Update: Blind sisters excel at music after Neighbourly user donates piano

Caroline Williams Reporter from Rodney Times

Kia ora neighbours.

In 2019 I wrote about sisters Daelani and Tayla Marsters, who are both blind. The pair really improved on their piano skills after being gifted a piano from Neighbourly user Christine Collins. You can read all about that by clicking 'read more' below.

I'm thrilled to share that Tayla has since put together her own composition, and it's very impressive. You can listen here: www.youtube.com...

There must be more Neighbourly kindness and success stories out there - if so, I'd love to hear from you, email me at caroline.williams@stuff.co.nz

Consultation: Oruku Landing Conference and Multi Events Centre

The Team from Whangarei District Council

Whangārei has been offered $60m from central government to help build a conference and multi-events facility on the Hātea River waterfront.

We've put as much detail as possible, and a feedback form here:
👉 www.wdc.govt.nz...

Catering for functions, events and performances, the Oruku Conference and Multi-Events Centre would be able to host 1,000 people standing, 750 seated and 650 for banquet seating.

The entire project, including the centre, roading, wastewater and path upgrades, a boardwalk, seawall, plaza, ferry terminal and new bridge across the Hātea River could cost up to $123m.

We need to hear from you by 18 November 2021 about whether you’d like this project to go ahead or not. There’s a lot to weigh up - what do you think?
