Porirua City Council has 500 plants to go in the ground, and is hoping to attract as many volunteer planters as possible. Planting will take place from 10am to 11.30am. Volunteers should meet at 10am at the Windley Ave carpark on Bothamley Ave, halfway along the beachfront. In the case of bad weather a coun- cil representative will wait at the carpark to send volunteers home. Bubble bride stands out By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Wool spun: Whitby Rest Home and Hospital resident Mavis Rawhiti models a garment made from the many stages of wool processing, from fleece to knitting and made by residents. Bubble bride: Ngaire Holden's dress is made from bubble wrap decorated with flowers of tissue. Her Prince Charming is Shane Whaanga, manager of Harbour View Rest Home and Hospital in Porirua. The flower girl, holding her train, is Joan Thorpe. A bridal gown made from bubble wrap won the day at a rest homes wearable arts competition in Upper Hutt last week. Thirteen garments designed and made by staff and residents in seven Bupa homes around the region were modelled for the organ- isation's third competition. Ngaire Holden, as Bubble Bride, outshone the compe- tition on the arm of Pori- rua's Harbourview Rest Home and Hospital man- ager Shane Whaanga. Fellow resident Joan Thorpe was her flower girl. Residents made paper flowers for both dresses. Second placing went to Fergusson's Shirley Mer- cer, as the Thrill of Spring. Third was Laura Jones, from Stokeswood, in Stokes Valley with a snowflake-themed dress which was made from paper serviettes. Judges were the chief executive of Bupa New Zea- land, Dwayne Crombie, the general manager of Bupa Care Services New Zealand, Grainne Moss, and actor Geraldine Brophy. Participating Bupa homes were: Te Whanau and Gardenview (Levin), Winara (Waikanae), Harbourview and Whitby (Porirua), Sto- keswood (Stokes Valley) and Fergusson (Upper Hutt).
