MAUNGATUROTO’S NEW ADDITION
If you have driven through town lately you haveprobably noticed the large notice board acrossfrom the St John’s Ambulance Station.This was built on behalf of the MaungaturotoBusiness Association for the community to usefor advertising up-coming events.We would like to thank Ken Finlayson for all hishard work re-building and erecting the sign andalso a big thanks to John Massey for his helpbending and welding the stands.It is good to have such a wonderful sign for all touse. Please respect it and look after it, it takes alot of effort and fund-raising to provide suchitems.If your group has something they wish to adver-tise please give me a ring on
You may have also noticed that our small noticeboard has recently been tidied up. I will endeav-our to keep this up, but a few small requests fromme: please keep ad sizes to a reasonable size, allnotices are to be dated as notes will be up for onemonth only. If there is no date on a note pleasedon’t get put out if it is removed, it just means Ihave no idea how long it’s been up and may re-move it, and please no business advertising, it’s acommunity notice board not a newspaper.On a different note it was great to see some newfaces at the last Business Association meeting,and as always more are always welcome, just giveGale a ring (4318 786) for all the info and she willbe more than happy to help you out.Till next time

You would have seen the flyersarriving in your mail boxes aboutBusabout. What a wonderful scheme this is and a greatservice for the community. It is the brainchild of Joyce Brooks with the aid of Pat Tuhy and Doug Slater.The purpose of Busabout is to enable those who choose not to drive long distances, orthose who for various reasons are no longerdriving, to enjoy visiting other areas at a very reasonable cost.This enables one to enjoy the journey stressfree and in the company of friends.The last trip on 24 February was to Whanga-rei, a previous one was to Dargaville. At present Busabout is operating once amonth, but obviously if the call is there for theservice, then Joyce and her group will look atincreasing the service.Busabout is for everyone, not just the elderly and a very personal service is guaranteed. Anexample is that one passenger had to be at Whangarei Hospital, so the bus detoured anddrop the passenger right at the door, thanks tothe thoughtfulness of the driver. I’m not sure which one, but Les Chapman and Bill Lewisare the gentlemen who drive the bus.Options for the future depending on demand,are trips to shows and the theatre.This is a much needed service in Maunga-turoto and fantastic that we now have it.Support for such a venture is paramount and we all should utilise it . You know what they say - “Use it or Lose It”Best wishes to Joyce, Pat and Doug for havingthe foresight to introduce such a much neededservice into our community.
