Sherwood Forest was recreated in Whitby in early July, complete with Robin Hood and his merry band, Maid Marian, woodland animals, archers and jousters. Hundreds of children were transported to merrie England for the first week of their school holidays thanks to a volunteer- run morning holiday programme at The Anchor Church on Joseph Banks Drive. Fifty parents, church workers, students and congregation members put hundreds of hours into the week-long holiday pro- gramme, organiser Christine Leadbeater says. She and husband Sandy wrote the scripts to a pantomime puppet play and volunteers went to huge effort to recreate a forest atmos- phere in the church hall. Thickets of trees lined the walls and organ- isers were dressed in friars garb or in Robin Hood costumes. Some parents took a week off work to help run the programme, and older kids who attended in previous years returned as leaders, Mrs Leadbeater says. The whole thing is volunteer, right from Sandy and I who write and design the whole thing to people building the set and paint- ing the backdrop to baking and cleaning the toilets, she says. The programme began six years ago and has become hugely popu- lar -- more than 200 children attended this year. That s the sixth one we ve done and it just gets bigger and better every year, Mrs Leadbeater says. Aside from watching Mrs Leadbeater take the stage as Maid Marian every day, children aged 5 to 11 got to try target shooting, jousting, sang and danced to original songs written by church youth pastor Brad de Villiers, and did crafts. The craft materials alone cost $1000, she says. Kids were charged $5 for each morning-only session, to a maxi- mum of $12 per family. We don t do it to make money, Mrs Leadbeater says. It s just something we re really passionate about and we know the kids really love it. The church is already busy organising next year s pro- gramme, a pirate-themed week with the Sheriff of Nottingham returning on the high seas. Hayden reveals high hopes for Porirua By KRIS DANDO NEW DIRECTION: New Keep Porirua Beautiful chairman Hayden Nash wants to make the organisation more relevant. A more visible Keep Porirua Beautiful (KPB) could be coming under new chairman Hayden Nash. The Porirua East resident took the reins this month. He said predecessor Jeremy Andersen deserved much cre- dit for the work he put in, but believes it is time for a new direction . KPB has always had a solid reputation of advocacy and volunteer hours keeping the city tidy and carrying out planting days, but Mr Nash says getting out in the com- munity more is his primary aim. It s about making us more relevant to people in Porirua again. Porirua City Council has cleaning up the harbour as a key part of their agenda and we want to be involved with that. I want to be talking to businesses about keeping their patches clean, because they can really affect the waterways and harbour. Mr Nash, who will be jug- gling the role with full-time work, says core activities like planting days, cleanups, maintaining the community garden at Cornwall and other beautification projects will remain. However, he is keen to increase membership and be more proactive in tackling litter and graffiti in Porirua. He would love to see more representation on the com- mittee from the north and eastern parts of the city. His job has been made more difficult recently, with the council more than halving its contribution, down to $32,000. Other avenues will be explored for funding, he says. Porirua Mayor Nick Leggett says KPB has done an admir- able job over the years, getting people engaged in making the city a tidier place. At 28, he says Mr Nash s age will hopefully encourage other young people to be involved. I m excited to hear Hayden say KPB will be aligned with [the city council s] goals of riparian planting and re- vegetation. Award success acknowledged By MATTHEW DALLAS Good as gold: Claiming their Wellington Gold Awards, Adrenaline Forest director Jean Caillabet and Mana Recovery general manager Elizabeth Coluzzi, with Porirua mayor Nick Leggett and Gold Awards director Gayle Page. Porirua winners of Wellington Gold Awards, Mana Recovery and Adrenalin Forest, were presented with their accolades by Mayor Nick Leggett last week. The regional business awards were held last month. Mana Recovery, which supports intellectually disabled workers into paid jobs and runs recycling depot Trash Palace, took out the Green Gold category, while Aotea-based high-wire adventure park Adrenalin Forest topped the Vibrant Gold section. When presenting Mana Recovery general manager Eliz- abeth Coluzzi and Adrenalin Forest director Jean Caillabet with framed certificates on July 10, Mr Leggett praised them for their business success and the positive recognition it brought to the city. Both Ms Coluzzi and Mr Cail- labet said the awards capped off an amazing year for their ventures and they were very proud to be based in Porirua. Ms Coluzzi said she recently recorded a radio promotion for the Wellington Airport com- munity awards, at which the business won a category in 2012, and the script referred to Mana Recovery, Wellington . I told them I m not going to say that -- it s Mana Recovery, Porirua .
