38 WAIHEKE MARKETPLACE, JANUARY 5, 2011 EVENTS No booking required. Takeaway available. 11 Belgium St, Ostend Ph 372 3722 AUTHENTIC JAPANESE OPEN HOURS LUNCH: Wed to Fri 12pm - 2pm DINNER: WedtoSat5pm-8pm LINEN HIRE NEW BUSINESS "SPARKLES" WITH LINEN HIRE Plenty of guests this summer and no water to wash the sheets and towels? A solution is now available at Sparkle Clothes Care in Ostend which has added linen hire to its regular range of services -- dry- cleaning, alterations, repairs, laundry and ironing. Islanders can hire top quality standard or premium range linen from the premises, picking up and dropping off at the store on Belgium Street. Sparkle owner Janet Meredith says the response has been unanimously favourable. "Linen Hire makes sense and I wonder why I did not start earlier," she says. Janet has been in business for the last 12 years, beginning with Sparkle Clothes Care in Ostend and extending seven years ago to Sparkle Management Services, offering "ONE CALL, ARRANGE ALL". is service covers a wide range of services from property management and maintenance, domestic, builders and spring cleaning to catering, car valet, security babysitting... you name it. "Apart from saving our precious water, the time it takes to prepare linen for guests, the stain removal, the washing, drying, then the ironing all adds up. To hire it takes all that hassle away and is definitely cost effective," says Janet. Sparkle owner Janet Meredith started her linen hire business this month.

The Red Shed Arts Collective is celebrating its grassroots with a new exhibition titled 100% Pure Waiheke, opening this Saturday, January 8, at 2pm. The exhibition celebrates the arts collective s 10-year anniversary and brings together a wide range of local artists and craftspeople in a bumper show in all three exhibition spaces. Paintings by Gwen Rutter, Barry Holland, Jennifer Fountain and Matthew Muir will celebrate the Waiheke landscape. A number of craft artists from the Christmas bazaar will have their brooches, bags, aprons and knitting on display alongside jewellery by Rosie Rose. The Red Shed was set up in 2001 as a charitable trust that aims to support emerg- ing artists in our com- munity . It is based in an old red farm shed dating back to around 1920, next to the Palm Beach hall in Palm Beach. The Red Shed has had many lives -- as a bus shed, the home of Bub Smith and the studio of Willow Flare. It has been lovingly restored with a new roof and relined gallery spaces. The current gallery com- mittee is aiming to have its doors open from Wednesday to Sunday during January. The Red Shed is also run- ning a school holiday pro- gramme from Monday to Thursday from 10am to noon from January 10 to 30.
