By GILL ALCOCK Residents who want to hire a hall or join the quilters and textile art group need only to check out the latest edition of an island direc- tory to find the contact details. All the community services, societies and groups on Waiheke are listed in it. The new directory is now avail- able and will be delivered to all homes on the island by the end of this week. The directory, organised by the Waiheke Island Council of Social Services, was last printed in 2007. The new, updated version is full of useful information about all the island s groups and societies. It includes a brief rundown on what each group does, its street and postal addresses along with telephone numbers and a contact name. The directory is free of charge thanks to funding from a Lottery community grant and the Wai- heke Local Board. Extra copies can be picked up from the Citizens Advice Bureau, the Red Cross, the medical centres in Oneroa, Ostend and the Piri- tahi Hua Ora, and the community library. French club raises cash for cinema A French Club film fundraising evening at Waiheke Community Cinema on Monday raised $1574 for the cinema's Going Digital campaign. Organiser Danielle Fillion says everyone who helped throughout the evening did so voluntarily. ''Thanks to Patrick and Rose who made beautiful crepes, Dale, the kind bar manager who worked without fee, and also Dee, the Artworks cafe manager.''
