At Repco Highland Park and Botany RPC0114 Mayor to open walkway Mayor Len Brown will officially open Wades Walkway at Whitford s Turanga Reserve tomorrow. At this stage the walkway connects Wades Rd to the Whitford village via coastal reserve but as land to the north of Wades Rd becomes available through the subdivisions process and coastal reserve is acquired the walkway will continue along the shore- line towards Howick. The former Manukau City Council s legacy parks strategy Making Con- nections aimed to provide a continuous coastal connection from Musick Pt to Maraetai Beach. The council with volunteer support from the Whitford Estuaries Conser- vation Society and local schools has planted a wide range of native plants along Turanga Creek and other streams in the area to encourage the growth of native birds and fish. The walkway project cost about $200,000. A number of people have been invited to the opening including Franklin Local Board members and Auckland councillors. Other attendees include the Wade family and residents along the walkway, Ngai Tai Te Waka Totara Umupuia Trust and Whitford Residents and Ratepayers Association.

Battle cancelled The planned Battle of the Bridge game between former Auckland and North Harbour greats has been cancelled. Organiser Geoff Alley says he couldn't put together an Auckland side, largely because key players were injured or unavailable. Buck Shelford was to lead the Harbour side while Gary Whetton was to have led Auckland. Both are former All Black captains. Proceeds from the game were to have gone to the Christchurch earthquake appeal.

The excitement is not likely to wear off with it screening regularly on national tele- vision. Whitford brothers Jordan and Troy Darrow and Howick s Dan Chong make up the rock band that has been working at making a name for itself over the past four years. Band members write their own music -- they find their inspiration in everyday life. The video shows the band performing the song I Will Not Fall written about the death of fellow Kings College student James Webster last year. It s a song about getting strength out of pain and carrying on, Jordan says. He says while many students were finding their own ways to deal with the death of James and two other students the trio found music was therapeutic. A lyric which is a direct ref- erence to James is: Don t worry Webby, it s just me, everything s all right, you can rest in peace. We recorded the song pro- fessionally and thought: If we want to do this right we should go all the way with it, Jordan says. They got the video reviewed for release on television. Our headmaster showed it in assembly in front of the entire school, he says. They felt a sense of accom- plishment from seeing the fin- ished product. The students say the transi- tion to rock star requires a lot of focus, he says. The band members all aim to take their talent as far as they can, helped by a strong bond and good working relationship. The video is playing on C4 s Homegrown programme at 10pm on Sunday and Wednes- day and might be on Juice TV.
