New LookPlayground forMaungaturoto
Trick skates and spring rockers will soon sitalongside the more traditional swings andclimbing frames in the ‘new look’ playgroundin Hurndall Street, Maungaturoto. Months ofplanning have finally paid off as work getsunderway on the redevelopment. The projectis a joint effort between Kaipara DistrictCouncil and the community with funds for thenew play equipment coming from an ASBTrust grant.Kaipara District Council Reserves Coordina-tor, Stephen Soole, “We have a large contin-gent of volunteers involved in one way or an-other – donating time, equipment or materi-als. While Council staff will oversee the pro- ject, the community have organised workingbees to do most of the preparatory work.”The redeveloped playground will be largerthan the current area as it will include an ad- joining parcel of land donated by the ownersof a neighbouring property. “The increasedsize of the area means we can have separateplay areas for young and older children aswell as picnic and seating areas.”It is hoped that the new equipment will beinstalled in late November in time for a De-cember opening.Councillor Graham Taylor, “It’s great to seethe community pulling together to achievesomething they can be proud of. Real TownMaungaturoto have been involved in this pro- ject right from the outset and have been coor-dinating the community’s involvement.”

 Dennise Brownlie
 
Will the real Dennise Brownlie please stand up!Talented actress and Otamatea Repertory Theatre’s presidentDennise plays various roles both on stage and in her every-day life. She was a stroppy old dame in OTR’s
The Geriat- rics
,
then Big Lil in
Murder in the Music Hall.
She was suchan outstanding mad chook in
Chook, Chook 
that a newaward - The Best Actress in a Comedy Award - was createdfor her at last year’s Norfolk Island Theatre Festival.
Chook 
,Chook 
 
placed third equal with ORT’s other play,
 A Dog’s Life
in the festival that attracted 12 theatre groups from New Zea-land and Australia.In her day job at The Kauri Museum where she cataloguesdonated items she dresses in a corporate outfit that features astylish merino and possum cardigan. On open days Dennisesports shabby, grubby pioneer gum digger garb. It was theoutfit she favoured when the Prime Minister opened theboarding house. Dennise loves her work at the Kauri Mu-seum as she’s fascinated by history – including her own. Her stonemason grandfather, five greats back, helped buildKerikeri’s stone store and she’s a member of the Edmondsfamily from the Bay of Islands.Dennise has been at the Kauri Museum for four years. Beforethan she had a colourful career - she gave up dental nursingafter just seven months and has been a kumara picker, acleaner, an office worker and more.She’s also an artist who was discouraged from going to Elam Art School because only hippies went there.She married Robert, a school teacher, and had two daugh-ters, Amber and Topaz.When Robert got a job at Matakohe School in 1982 they likedthe place and the people and made it home. Dennise re-turned to painting when some local women started the Hu-katere Art Group, and discovered a talent for realistic bushpaintings. “I have a feel for the bush thanks to my parentswho always used to take us to the bush and point out all thedifferent trees.” For a while she had a gallery at Matakoheand a few years ago she spent 200 hours over three monthspainting a 15m mural at The Kauri Museum. At about the time Dennise returned to art she went to an OTRperformance in Maungaturoto and thought “what a magnifi-cent place – out in the middle of nowhere”.She helped backstage in
 Aladdin.
Her first major role wasQueenie
in
Showboat 
performed at Forum North. She wasencouraged by schoolboy Hayden Tee who today has an act-ing career overseas. ORT puts on about four performances ayear - the Christmas pantomime is coming up - and holdsworkshops for youth. Dennise also directs and, as the ORTpresident, is involved in a project to renovate the theatre. Shehas a natural flair for comedy.“I’ve always been outgoing and boisterous and out there,”says Dennise who attributes some of those qualities to beinga middle child who had to fight to get noticed. “My firstteacher told me I was her little bulldozer.”“I can ad lib and give cheek,” she says. “I think people lookforward to seeing what I’m going to do next and so do myfamily.”
