Volunteers will be given a training programme where they will be taken around the island on a hopper bus with tourist industry guides. They will get a support package from Fullers to ensure they can carry out their role effectively which will include a uniform and reward for their time. A team will be rostered for shifts every day between September 9 and October 24, with flexible hours. Invitation: Fullers acting marketing manager Delyth Morgan-Coghlan invites the Waiheke Local Board to support an initiative to train volunteers to be Waiheke Ambassadors at the wharf during the Rugby World Cup. There are only 44 big sleeps to go before the rugby event of the century takes place in New Zealand and volunteers are being sought to become tourist ambassadors at one of the main gateways to the island. Fullers acting marketing manager Delyth Morgan- Coghlan made a presentation to the Waiheke Local Board at its monthly meeting to tell members about the com- pany's ambassador pro- gramme initiative which aims to improve the tourist experience during the Rugby World Cup. She said Fullers had the resources to provide trans- port and training for the team of volunteers and requested a contribution from the board towards the uniforms. Board member Denise Roche said she was not opposed to the idea of ambassadors but was uneasy'' because the idea had come from one business -- Fullers -- rather than a group of interested business owners or a community group. I'm deeply uncomfortable.'' But chairwoman Faye Storer said if the board worked in partnership with the ferry company it would solve the problem of it just being a Fullers initiative. I think Fullers is the only one in a position to do it. I don't think there's another company that can provide the training. The island has to have ambassadors.'' Member Don McKenzie said he didn't think the board should be scared off by a sense of suspicion''. It's leadership. Good luck to them. I think industry, enthusiasm, marketing the island -- that's what we've got to do.'' The board agreed to sup- port the proposal after votes in favour from Ms Storer, Mr McKenzie and Jo Holmes. Ms Roche voted against and, as a Fullers employee, board member Jim Hannan abstained. Ms Morgan-Coghlan later said she was delighted to have the board's support in principle and would be forg- ing ahead with the initiative. We'll sort the uniforms. We just believe we'll get a far better response if we can train our own people and sup- port them in talking about the island they love, rather than relying on people who don't necessarily know Wai- heke. We want the volunteer ambassadors to enjoy the experience of being part of such an exciting event, and we want to make sure tourists and visitors get the best possible experience of Waiheke before they board the ferry and once they are on the island.'' Chance to see the Rugby World Cup at roadshow Waiheke rugby fans will get their chance to have their photo taken with the Webb Ellis Cup at the last pit stop on the cup's journey up the length of New Zealand. The RWC 2011 Roadshow kicked off in Bluff on July 4 and will have visited more than 20 towns and cities by the time it hits Auckland on July 31. The roadshow is free to enter and travels in a custom-designed truck, which opens into a 72 square metre venue. The roadshow will be at the Eastern Viaduct carpark, Viaduct Har- bour from 10am to 2pm on Sunday, July 31. Check out www.rugby worldcup.com/roadshow or www.auckland2011. com for information. Adopt a world cup team proves popular The adopt a second team initiative for the Rugby World Cup extravaganza is catching on with 17 of the 19 teams playing alongside New Zealand now adopted by a Waiheke restaurant, winery or club. Just Romania and Fiji remain without a place to call home. The initiative to support a second team came from Shop the Rock owner Sue McCann. Ms McCann has been urg- ing island businesses to get ready for the estimated 60,000 visitors to the Auck- land region over the 42 days of the Rugby World Cup. She has been organising regular meetings of accommo- dation providers, owners and managers of restaurants, vineyards, clubs, shops, care hire and tour companies, plus representatives from the ferry companies and Auck- land Tourism. Her enthusi- asm was recognised at a meeting at The Bay last Wednesday night. One speaker from Auckland said it was the biggest and best attended meeting she had spoken at regarding world cup preparations. Residents can now expect to see most of the island's eateries, bars, clubs and cafes decked out in the flags, bunt- ing and rugby strip of the participating teams. Some venues are also offering food, beverages and entertain- ment, representative of each country. Residents and tourists will be encouraged to visit all the different locations during the four-week pool stage to check out what is on offer.
