FROM THE EDITOR
It’s not often that you hear the council has money to spend in an area, but nothing to spend it on.
Residents in Waitangirua, Cannons Creek and Elsdon have $38,000 to spend on a project for the benefit of the community. Let’s get this money spent. Maybe the Cannons Creek Community Pantry could be expanded or a second community garden and orchard created.
Perhaps mountainbike tracks could be created in Elsdon?
Or a mural could be painted on the side of Cannons Creek pool and the outdoor area extended?
Whatever the project this money needs to be spent and someone needs to step up and ensure that it is.
Meanwhile the council nominations are in and what a turn around in the race for the top job.
Last week there was only one candidate - this week there are six.
Our next step is to make sure that when it comes time to vote more of us have our say.
