Ph 528 6424 61 Main Street Upper Hutt Steve recommends UK Hair Gifted vehicle a boon for UH rescue team Hand over: Nathan Clark, right, from Upper Hutt Community Rescue, receives the keys for the new rescue vehicle from Barry Gee. By AMY JACKMAN The Upper Hutt Community Rescue has received a generous donation in the form of a new rescue and response vehicle. The vehicle was donated to the community rescue team by the Thomas George Macarthy Trust. Even before the vehicle was officially handed over, it was used to ferry equipment for the team as they undertook the lighting of tunnels and first aid services for the Tren- tham Harriers Rimutaka Incline Run and Walk. One of the longest serving com- munity rescue members Nathan Clark received the keys from Barry Gee of TG Macarthy Trust earlier this month. The project has been 12 months in the making and the team wanted to make sure they got it right with regards to vehicle dynamics and multi-roled capability, Mr Clark said. The vehicle is primarily designed for heavy towing of the team s rescue equipment and trailers, whilst the off-road capability is a very much needed bonus to the vehicle s capa- bility. Mr Clark said one of the benefits of the new vehicle is its radio. The vehicle has a unique radio configuration that is set up so we can talk to just about anyone just about anywhere. This will be really beneficial when we work in the back blocks of Upper Hutt. Other businesses supported the community rescue in setting up the vehicle. Tait Mobile Radio in Wel- lington installed the radio, vehicle warning lights and equipment. Dzine Signs in Upper Hutt did the vehicle s sign writing and badging. The community rescue team is seeking new members. Anyone who wants to get involved can call or text the team on 021 468 427. Kindy kids get first sight of new home Colourful exterior: The new Silverstream Kindergarten. Exciting times ahead: Enjoying their preview of the new Silverstream Kindergarten are Olivia Pescini, 4, and Lachlan Galbraith, 4. Photo: NEIL MACKENZIE Silverstream Kindergarten chil- dren enjoyed a preview of their new premises on Monday, built for them by New World Silver- stream in exchange for their old 1940s building. The new Silverstream Kinder- garten at 51 Kiln St will open for the 2012 school year. New World Silverstream, in association with Foodstuffs Wellington, has built the new kindergarten -- worth more than $1 million -- beside the Foodstuffs Wellington head office. It was designed by Wellington architects Architecture HDT. The new kindergarten is on a larger site, provides twice the floor space of the current prem- ises and has a large on-site car park to ensure convenient, safe access. Construction began in the sec- ond quarter of 2011. The current kindergarten land by Silverstream shopping centre will be amalgamated into the New World supermarket premises, allowing for expansion to meet the grocery require- ments of the community. The supermarket has lodged a resource consent for develop- ment, which will be heard on December 19. Antony Russell, owner- operator of New World Silver- stream, says the Rimutaka Kindergarten Association will own the new premises and the land. This means the long-term presence of the kindergarten in the local community is assured. We are delighted to be involved in such a valuable com- munity initiative that provides a modern environment built specifically for the needs of young children and their teachers in the 21st century, Mr Russell says. We believe this is a win-win situation for the kindergarten, for New World and for the wider community. The opening up of land beside the supermarket provides us with the opportunity to better serve the community s needs. Rimutaka Kindergarten Asso- ciation manager Jane Braun welcomed the new kindergarten and the opportunity to leave the old building, built in 1944, for one in which the association and the kindergarten s teaching team helped plan the interior design. New World has worked collaboratively with us to achieve a result we are all very pleased with, she says. Now we are planning to cel- ebrate the new and farewell the old at a big celebration, with the date to be advised.
