Piritahi Marae is calling for people to mark their diaries and get together and help out with a do-it-yourself project. Organisers are looking for volunteers to help with the three-day makeover from April 19 to 21, sponsored by Maori Television. The aim is to spruce up the whole prem- ises at the Blackpool marae, including the kitchen area, gardens and sitting areas. The project is being called Aia Piritahi Marae DIY. Piritahi means together as one','' marae spokeswoman Huhana Davis says. Our col- lective cultural centre of Wai- heke is the marae.'' Whanau both young and old are asked to wear sturdy shoes and bring along wheelbar- rows, paintbrushes or a spade because there will be a job for everyone. All the workers will be fed so the marae will also be look- ing for donations of kai. Sea- food, home baking, wild meat, fruit, vegetables and bread would all be welcome for the shared lunch on offer every day. Ms Davis says: It's our only community marae, for all peoples of the four winds. It's been giving to the whole com- munity for over 30 years and now needs some tender loving care.'' Donations are also wanted to complete the dressing of the wharenui or meeting house so it can be dressed in the tra- ditional finery which depicts the history of Maori and Pakeha on Waiheke. Ms Davis says once the dressing is finished the whole island community can truly come together as one. Anyone wishing to make food contributions can contact her and Eugene on 372 9093 or Jeanine Clarken on 372 7586. For building or other renovating equipment or donations to DIY at the marae phone Danny Shortland on 372 6693. For general inquiries phone Sally Smith on 372 2962 or Judy Davis on 372 8824.

The clocks go back one hour on April 1, when 3am becomes 2am. Daylight saving begins again on September 30.
