Bell Block Library miss’s the Axe

Last night, Tuesday 16th December 2014, the New Plymouth District Council voted line-by-line on a list of 23 services that had to be axed to cap rate rises at 3 per cent for the next decade. Murray Chong who was suffering from wearing his neck-tie too tight also argued in favour of closing the Bell Block Library. In one comment he showed a total brain fade as he said Bell Block now had a Warehouse where people could buy books, or they could travel to New Plymouth and use the town library. Many things, like community funding, were deemed to be luxuries. “We can’t afford to give away money,” councillor Grant Coward said. “We are not a charity.” Next minute the New Plymouth District Councilors turned around and voted 8-5 in favor of the Lyn Lye Centre being kept as admission free. For the record the Multi- Purpose and very busy Bell Block Library will remain open in North Taranaki’s fastest growing Community.

Christmas at the Bowl needs to change

Thousands of people from throughout Taranaki and Bell Block witnessed more of an advert of what is coming to New Plymouth in 2015 than anything to do with Christmas and the festive season. In perfect weather conditions an event which had it roots as a family Christmas show has now sunk to having nothing about what the message is at Christmas, and apart from the normal Christmas Carols and a severally under weight fake Santa the real main event was an impressive fireworks display, which seemed it would never come after 3 hours 15 minutes of waiting. Every year we leave saying it must get better….but it doesn’t.

Mascot Released for U20 FIFA 2015 Football World Cup being held in NZ

With 6 games being played at Stadium Taranaki we just had to show this image of the mascot ‘Wooliam’ – representing the FIFA U-20 World Cup 2015 being held in NZ next May/June 2015. Makes you think of New Zealand straight away? It’s not a cow…it’s a Black Sheep. Native of NZ of course. They are seen in Paddocks everywhere when you are driving!! Just hope they never paid anyone 1 cent for dreaming this up. More sheep jokes coming our way from our overseas friends. Likelyhood of NZ’ers buying anything with his mascot on….0%
