By GILL ALCOCK The movement to have Auckland declared a City for Peace has received backing from one of the island's best known peace activists. Kara Nelson, a longtime anti- nuclear protester, accompanied Kevin McBride, spokesman for several peace groups on Waiheke, while he addressed the Waiheke Local Board at its monthly meeting. The meeting heard the international peace movement began in France in 1945, the same year atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The mayors of those cities had started the peace cities initiative to make sure nowhere else suffered the same fate. Mr McBride asked the board to sup- port Auckland Council's recommen- dation that Auckland be declared a City for Peace. He said there were now 4700 mayors for peace around the world supported by councillors and communities advocating the abolition of weapons of mass destruction. Mr McBride said the move would reinforce Auckland's 1983 declaration that it was a nuclear-free zone. The initiative had begun on Wai- heke in 1981 with the help of Ms Nel- son. The government made New Zealand nuclear-free in 1987. The Auckland peace city declar- ation reaffirms the essential principles for peace as set out by the United Nations which include social justice and human rights,'' Mr McBride told the board. His presentation was followed later in the meeting by a report from the regional development and operations committee which asked the board for its views on making Auckland a City for Peace. Board members were also asked to consider proposed activities which would use existing funding for a cer- emony to launch Auckland as a City for Peace and also for a celebration of the 25th anniversary of New Zealand's nuclear-free status which passed into law on June 8, 2012. The board voted to support the declaration. Wine centre go ahead A wine centre and hotel could be back on the cards at the property formerly known as Isola Estate. The plans have been announced fol- lowing a buyout by Richina Pacific Ltd of both Te Motu Vineyard and the property formerly known as Isola. General manager Paul Dunleavy says with the increased property size, Richina intends to complete the wine centre and hotel at the former Isola property -- an idea originally conceived by then owner George Hudson. Meanwhile, The Shed restaurant at Te Motu will reopen this week under new chef Bronwen Laight. Mr Dunleavy says while Te Motu's Waiheke Cabernet Merlot will con- tinue as the flagship wine, the new venture is launching an expanded range of wines, including a sparkling cuvee, riesling, gewu ¨ rztraminer, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and pinot noir. They will be sourced from other growers and regions that have proven excellence''. He says the strong presence of the Dunleavy family, well-known in the wine industry, will continue under his general management, with winemaker John Dunleavy managing the expanded vineyard operations and Clare Dunleavy managing the res- taurant and cellar door. The family is excited by the oppor- tunity to work with Richina to improve both the range and quality of Te Motu wines,'' Mr Dunleavy says.
