Just turn up. By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Busy week: New Read Write Plus co-ordinator Mel in the organisation's community lounge with a ''travelling'' book that will be given away on Wednesday. Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN Read Write Plus have a lot to cele- brate this Adult Learners' Week. They have expanded their premises and appointed a new administration co-ordinator, Mel (who did not want her last name reported because of the work she does). And next Wednesday, Novem- ber 2, in The Mall from noon till 2pm they are asking locals to help write a never ending story'' and giving away books. Literacy Aotearoa in conjunc- tion with New Zealand Post has provided each member group with 50 travelling'' books to be given away for people to read and pass on to others or leave in public places. The books are on a range of subjects and for different ages. Read Write Plus has occupied the east end of the city council- owned community house block near the Upper Hutt Health Centre for many years. The community lounge at the other end has been managed by the council and is well-used by several other groups. It is suitable for meetings of 15 to 20 people. Read Write Plus has now leased the lounge from the council, will manage it and take bookings. Under the agreement it is not allowed to increase the nominal rental, which covers electricity, to other groups without council permission. Read Write Plus will use the lounge when it is vacant. It's used so much more, that's the nice thing,'' says student-tutor co-ordinator Tricia Bound. She says they will be applying for grants to repaint the room and replace curtains and chairs. She says the council has been supportive of the project and upgraded toilets and the kitchen and resealed the broken footpaths outside that lead to the health centre. New administration co- ordinator Mel replaces Glenys Richardson who has moved to Otaki. Her background is 11 years at Telecom and a year with New Zealand Post. She has three young children and will work 18 hours a week at Read Write Plus. She hoped to become involved in working for the community and says she gets excited about coming to her new work. The tutors are lovely and I enjoy meeting the students.'' The organisation has several paid part-time staff but the more than 20 tutors are all volunteers. Help is provided free to students through national body Literacy Aotearoa which receives government funding. Students must be over-16, have left school and be a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident. People want to improve aspects of their literacy for many reasons, from grammar and spelling, to reading and writing, comprehen- sion and form filling. Mostly to help people improve what they have,'' Mrs Bound says. There is more more emphasis on writing things these days, especially because of computers. Building self-esteem is also an outcome, Mel explains. Read Write Plus 528 0286.
