Kaiapoi netballers in TV promo
Kaiapoi netball players are about to hit the big
screen on SKY Sport. The club is set to
feature in a short promotional video in the the
lead-up to the Canterbury Tactix ANZ
Championship game this evening. SKY Sport
visited Tuesday night's training and filmed
across every grade in the club for a
promotional video advertising ANZ Netball's
grant scheme. Last year the Kaiapoi club
received a grant for training and playing
equipment, and was one of just three clubs
nationally to feature in a promotional video
advertising the 2013 grants. The
advertisement featuring Kaiapoi should
screen around 4pm during pre-match
coverage of the Tactix game, and also on the
big screen at CBS Arena.
Woodend water discolouration
Recent reports of discolouration in the
Woodend water supply have prompted the
Waimakariri District Council to flush the water
mains in the area early this week.
Subsequent testing has shown the water is
safe to drink and complies with drinking water
standards. Samples have been taken to
identify the source of the discolouration.
Some residents may still notice some
discolouration which should disappear after
running the tap for five minutes. Residents
with any further concerns or queries should
contact council waters manager Kalley
Simpson, on 03 311 8900.
The Waimakariri District Council is seeking
feedback on how the main residential areas
of the district -- the Residential 1 and 2 zones
-- should develop in the future. There will be
an information session and discussion on
Monday, May 13, from 5.30 till 7pm in the
council chambers at 215 High St, Rangiora.
Feedback on the issues and an options paper
for the Residential 1 and 2 zone review closes
at 5pm on Friday, May 17 and will contribute
to a potential District Plan change.

CHILDREN AT Woodend
Preschool and Nursery were
busy preparing for Mother s Day
when the Northern Outlook
popped in during the week.
Handmade cards awash with
glitter glue were the order of the
day for 3-year-olds Tayla
Pawson and Keira Whinray.
Other children had put their

me kisses, cuddles and
presents, Keira said.
Tayla said: She gives me a
cake and looks after me.
Some, such as Jackson

Because I just do!
Liam Dalton, 4, said his

She s a super mum because I
am a super person.
