750 new builds in Nelson

Pene from Stoke

Well, in this mornings news they have stated that they want to build 750 homes in Nelson. What a flippen joke. Not against new homes but w here is the infrastructure to accommodate an increase of population. They also said it might get a little more busy, or words to that affect. Now I know for sure that this tin pot town is down the tubes. We need a decent mayor in power and not one that is more concerned about image and smiling nicely at the camera. Oh Nelson is a lovely town, maybe once upon a time but give it a couple of years with this lot in power and it will be bedlam trying to get anywhere. Oh but we have a 40 mill library, well whippy. 😡

Should councils stop using glyphosate?

Katy Jones Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Environmental activists recently protested outside Nelson City Council, calling for the council to stop using the weedkiller, glyphosate, which they said harms bees. Glyphosate (contained in 90 products in New Zealand, including Roundup) is used by farmers and ecologists alike, but some scientists in New Zealand say we don't know enough its long term effects on the environment, and it should classified as hazardous. What do you think?

Mapua Movie

Reinhard from Mapua

This coming Sunday, May 16th at the Mapua Community Hall the Packhouse Cinema will show another interesting movie. The movies have now been ,moved to every third Sunday of the month.

I saw the stage play in Sydney a couple of years ago. and I was fully prepared to hate this movie. But, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It's not so easy to take a stage production and make a good movie. However you can watch this movie, tap your feet and clap along with the music. There was no one behind me so I got up and danced in my seat a couple times. It was AWESOME!!! The actors are stellar, the music is fantastic and the film completely engrossing. I had a big smile plastered across my face from beginning to end. The audience clapped twice during the movie (it was that good). Most of you know this music and will love it just like Di does. What more do I need to say?
Go see it and have some fun!

The movie starts at 6:30pm, doors open at 6:15. Bring your own chair, nibbles and drinks and enjoy a drink or a snack at the Sprig and Fern opposite the hall.
