TV aerial work

Fiona from Hillcrest

If you need any work done on your tv aerial BEWARE of Phillip Edwards of Aerial Plus! He did a TERRIBLE job for me and Ive had to get another company to come and fix it up. Apparently Im not the only person who has paid him to do such a shoddy job.

The Wallace Art Gallery Trust has appointed Claire Ashton as the new Director of the Gallery in Morrinsville.
She brings a wealth of experience to the role with over 25 years of involvement across the arts spectrum.  You may well recognise her from the column ‘Behind the Scenes’ which has appeared in the Piako Post.

Originally from Hamilton, Ms Ashton went to Wellington in the nineties for the then burgeoning film and television industry, working firstly in the art department, and then in location photography.  She has also worked for various membership and non-profit organisations in arts and culture, government, and the primary industries.

Ms Ashton lives in Te Aroha, and the exhibition ‘Geometricism’ in the Main Gallery is also by Te Aroha artists Ron Hall and Patterson Parkin.  Ms Ashton said that it was an exciting time for the arts, and it was an amazing opportunity to step into the role of Director of the Wallace Gallery in Morrinsville. She looks forward to steering the gallery ‘ship’ along familiar routes, as well as into some new and perhaps unchartered territory.

Ms Ashton has a B.A in Film and English from Waikato University and a Masters Degree from the International Institue of Modern Letters at Victoria University.

Do you support the teachers' strike?

Hi neighbours,

Do you think primary teachers and principals should be striking? Thousands of teachers have taken industrial action on Wednesday, with dozens of rallies planned around the country. They aim to gain attention for better pay, conditions and incentives to attract new teachers. Although about 30,000 people in the profession are involved in the strike, not everyone agrees with it.

So, what are your thoughts on the strike? Do you think teachers deserve better pay? Or should they have stayed around the negotiating table for longer? Are you a teacher or parent with views on the topic? Let us know in the replies!

Our front page story today features three Hamilton high schoolers who made a plea to fast food giant McDonald's to adopt a 'straw on request' policy, but the burger chain shrugged off the request. Do you think it's reasonable for staff to ask customers whether they want a straw rather than automatically dishing them out with every drink? Let us know in the poll and comments below, but please refrain from negative discussion.

The community can now make a submission regarding Waikato District Council’s Proposed Plan.

Key changes between the current Operative Plan and the Proposed Plan include:

• The adding of around 60 heritage sites and buildings, along with 16 notable trees to their respective lists. The rules have been amended to provide for ongoing maintenance and care or repair.
• A consistent residential zone and redeveloped village zone, along with three business zones. Additional residential zone areas have also been created in Tuakau, Pokeno, Te Kowhai, Taupiri, Ngaruawahia and Horotiu to allow for growth, along with an additional industrial zoned area in Huntly.
• Under the Taangata Whenua chapter, flexible provisions have been created that give more options for those with Maaori Freehold Land.

Community drop-in sessions will be held in August and September throughout the district - find out more here.
