Do you recognise these people?

Kate Green Reporter from Dominion Post

Are any of these faces familiar? A reader has given us this original photograph of a group of waitresses on the opening night, in the year 1972, of what is now Leroy's bar on the Plimmer Steps, but was then The Woolshed Restaurant. The manager at the time was Stephen Petty. We'd love to … View moreAre any of these faces familiar?

The Annual Mission Fair for the Sisters of St Peter Claver is being held on Saturday 22 February.
Here is some info about the Sisters and what this year’s fundraising will be used for.
The Missionary Sisters of St Peter Claver came to Island Bay in 1952, to seek help for the missions in Africa and other continents. They are a unique congregation in that they don’t themselves work in the mission stations, but support and help the missions by prayer and sacrifice, plus fundraising. Each year they fundraise for a specific cause and in 2020 it is:
- To build three classrooms for children now at risk in South Sudan
- To finish a primary school for orphans and marginalised children in Nigeria
- To construct a house for a poor widow in Tanzania and provide a wheelchair for her handicapped daughter.
All money raised is given straight to the needy charities via diplomatic bag. There are no administrative costs.

And being replaced by a low quality AM service...

Haven't seen anything on Neighbourly about this yet...

From: wellington.scoop.co.nz...

Just yesterday, Paul Thompson, the Chief Executive of Radio New Zealand and Willy Macalister, Music Content Director, announced that they would be changing the nature of New Zealand’s only Art Music Radio station – RNZ Concert. They propose that RNZ Concert will cease broadcasting on FM (in order to free up slots), and move to AM and streaming services. Furthermore, they propose that the broadcast be largely automated, delivered by a skeletal crew. It appears to be similar to a constantly evolving Spotify playlist. Gone will be the in-depth shows that showcase New Zealand Art Music and its practitioners.
