If you're wondering what's happening at Walker Park
, this from Margi Watson:
"The new field isn’t artificial fields or any of the new hybrid type surfaces (like at Nixon Park).
They are grass fields. But the fields get hammered by all the sport played on them and the weather. So they are putting some water irrigation and sand surface under them before they plant the new grass. There will be 2 new lights put in too – but the will be removed over summer for cricket/athletics etc. So while it looks like pretty major construction right now – everything will be back to normal once the grass grows ."
The Point Chevalier Beach Cafe (down the end near Coyle Park) will be opening soon so keep up to date with progress on their FB page
And Bruce at 58 Miller St is back on form:

The Grey Warblers Seek New Members:
We are the Selwyn Village community choir for seniors. Share the joy and fellowship of singing in a group and make new friends. Previous experience or the ability to read music is not essential. All are welcome, especially men. We sing in the Selwyn Christmas pantomime and perform several times a year with the Aotea Youth Symphony. Our varied repertoire includes old favourites, songs from the shows and spirituals. Rehearsals are in the music room on Wednesdays from 2.15 to 3.15 pm. Our musical director and pianist, Catherine Carr, is a multiple award-winning professional musician, so she charges a fee. To cover this and other expenses, we contribute a weekly koha ($5 for individuals or a couple). In cases of financial constraints, members pay what they can afford.
