MP Nandor Tanczos visits Ashburton PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 20 July 2006

Green MP Nandor Tanczos was in Ashburton on Wednesday as part of what he called The Zero Waste Heroes Tour.

Thursday, 20 July 2006

For the second time the Lotto outlet at Ashburton's New World supermarket has won a Winning Wheel ticket.

Manager Sue Heney said the lucky person had not come forward to claim their prize as of yesterday, but when they did they would find they had won a free flight to Wellington, a makeover and clothes, the chance to spin the wheel on a Lotto draw and hopefully win up to $1 million. There would also be a surprise waiting for them in-store.

News in brief from the recent Ashburton District Council Services and operations committee meeting.
Wildfire
The council has joined the Regional Wildfire Threat Analysis Programme. The programme provides a systematic method of identifying the level of threat areas face from wildfire. The regional project is co-ordinated by the Department of Conservation.

Creative Fibre Fair PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 20 July 2006
 

Ashburton Creative Fibre may have had to postpone their annual open day because of the snow, but it made little difference to the attendance or the enthusiasm that was shown when it was eventually held.

Fibres being used by some of the people taking part ranged from flax to alpaca, and included hemp and of course wool, with large amounts of wool in a variety of colours for sale. There were also a large number of other craft items on show and for sale.
