Action team mates Danielle Grant, Paula Gillon and Adrian Tyler who have been re-elected! And a warm welcome to Melanie Kenrick who will be a fantastic new board member!

Unfortunately the news is bitter-sweet as our team mate and great friend Anne-Elise Smithson hasn't made it back. This has been a huge shock to us and is a great loss for our team and the Local Board :(

Also congratulations to the other three members of the Local Board - Ann Hartley and newcomers Cindy Schmidt and Andrew Shaw who we are looking forward to getting to know better :)

Sneak peek at Hilder's Park!

John Gillon from John Gillon - Kaipatiki Local Board

Sneak peek at some of the new paths, stairs, furniture and lookout at Hilder's Park & Larking's Landing Reserve, Beach Haven.
The carved panels from the old furniture that Frank Larking built have been kept to either be given back to the family or used elsewhere in the park.

Wow, doesn't this look different! Here's the latest update from the Rawene Rd Carpark project team:

"We are very pleased to let you all know that the final touches are being made to the new Rawene carpark. We are opening the carpark up for use during the Birkenhead Heritage Festival which will delay us fully completing the carpark for the duration of the festival, however we plan to finish the carpark shortly after i.e. late October.
Please be aware of traffic and pedestrians at all times – especially as everybody is getting used to the new carpark and layout.. We do expect that this area will quickly become busy, so please be considerate.
There will eventually be 124 spaces in the new carpark including 4 disabled spaces. The parking restriction timings are being finalised currently and AT will be monitoring parking times once the car park is formally open.
Here is the latest image from our webcam showing the new tarmac surface, line marking is programmed for tomorrow. Stairs from the new (lower) carpark will be eventually located in the bottom right corner of this photo."
