The men in dress uni- form had to pass inspection. Their attire was inspected and the scruffy ones were sent back. Area Commander Manukau Counties East Police, inspec- tor Wendy Spiller says that the old policing tradition of the Pay Parade has now become an annual celebration that recognises a number of high achievements. “We have an award ceremony every year celebrating not only police officers/detectives but also people in the community for acts of bravery,” she says. Now for the first time in six years, the Pay Parade is being held in Howick. The parade will start at Wel- lington Street with a large contingent of police march- ing through Fencible Drive and continue on to Moore and Picton Streets before heading back to Howick RSA, Welling- ton Street where the awards ceremony will be held. “There will be police dogs, horses and motorbikes in the parade and we hope that peo- ple from the community will be there to support us.” Inspector Spiller is sched- uled to lead the district award ceremony while inspector Dave Simpson will be the operations-in-command, co- ordinating the march. Medals and citations will be presented by Commissioner of Police Mike Bush to police personnel for long service, exceptional conduct and brav- ery—throughout the district. The ceremony will also be attended by Mayor Phil Goff and Minister for Police, Paula Bennett. ■■ The parade is on Friday, March 24 at 9.30am. ceremony: As part of reviving the traditional Pay Parade, a large contingent of Police will be on parade in Howick on March 24 at 9.30am.

The decision to extend the period for submissions is due to requests by the local community for more time. “This is an important project for Auckland and local communities in the South East of the region,” says Duncan Humphrey, project director of AMETI Eastern Busway. “It is great to see people engaged with the decision making process and we welcome the extension of the period.” This stage of the AMETI Eastern Busway project will deliver the initial phase of New Zealand’s first urban busway, allowing bus travel on congestion free lanes between Panmure and Pakuranga. The project is aimed at improving transport choices to one of the fastest growing areas in Auckland, introducing walking and cycling facilities and better connecting residents of east Auckland to the rest of the city. To make a submission, visit www.at.govt.nz/ameti People can also make submissions at Pakuranga Library/Panmure Library.
