The figure of 15,064 was, unfor- tunately, the lowest for the month since the facility opened, a report from the city community services director Andrea Cur- tis says. The reduction in the number of pool users could continue because of the finan- cial downturn, she says. Low attendance does seem to be a common theme for aquatic facilities around the country. Our programme attendance is still doing well for this time of year but cas- ual attendance is down, she says. We will continue to promote the facility as we have been doing and identify other ways of making it the choice for leisure users. The downturn in patronage does highlight the need for further invest- ment in a new attrac- tion for the swim- ming complex in order to get the facility top of mind once again around the region , Ms Cur- tis says. A proposal will be put to the long-term community plan for a major extension of the existing Dark- ness Falls slide attraction. This would mean raising the height of theslidebyupto8 metres and increas- ing the length by up to 20 metres. When the slide was originally de- signed the proposal was to go higher by lifting the roof but unfortunately this was taken out due to budget constraints, Ms Curtis says. Feedback from H2OXtream s target market is that the slide extension would definitely create enough excitement to enable it to be promoted as the number one aquatic facility. H2OXtream will be closed for three weeks from the beginning of August as it receives a three- year maintenance overhaul. This will cost more than $1 million and include new lighting and a roof replace- ment. Garden opening A community garden will be officially opened on Friday at the Clyma St park once proposed for sale by Upper Hutt City Council. Mayor Wayne Guppy will officially open the Clyma Park community garden in a ceremony at 4.30pm, which will be followed by the planting of fruit trees for an orchard, a gar- den walk and the light- ing of sky lanterns. If windy the cere- mony will be moved to Fraser Crescent School. The lantern release will be held at 5pm the fol- lowing day. Kittens need good homes Latest arrivals: Nursed back to health by volunteers at Upper Hutt Animal Rescue, these female kittens were dumped starving and riddled with fleas and worms. Unfortunately their condition is not an uncommon sight for the volunteers at The Haven. Photo: TRACEY FINLAY Upper Hutt s Animal Rescue has been inundated with an unexpected influx of homeless kittens. Committee member and volunteer co-ordinator Judy Sheridan says the kitten season is October to January but recent weeks have seen an upsurge. The group has many kittens ready for adoption, all vaccinated and desexed. They will be holding an adoption day on July 16 from 10am till 4pm in The Mall. The group will also held a street appeal this Saturday outside The Warehouse, Pak n Save and Maidstone Countdown. Pet food can be donated to them at any time through a bin at Pak n Save. Collectors will be getting some help from dog lovers, including the owners of retired greyhounds, more used to chasing rabbits than fundraising for the real thing, lost bunnies that the group s haven takes in. The haven, in King Charles Dr, opposite Rimutaka Fire Station, is open to the public from 10am till 2pm Mondays to Fridays and 10am till midday on Saturdays and Sundays. The group also needs more volunteers. Inquiries to Mrs Sheridan: 527 7975.
