You often hear the siren going and you of-ten wonder vaguely what service has beencalled out, where are they going?To answer all your questions there will be anInformation Day held at the St. John Am-bulance Station on Saturday March 11.This wonderful organisation, run mainly byvolunteers are looking for more volunteers.(See full story on pages 4 and 5).They are such a dedicated band of peoplethat we as a small community township,could not be without and we owe them a lot.As of course we do with our other brilliantvolunteer service - the Fire Service.We have many talented individuals in oursmall town and the children are no excep-tion. Recently they held two performancesat the theatre. Although I was unable toattend, I have heard that they were superb.The children were a delight with a lot oftalent - future Hollywood stars in the mak-ing?. Many of the children had never beenon stage before, but carried their perform-ance through beautifully.They played to a full house, with standingroom only for the evening performance.A wonderful time was had by all, and theparents were asking “when will they do an-other one?”.So congratulations to Maura and PeterFlower, who did an excellent job.We all look forward to the next production.Don’t forget the Rotary Auction on Satur-day 11 March — bargains for all no doubt!Until next month

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
4318 599.
 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.
