Lockdown cans sculpture garden for Women’s Refuge

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from North Shore Times

A sculpture exhibition to raise money for the Women’s Refuge has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

NZ Sculpture OnShore was set to take place at Fort Takapuna in late October, after already being delayed by a year.

But a digital exhibition and fundraising campaign is set to go ahead in its place.

NZ Sculpture OnShore Dee Paranihi said with the current lockdown and uncertainty around alert levels, the risk of continuing with the live exhibition was too great.

“Having already postponed the event by a year due to COVID-19, this is a huge disappointment for our team and sad news I’m sure, to you, too,” she said.
 
“However, all is not lost! With many of the stunning sculptures completed, or close to it, we are now focussing on bringing you the artworks via other platforms and galvanising our supporter base to raise money for Woman’s Refuge.”

More details on the digital exhibition will be released soon.

Dairy Flat resident claims water run-off from new roundabout is washing away his land

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

A Dairy Flat man claims part of his land is being washed away by water run-off from a new roundabout.

Peter Brydon, who lives on four aces of land adjacent to the roundabout at the intersection of Dairy Flat Hwy and Coatesville-Riverhead Hwy, says he has watched his land slowly erode and scar ever since Auckland Transport installed a $10m roundabout.

“We’ve been living here for 20-something years, and we haven’t had any issue until they started doing the work.”

However, Auckland Transport says it is a private property issue and the underlying issues were not caused by the project.
