Blueskin Bay radio news for Friday August 28

Puketapu Radio presents Blueskin Bay local news in association with

Petty vandalism has been reported at the Blueskin Bay Library recently. Branches have been pushed through the book return slot, posters burned and network cabling damaged. If you notice any untoward behaviour near the library and the hall, the Port Chalmers police would like to hear about it.

Waitati’s edible garden group, the WEGgies, meet on Monday night. On the agenda will be plans for allotments, the community garden, garden tours and more. All WEggies are invited to 5 Foyle St, Waitati, at 7.30pm.

Tuesday night’s Waitati Film Society offering is the 1944 American classic, Gaslight. Ingrid Bergman is a wealthy English socialite whose husband attempts to destabilize her mind, aided and abetted by a

petulant, hard-bitten parlour maid. Movies are shown at Bill’s Place, Orokonui Rd at 8pm.

It’s time to start thinking about entries for the Blueskin Garden Club Spring Flower Show later this month. Competitions include flowers, baking and handicrafts, with categories for adults and children. All the details are in the September issue of Blueskin News which will be out early next week.

And, for the actively inclined, don’t forget salsa dance classes on Thursday nights: children at 5.30pm, and adults at 7pm to 8pm. On Tuesdays there are Qi-Gong classes at 6.30pm. Both are held at the Waitati Hall.
