Waiheke Marketplace : September 12th 2012
www.waihekemarketplace.co.nz 6 WAIHEKE MARKETPLACE, SEPTEMBER 12, 2012 NEWS 4853453AA Advertisement NEW MANAGEMENT FOR CHINATOWN 'The Next Big Thing in Auckland Retail' It was always Bill Lemon's dream to create the largest multi-cultural market in New Zealand - and with Chinatown, situated between Botany Town Centre and Pakuranga Shopping Cen- tre, he has the perfect location to achieve it. Recently he assumed ownership of the 165- stall complex, taking over from the previous holding company. Now Bill and his manage- ment team are putting fresh energy into 'real- ising the dream'. With almost 7000 square metres of space, and 165 stalls ranging from 15 square metres to 1000 square metre tenancies, Bill wants to see the present core of mainly Chinese en- terprises and food stalls complemented by new business representing a wide variety of cultures, products and services. The vision is to create a vibrant centre featuring food, cul- ture, fashion, electronics, phones, specialist imports, footwear, homewares, travel, health, hair, beauty and wellness - a busy and bus- tling 7-day Chinatown visited by Aucklanders and visitors alike. ''Under the new management we are en- couraging people to simply come and talk to us,'' Bill says. ''Their needs may be large or small, they may want seven-day leases or prefer to discuss a Saturday-only or weekend rental deal. We're here to help, to make it hap- pen.'' Chinatown is open seven days from 10am to 6pm (Foodcourt till 9pm) at 262 Ti Rakau Drive, East Tamaki. Join the Next Big Thing in Auckland Retail.

Photo: MICHELLE CARLSON Sir Peter Leitch He happily lends his famous face and gravelly v oice to many a good cause but Sir Peter Leitch s private life is usually off-limits. He and his wife Janice made an exception for a special book which will help raise funds for the Starship Foundation. Our hospitals are very important. There s nothing worse than see- ing a sick child. It s very tragic that children get things like cancer. When I got my cancer Iwasover60andIfelt I d had a good whack at life, he says. Sir Peter is a trustee and past chairman of the Mad Butcher and Sub- urban Newspapers Com- munity Trust which is supported by the Wai- heke Marketplace. He recalls meeting a boy through Camp Qual- ity, an organisation that helps children living with the disease. Just a few months later, that boy died. That really cuts you up. The book is called For the Love of Our Kids and features images of well- known Kiwis and their children. Some of the stars involved are Lucy Lawless, Tiki Taane, Keven Mealamu, Trelise Cooper, Graeme Hart, Jay-Jay Feeney and Kerre Woodham. Tele- vision personality Jaquie Brown and her son Leo feature on the cover. Each participant has provided heartfelt mes- sages about what their children mean to them. It is designed by the pub- lishers of the MILK series -- Moments, Inspi- ration, Love, Kinship. The book will be avail- able in November and advance orders are now being taken at starship. org.nz/lovekids for $45 plus postage. If we all do a little bit, we can make a differ- ence. You must never underestimate the little donations, he says. Friends of Starship chairwoman Gretchen Hawkesby says, For the Love of Our Kids makes a stunning coffee table book or a beautiful gift. I really encourage people to buy a copy or two. It s such a good cause, supporting chil- dren from all over New Zealand who come to Starship.

Plans for the country s biggest biennial sculpture walk are well under way with a slew of new ideas set to excite visitors. Headland -- Sculpture on the Gulf 2013 runs from January 25 to February 17 and the first change people will see is a reverse in direc- tion. Visitors will be encouraged to walk along the headland above Church Bay in the opposite direc- tion to previous years. For a small charge, shuttle buses will leave every 15 minutes for the far end of the route. This lets visitors walk back down hill to the end at Matia- tia where they can make best use of a second innovation, a large pav- ilion at Matiatia. The pavilion will be a start and finish to the exhibition, providing refreshments and snacks and use- ful items like sunscreen and exhi- bition catalogues. It will also house a special taste Waiheke area with island wines, beers and artisan produce to sample and buy. The pavilion s produce hall will be open all day with breakfast, lunch and food platters created by Waiheke s MasterChef finalist Ana Schwarz in collaboration with chef Nico Fini. From Thursday to Saturday the pavilion will be open in the even- ings with entertainment by Waiheke musicians. The visual experience will be maintained with exhibition areas showing work by invited artists such as previous headland winner Virginia King along with local and emerging artists. The work will be for sale. Models and marquettes created by the 30 exhibiting artists will be on sale and the Waiheke Com- munity Art Gallery will have an area devoted to art for sale. Project manager Nicky Cairns says the pavilion will provide visit- ors with an all-day experience. It will be a visual and sensory experience with primarily Waiheke produce. We ve sourced Waiheke-based suppliers from water to beer and wines. It will be a real way for us to promote Waiheke, she says. The biennual exhibition showed its first sculptures 10 years ago. Co-founder John Gow, owner of the Connell s Bay Sculpture Park, made this year s selection with team members Sue Gardiner of the Chartwell Trust and Lara Strong- man, an independent curator from Christchurch. Judge for the awards, working independently of the selectors, is Rhana Davenport, director of New Plymouth s Govett Brewster Gallery. Headland artistic director Nansi Thompson says the exhibition is unique as all the sculptures are site specific. Artists are really excited to work in the landscape because it has a presence of its own, she says. Four of them are Waiheke people. Kazu Nakagawa and Shar- onagh Tengblad have exhibited before but it will be the first time for pop-artist Matthew Muir and Glendale Rangiheata, who moved to the island from Christchurch after the earthquakes. Ms Thompson says to celebrate the exhibition s 10th anniversary, it will be more Waiheke than ever .
