Church garage sale to operate from car park The sale of Upper Hutt Baptist Church s friendship centre means organisers of its monthly garage sales are changing to car boot sales in their car park. Twenty-one years of the indoor fundraiser, which raised thou- sands of dollars for many organi- sations and local, national and international appeals, ended at Queen s Birthday Weekend. Until they can move to the extension planned for the main church building on the south cor- ner of Fergusson Dr and Milton St, organisers plan to operate from the car park. That building replaced the original church across the road, which became the friendship centre and has been bought by Arts a Go Go! The first car boot sale is planned for Saturday, July 2. Called the garage sale with the big difference , they began in 1990 on the first Saturday of every month, nine or 10 months a year. They included a free cuppa with biscuits and, for many years, cheese toast triangles. Colourful Clown Puzzle was often there to entertain and give away balloons and novelties. Many regular customers said they looked forward to the garage sales because they did not get out much. Proceeds have sponsored Ephrem, a young Ethiopian, through TEAR Fund for about nine years. The team regularly receives letters from Ephrem and members write to him, sending extra money for birthdays and Christmas gifts. During the past 21 years, thou- sands of dollars have been donated to organisations and relief funds such as the Pakistan flood relief, Christchurch earth- quake appeal, Japan earthquake and tsunami appeal and, closer to home, Drug Arm, Upper Hutt Food Bank and others. Hutt house values drop House values in Upper Hutt have fallen by 3.5 per cent to an average $337,794 for May. They fell by 2.8 per cent for April. QV s residential price index for May shows property values in the Wellington region have dropped by 3.6 per cent in the past year. Values have continued falling in recent months. The indices show nationwide values have remained flat in May. We are seeing diverse trends in the Wellington region, with Welling- ton and Porirua values holding their own while Upper Hutt and Lower Hutt property values have slipped further from last month, says Pieter Geill of QV Valuations. Overall, the month was relatively quiet with con- tinued subdued sales activity. Public sector restructuring is being well reported by the press and is likely to also have a dampening effect on con- fidence in the Wellington region . . . It also appears we are experienc- ing the traditional quiet period that happens as we approach winter, Mr Geill said. QV s residential price index is cal- culated using sales data from the three months leading up to the month being reported. It is not the same as the average sales price, which fluc- tuates in line with the mix of proper- tiesin upper or lower price brackets.
