Brian Gentil caught up with Brent Willoughby from The Waihi footie club. They are disappointed about the damage done to their field since the netball building was moved to Morgan Park. During the move part of the soccer field was damaged. It was hoped the Hauraki District Council would have the pitch fixed prior to their game last weekend but the council has said it won't be this week either. A few locals, along with Hauraki District Councillor Max McLean got out with a roller and tried to smooth the field out but it's looking like a bigger job.

April 19, 2018 03:08 PM PDT
OceanaGold Senior Community Advisor Kit Wilson called in to Gold FM for a chat about local operations.
Kit is guiding a walk in the Echo Walking Festival this weekend (sorry - it's fully booked) and has a lot to do with the Khaki Miners display at the Education Centre on Morseby Avenue.
An Anzac Day event is happening at the Tunnellers Memorial, Gilmour Reserve next Wednesday, which is a little different as it not only commemorates the men who left New Zealand to fight overseas but also remembers the animals who served in wars. People are welcome to bring their animals Kit said. It's also an opportunity for people to stand in a circle and talk about a loved one who served. He explained more details.
A Project Martha newsletter is being developed to update residents surrounding the proposed new project.
The Mines Rescue Team is taking part in the Sky Tower Challenge soon. It's about a month away but the team is getting in some serious training. The equipment they wear is different and heavier than the usual kit firefighters wear and will be a serious challenge.

April 16, 2018 10:11 PM PDT
The Labour Government has opened their purse to the tune of $3.4 million in funding to help improve and extend the Hauraki Rail Trail.
And the good news continues with the NZ Transport Agency providing funding for LED lights across the Hauraki district. Over the next few months most street lights will be converted to new state-of-the-art LED lights. Exceptions include State Highways, which are maintained by NZ Transport Agency, and some higher use local roads which require specialised light types and design. Mayor Tregidga said it will happen very quickly over the next few months and the big advantage is the saving in power and the length of time they last.
The Hauraki District Long Term Plan submission period ends on Monday, April 30th. Brian Gentil asked the Mayor how the meetings to talk with ratepayers have been going.

There was a large police presence in town overnight including the police armed offenders squad due to a male offender who had repeatedly discharged a firearm at a Kaihere property. The incident allegedly started out as a neighbour dispute however escalated into violence. The male offender also extensively damaged the neighbour's vehicle then fled from the scene. It was believed that he was passing through Waihi and police established cordons to intercept him. The male was not located, however he handed himself into Tauranga Police Station the following morning. He is facing multiple charges.
