Get ready by saving water now, because if we all take measures to use a little less water, it should see us though. Get your home ready to save water over summer. 1 Fix any leaky taps, pipes and toilets 2 Look for a water saving model if you're replacing an appliance, shower, toilet or taps.

Helen Wilkes 04-939 6058 76 Gibbons Street, Upper Hutt 2881327AG Award winners: Fraser Crescent School deputy principal Michelle Picard and Clyma Park community garden chairman Konrad Hickson with the latest award. Clyma Park project growing up a winner Clyma Park's new community gar- den has won a higher level of the Wellington Airport Regional Com- munity Awards. After winning the Upper Hutt heritage and environment category, it has now won the same category for the greater Welling- ton region. Each council area in the region chooses winners across a range of categories plus an overall winner. Then at the regional awards, held at Wellington Airport this month, winners of each category compete and this is what the Clyma Park group has won. A supreme winner is also chosen to go to the national com- petition. That was Mana Recovery which provides social and employment outcomes for people with mental health needs. Wellington Speedway Society of Upper Hutt was also a finalist for the supreme award. Volunteers at the Clyma Park project have turned an empty lawn into a thriving community garden of vegetables and planted trees. The park project followed plans, later dropped, by the city council to sell the site to raise funds for a new library. Local residents have held many community barbecues at the park and in June had an official open- ing that included the release of sky lanterns. Volunteers have fundraised and given time to develop the land, build plant beds, plant fruit and nut trees, and buy materials and composting facilities. The group works closely with neighbouring Fraser Crescent School to providing a learning experience for students. Clyma Park project chairman Konrad Hickson says a huge amount has been achieved, given that in January the park was bare grass. Future plans include a com- munity noticeboard, seating and a pergola for shade, especially for outdoor school classes. He says the project would not have been possible without help from the community, Fraser Cres- cent School and the city council. Since 1972 the Wellington Speedway Society has provided people the opportunity to race motorsport in a safe and organised environment at Te Marua. The society is run by a passion- ate team of volunteers, including administration, fundraising, track maintenance, and holding meetings. Meetings with sprint cars, saloons, super stocks, modifieds, stock cars and ministocks are held weekly between October and April and attract up to 5000 visitors.
