Blueskin Bay radio news for Friday July 17

A proposal to install a new fibre optic telecommunications cable across the Waitati Inlet is being investigated by a division of Telecom New Zealand. This will replace the three copper cables buried across the inlet which currently provide Warrington residents with their phone and internet connections. One of the three cables was laid more than 50 years ago and all three are nearing the end of their useful life. A route across the inlet is deemed the most feasible of the available alternatives. Full details can be found on the Blueskin website.

A workshop to develop poems for Blueskin Poets 2009 is being conducted on Wednesday at the Blueskin library in Waitati. To be held between 7 and 8pm, the workshop allows participants to share their favourite poems in a non-judgmental and fun atmosphere. Refreshments will be provided.

The Waitati Toy Library is open tomorrow morning from 10.30 for an hour. Come along and return those toys your children have become bored with over the holidays and replace them with new and exciting ones.

Tuesday night’s movie at the Waitati Film Society is Her Third. A box office success, this East German movie depicts female liberation in the 1970s when women were just beginning to take control of their lives. Movies are shown at Bill’s Place, on Orokonui Road from 8pm.
