Mentor Kathy Ogletree is front left. Owners of dirty vehicles should head to the Countdown car park on Easter Saturday where members of Kaleidoscope Performing Arts will be offering a retro car wash''. The students have been working hard to raise funds for a once-in-a- lifetime trip to New York with their mentor Kathy Ogletree. This is phase two of the fundraising drive. From 10am there will be a cake stall, pick-your-victim sponge throwing compe- tition and a rollerskating car wash set to clean and entertain. Workshop buzz: Beekeeper Marcia Meehan will share her knowledge at a one-off day at the Awaawaroa eco-village. Sweet workshop for beekeepers For those with the sweet dream of harvesting their own honey, beekeeper Marcia Meehan will return to Waiheke for a one-off refresher beekeeping work- shop later this month. Ms Meehan is welcoming new and former students to attend the workshop at the eco-village in Awaawaroa Valley from 10am to 3pm on April 15. Come and learn how to care for these incredibly important insects as nat- urally and kindly as we can.'' She will be teaching the top- bar hive method of keeping bees, but is quick to point out it's not the only way. It is how you care for these precious insects that counts. A top-bar hive is a more natural and easier-on- the-back way to house your bees, but I will also talk about other types of beehives including the haengekorb or hanging basket and the warre hive.'' Ms Meehan says for students who attended her workshop last year, this workshop will be a good way to go over the basics and learn what to do for the next year. For course details and registration email marcia. firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07 856 6468 for more information. Playwrights festival premieres The first Waiheke play- wrights' festival takes place this Friday and Saturday at 7pm at Artworks Theatre.

Five plays written on the island have been chosen to be part of the festival. Each show will consist of 20-minute rehearsed read- ings of all five plays, with an interval. There will be the opportunity for discussion at the end of each evening. Tickets cost $15, email ArtworksTheatre@gmail.com or phone 372 2941.
