Marlborough Express - The Saturday Express, Marlborough - - EXPRESS ROUNDUP -

The Satur­day Ex­press (PG) has two tick­ets to give away to the fan­tasy/ fairy­tale movie Mir­ror Mir­ror. To en­ter the draw, clip this item and de­liver it with your name, ad­dress and day­time tele­phone num­ber on the back of an en­ve­lope to Movie Give­away, Satur­day Ex­press, P O Box 242, Blen­heim 7240, by Wed­nes­day. Win­ners will be pub­lished in The Marl­bor­ough Ex­press on Fri­day. At first glance he­roes seems a rather pre­ten­tious ti­tle for those who help oth­ers.

Lo­cal hero Zayd Ian Blis­sett cer­tainly thinks so.

But, on re­flec­tion, it’s a great way to de­scribe those folk who qui­etly go about do­ing good in our midst.

Zayd Ian has had a fas­ci­nat­ing jour­ney – from Bri­tain to Amer­ica to Korea to New Zealand, fi­nally set­tling in Blen­heim.

He has made his mark here, us­ing his life ex­pe­ri­ences to en­rich the lives of oth­ers.

Over the com­ing weeks we’ll be bring­ing you more about the Marl­bor­ough res­i­dents named lo­cal he­roes in the Ki­wibank New Zealan­der of the Year Awards. Nat­u­rally, they’re a mod­est bunch, but their sto­ries de­serve to be told and we’re pleased to have the op­por­tu­nity to do that. Con­grat­u­la­tions to ev­ery one of them.
