PORTRAIT PAINTERS: Lou Paton, of Pegasus, and her daughter, Charlie, admire the Faces on the Fence in
Rangiora's High St.
RANGIORA SHOPPERS have
given the thumbs up to the
Faces on the Fence competition
in the town's High St.
It's marvellous,'' 66-year-old
retired engineer Bill Ward, of
His wife Irene said the pic-
tures were very good and brigh-
tened up the fences that have
become such a stark symbol of

McGowan, said the well done

An organiser of the Faces on
the Fence competition, Judith
Hoult, of Rangiora, said that
the event attracted about 50 of
the corflute posters.
Voting will close this Sunday,
August 11, and the winners will
be announced opposite Farmers
on High St on Sunday, August

Decision on each entry will be
by popular vote, with the works

secondary students and adults.
We're very, very pleased with
the number of entries, and with
the variety of subjects,'' Mrs
People have been responding
to the posters from the time we
put them up along the fence in

voting too. They've been saying
things like it's so much brighter
along the fences now.''

management was at odds with a separate report
