Peter Williams, Hawkes Bay Today, January 2012 NZ SECONDARY STUDENTS CHOIR IN CONCERT 123911 By MARIANNE KELLY AFTER a quarter of a century, a group of netballers is about to embark on its swansong inter- national tournament. With ages ranging from 58 to close to 80, members of the Owai- roa Golden Oldies team will next month hang up their boots after participating in the biennial Inter- national Golden Oldies Netball Festival in San Diego, California. Since attending the tournament in Brisbane, Australia, in 1988, the team has been to events in Singa- pore, Fiji twice, Rarotonga, Hono- lulu, Adelaide, Perth, Gold Coast and Queenstown. It’s the end of an era say the inaugural members who meet for coffee every week at a Howick Vil- lage cafe. And while they’re sad the net- ball days are nearly over, they say they’ll remain good friends. The relationship has developed into a friendship group, with hus- bands often joining them or going on blokes’ fshing trips. Fundraising efforts started with a cake stall and over the years they have included garage sales, sweet stalls, socials, raffes and under- 16s discos, and for a time they expanded into full-scale catering for special occasions such as wed- dings, funerals and 100th birthday celebrations. This will also be the last year they organise the Howick Pakuranga Netball Association’s summer league competition, which runs for 12 weeks from September 25. They make no bones about entering a less serious lower grade in the Golden Oldies tournament, because they say they meet people from a larger range of countries. Netballers from 10 nations will compete in this year’s festival. The tournaments have a phi- losophy of “fun, friendship and fraternity” and provide an oppor- tunity for sports people to travel to different places for an enjoy- able week with other like-minded enthusiasts. The seven-member Owai- roa team travelling to San Diego includes inaugural members Shirley Sutcliffe, Joan Williams, Chip Langford, Pat James and Heather Wheatley, along with newer members Glenice Kearns and Joan O’Meagher. Inaugural member Bernie Cutts is unable to travel this year.

Photo supplied Opposed to adult store By MARIANNE KELLY WORRIES that a residential area in Howick Village is turning into an “adult” precinct has come to the attention of the Howick Local Board, which wants to oppose an application for a new liquor licence. At its September 9 meeting, the board delegated the job of compiling a submission to the Manukau District Licensing Agency to Jim Donald, Steve Udy, Wayne Huang and Adele White. Mr Donald said 172 people had signed a petition against an application for a licence to trade at 219 Moore Street under the name Howick Thirsty Liquor. “For the past few months, the board has been talking about changes which will increase the community’s involvement in issuing liquor licences,” he said. “I oppose this licence application. We have enough liquor outlets in Howick.” Board deputy-chair Adele White is also concerned. “We’re looking at a wider problem. The centre is turning into an adult precinct. “People are fed up with this type of business in a densely populated residential area,” said Ms White. Police issued a formal warning last month to staff at the Supa Discount Superette, identifed as an “R18 premises” in the same Moore Street shopping centre, for allegedly selling illegal synthetic cannabis to customers. Concern was also expressed that the owner, Faisal Khan, planned to turn his superette into an adult shop. The Auckland Council Local Alcohol ■ Policy will be implemented next year under the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012, which received Royal assent in December. In the meantime, application decisions will continue to be made under the Sale of Liquor Act 1989 and Sale of Liquor Regulations 1990 until December 18.
