Office gear goes on sale to help cinema Cinema fundraiser: Everything that's left after the Bayleys' office move will be up for grabs at a garage sale on Saturday. All money raised will go towards bringing the Waiheke Cinema into the digital age. By GILL ALCOCK The campaign to raise $100,000 for Artworks Cinema to go digital will get a boost when Bayleys Real Estate has a garage sale clearout this Saturday afternoon. The agency is moving premises and in its wake will be a large amount of office equipment which will be up for grabs. All proceeds will go to the cinema trust. Although the move will only take the agents next door to the building under Paper Plus and the Toi Gallery, franchise owner Mary Curnow says she wants every- thing to be brand new. We started out in an office behind the wine shop then moved into what became Schooners. We moved in here back in the early 90s. When we moved we just picked up boxes and walked across the road. We ve never really had a planned office with storage. So this Friday the team will be moving into their refurbished offices. Left behind will be an expensive shelving unit specially bought to house the old computer systems. This, along with desks, office chairs, shelving units, filing cab- inets and even the fridge and kit- chen equipment will be for sale. People can enjoy a rummage from 1pm and know that all the proceeds will go towards the Wai- heke Cinema s fundraising project to go digital. Giving the money away to a local fundraising project is not new to Ms Curnow with the agents regularly making a contri- bution from their commissions to local charities like the fire brig- ade. We live here, its our com- munity and we want to support it, she says. Amnesty to target island weeds Waiheke Islanders have very high weed awareness according to the latest Weedbusters statement. Weedbusters co-ordinators Malcolm Harrison from Auckland Council and Steve Benham from the Conservation Department say it s thanks to the great community spirit and the work of former Waiheke Weedbusters co- ordinator Jenness Reeve. Another Waiheke Weed amnesty will take place later this year. The amnesty was launched last year and saw around 20 tonnes of weeds removed from gardens and disposed of at the Ostend transfer station for free. It is likely the amnesty will take place in late August. The initiative is made possible with the support of Waiheke Weedbusters and Auckland Council biosecurity team.
