See Fringe in the ‘Stings


Hastings Leader - - News -

Wow, how time flies. I’ve just come back from a fifth birth­day party (yes there was cake) for City As­sist, our amaz­ing team in pur­ple who have made such a dif­fer­ence to our city.

Even if you don’t know who they are, you’ll have seen them walk­ing around town. They are our am­bas­sadors and our first re­spon­ders. They de-es­ca­late sit­u­a­tions be­fore they be­come prob­lems, al­ways have time for a chat, and are ev­ery­one’s aun­ties and un­cles.

It’s fair to say that a lot of work has gone into Hast­ings City over the last five years, from lots of peo­ple, and the trans­for­ma­tion has been sig­nif­i­cant. But a lot of that started with the vis­i­ble pres­ence of a team of four, wear­ing pur­ple, walk­ing the streets, there to help.

So thank you City As­sist. And if you see them out and about this week why not stop them to say happy birth­day and tell them what a great job they are do­ing for our city.

Fringe in the ‘Stings kicks off to­mor­row! So much work has been go­ing on be­hind the scenes to make this the best Fringe ever. Fringe is tak­ing a tiny step out of your com­fort zone, sup­port­ing lo­cal artists.Go out with your friends and have a re­ally great time, see­ing some­thing you wouldn’t nor­mally see.

Tick­ets are $10-$20 each. The shows are amaz­ing and the at­mos­phere is sec­ond to none. Go to www.fringeinthest­ to buy your ticket, or come down to Com­mon Room dur­ing open­ing hours. They can rec­om­mend shows and sell tick­ets. Don’t be that per­son say­ing ‘Oh, I wish I had gone.’ Be the one with all the sto­ries.
