The Waiheke icon was destroyed by fire eight years ago and has since lain derelict. The Rocky Bay Store Initiative is now trying to buy the section on which the building sits and needs about $150,000. The section is one of three offered by private treaty with the deadline of April 20. The group is hoping the ven- dor will agree to sell it just the one section or other interested parties will come forward and make an offer on the other two sections. We re taking a leap of faith, mem- ber Julienne Stretton says. Ms Stretton says any donations will be gratefully received. They will be held in the account of Me Aroha Wai- heke Foundation, a tax-deductible charitable trust dedicated to assist projects that benefit the Waiheke com- munity. All donations will be returned if the purchase is not successful. Cheques can be mailed to Jon Webb PO Box 249, Ostend, Waiheke Island, or paid into Me Aroha Waiheke Foun- dation Commercial Trust Account ASB Oneroa 12-3114-0123141-00. Contact member Jon Webb on 372 2764 or email@example.com. Alcohol warning Don t drink and drive is the message from police who are bringing extra officers to Waiheke this Easter to help with a road safety campaign. Its focus will be on alcohol, speed, seatbelts and follow- ing the new rule changes at intersections. In the past three months 17 drivers have been appre- hended for drink-driving which is 17 too many, a police spokesperson says. One of the recent apprehensions was where the driver was lucky not to be seriously injured when she hit a power pole and left residents of the Surfdale and Blackpool areas without power. Police warn as it will be a holiday weekend, the speed tolerance will be lowered to 4kmh. Indecent act Coromandel Rd residents are being warned to watch out after a second case of a man exposing himself was reported. Police have been inves- tigating the incident on March 25 at 11.45pm and have increased patrols. A similar incident was reported on February 10 in Coromandel Rd. Residents should call the police if they see a man act- ing suspiciously. If the per- son is there call 111, or the station on 372 1156. World-class acts offered Music menu: Waiheke Island International Jazz Festival director John Quigley's vision is to feature only the best newcomers and established artists like Graham Wardrop and Nathan Haines, pictured. Go to waiheke marketplace.co.nz and click on latest edition to see a tribute to the festival from the Dixieland Gypsy Band By GEORGE GARDNER THRONGS of jazz fans are set to arrive at our shores for the Waiheke Island Inter- national Jazz Festival. Festival director John Quigley took on the task of creating a new festival last year after the previous annual event had finished. His dream was to bring world-class jazz back to the island. Having made many contacts in Europe with his band the Nairobi Trio, John managed to secure the Dixieland Gipsy band to headline his first festival. They were a massive hit. It was important to differ- entiate this new, more boutique event from previous festivals, so as well as stick- ing to the formula of the day- time Jazzabout ticket and the evening concert series, he diversified with the con- cept of a Good Friday Groove. John s focus is on quality, international appeal and presenting new artists and exciting music . I ve hand-picked the best from last year and the best of the newcomers. I m thrilled to feature incredible young talent like Annah Mac along- side many established names and internationally- recognised jazz performers. As the festival grows and reflects changes in the industry, I will provide opportunities for new- comers. The fun kicks off again this year on Good Friday with the afternoon groove at Rangihoua Estate. The first three evening concerts that night will feature Nathan Haines, Paul Ubana Jones and the Jews Brothers Band. The late night Supper Club starts at 11pm. Over the weekend, jazz fans will be going between the three daytime Jazzabout venues to see up to six acts in any one day. There are more evening concerts on Saturday night and the Grande Finale concert on Sunday at The Bay will close the event. See pages 10 and 11 for more on the festival, tickets and information, and our events column on page 39.
