Poll: New ramp at council building to increase security

Maxine Jacobs Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Mōrena kiritata,

Palmerston North City Council is turning its public entrance from The Square into a staff only and disabilities entrance to increase security after the Christchurch terror attacks last year.

The council forked out $64,000 on the changes following advice from an independent security review, even though there's been no incidents of people wandering into the building from the street causing problems.

Is this a good use of money?

Calling all Manawatu Artists!

Natasha from Ashhurst - Pohangina

Did you know that you can still be involved in the Manawatu Art Expo?

All artist bays are now sold out but there is still an opportunity to display and sell your work at the Manawatu Art Expo which runs 16 - 18 July at the Palmerston North Convention Centre.

You can still apply to submit 1 - 5 pieces of work (up to 1m each piece) which will be displayed for sale on your behalf. It's a great opportunity if you don't have a large body of work to exhibit, or if you just want to dip your toe in the water in terms of showing your work.

The registration fee is $35 and then a handling fee of $6 per artwork. A commission of 30% is charged on all sold work.

Registration closes on the 31st of May.

Application for Registration: manawatuartexpo.files.wordpress.com...

The Manawatu Art Expo is an annual event run by the Feilding and District Art Society.
