The school is the third in the eastern area to win money as part of the initiative after previous winners Sunnyhills Primary School and Elim Christian Col- lege. The Great Anchor Milk Run sees Anchor giving more than $500,000 to communities. Every day from April 4, the company has been giving one win- ner and a school of their choice $2500 each. Leanne Purvis was the lucky winner who nominated Mellons Bay School because of her family s close ties with it. My two eldest children attend Mellons Bay and my youngest will be starting there next year, so we were really pleased to be able to give back to the school, she says. I ll probably save the money we have won, but buy some treats first. Mellons Bay deputy principal Paul Harder says the school is yet to make a decision about where the money will be spent. It was fantastic news and so out of the blue, he says. There are a number of projects the money could be put towards and we haven t decided which one will benefit yet but we are very excited to get planning. The Great Anchor Milk Run runs until June 26 and will wrap up with one customer and their nominated school winning $50,000 each. To enter, customers need to check the back of specially marked Anchor milk bottles for a unique code to enter online at www.anchormilkrun.co.nz or text to 311. Groups join forces for the Manukau By RHIANNON HORRELL AND JOHN BROWN The possibility of reinstating passen- ger boats on the Manukau Harbour will be looked at by a new society that brings together a number of groups to provide more weight on local issues. The Manukau Harbour Restoration Society has been created and is in the process of electing leaders. Onehunga Enhancement Society chairman Jim Jackson is helping to establish the new organisation. We now have one agency to govern the Manukau Harbour. Rather than having a fragmented approach, we have a central body. People from both Waiuku and Onehunga can bring together the community interests of the harbour. He says society members will be working with the council, iwi and others to create a good outcome for the harbour, which he says has been neglected for 60 years. The society s aims include lobbying for restoration, representing all com- munities that border or are influenced by the harbour, recognising the sensitivities and aspirations of the mana whenua, preventing pollution, reinstating passenger transport, establishing navigational aids and pro- motion of the harbour as a recreational asset. The society will also seek to estab- lish a Manukau Harbour Authority with responsibility for maintaining the harbour and its facilities. John Carr of Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development hopes the society will reach 5000 members in 12 months time. He s also been working to turn Waiuku into a tourist destination based on its cultural and historic values. Opening up Waiuku is the aspir- ation to reopen it as a port. At the moment it s full of silt and mangroves. The whole Manukau Harbour has become disused and is in a bad state. Ports of Auckland spokeswoman Catherine Etheredge says the com- pany looks forward to hearing more about the society. Dealing with one group can be efficient but we are also happy to engage with individual groups when appropriate. Ports of Auckland is com- mitted to playing a positive role in the Onehunga area and our links with the community include relationships with Te Papapa School and the annual One- hunga Community Festival. Franklin Local Board chairman Andrew Baker says holistic manage- ment of the harbour will act as a plat- form for many smaller groups. There s so many little organisations that have been working under the old local authorities. You ve got the ones in Onehunga, the ones in Waiuku, the ones in Waitakere. Now s a really good opportunity to give those groups a political organis- ation to report to, he says.
