Specialising in: School plans second crafty girls' night out Women are invited to a crafty night out at Adventure School Hall next month. The school s second annual Women s Expo fundraiser will again showcase local craft talent on April 5. Items for sale include kids accessories, jewellery, mosaics, hand-felted garments, beauty therapy, makeup, hand-crafted soaps, artwork and handbags. Last year the evening raised $5000. This year s take will go towards school environ- mental projects such as a covered walkway from the classrooms to the school hall, shade sails and vegetable plots for each class, says organiser Leigh Roberts. Women should get a group of girls together and make a night of it for the fundraiser, she says. Attendees will receive a glass of bubbles or juice on arrival and there will be goody bags for the first 150 ladies through the door. A cafe and wine bar will be on site for the night and there will be raffles and spot prizes throughout the evening. Ms Roberts says it would be great to have more local wares on offer.

IN BRIEF Order Rotary firewood Over summer The Rotary Club of Plimmerton has had a team busy chopping wood, making a large stockpile of firewood ready for winter. It's a job better done sooner rather than later, and orders are now being taken. For customers in the area, the team aim to deliver orders within one week. Get in touch with Peter on 233 1281. Alternatively, folks are welcome to join the team and get fit too. Maori optional Maori members of the community will soon be able to change which electoral roll they want to be on. This year's Maori Electoral Option starts on March 25 and the Electoral Commission will have teams working in communities to make sure Maori have all the information they need to make their choice. People who indicated they were of Maori descent when they enrolled will be sent a personalised pack in the mail in late March. Visit: www.elections.org.nz. Fare rise set lower than first forecast A 2 per cent increase to Metlink train, bus and harbour ferry fares has been proposed by Greater Wellington Regional Council. The fare increase -- below the 3 per cent rise forecast -- will be confirmed after it has been consulted on as part of the regional council s Annual Plan process. Consultation will begin in late March. The increase will also depend on success- ful negotiations with public transport operators. The smaller fare increase was proposed largely because of increased concerns about the affordability of public transport, said council chairperson Fran Wilde. Fare increases are needed to cover rising costs, but the council is also very aware of the need to ensure public transport is affordable, she said. We re concerned that this is becoming an issue for more people so a smaller increase is appropriate. Ms Wilde said the increase is in the total fare revenue rather than an increase in each individual fare. Some fares will not increase at all, whereas most stored value card or multi- trip fares will increase by an average of about 2.5 per cent. For train users between Porirua and Wel- lington cities, fares would increase by about 2.5 percent. A 10-trip adult ticket for five zones would increase from $48.60.80 to $49.80, a monthly pass from $145.80 to $149.40. A four-zone fare from Tawa would rise by 2.5 per cent, becoming $40.80 for a 10-trip and $122.40 for a monthly ticket. Ms Wilde said the smaller overall increase would still ensure that fares made up 55-60 per cent of public transport costs.
