Big plans to
a spruce up
By MARY WITSEY
A group of Central Southland
women have already raised more
than $10,000 in their mission to
renovate their local maternity
The group has already bought new
curtains and blinds for the post-
natal lounge at Winton Maternity
but have their focus set on a much
bigger goal. That includes refurbi-
shing the birthing rooms, provid-
ing each room with an en suite and
placing a birthing pool in one of the
The project could cost between
$50,000 and $100,000, but chair-
woman Louise Robson said they
were thrilled with the success of
their fundraising so far.
''The dedicated group has raised
just over $10,000 so far which has
enabled us to enlist a local architect
to draw up plans for the maternity
unit,'' she said.
''This is the first step towards
renovating the birthing rooms.
''We want to create a beautiful,
relaxing and modern space for
women to birth in. It's very
exciting to see it started.''
The group had a number of
exciting things planned, including
an ambitious raffle this month.
''Prizes for this include several
Apple products including an iPad.''
The group has enlisted the help of
local schools and community
groups with the raffle, which would
see some funds raised going back to
Another fundraiser -- Bulls 4 Babies
-- involves local farmers donating a
bull calf to the group, which will be

Cyclists could hit
first trail this summer

Southlanders could be biking
Southland's first cycle trail this
Contractors from Te Anau, Wal-
lacetown and Queenstown are
working on the Around the Moun-

District Council group manager
services and assets Ian Marshall
said it was hoped the first stage
would be finished by the end of
''It will be challenging with winter
Five construction tenders for stage
one of the project, which is being
funded by a $4 million Government
grant, were let in mid-June with
work happening at both ends.
This stage would run from King-
ston to Lumsden and then across to
Mossburn, with much of the track
using the old railway embankment,
Mr Marshall said.
The route for stage two is still to be
confirmed after consent was turned
down. However, the council was
still hopeful of continuing the ride
through the upper Oreti area,
''which many say is the jewel in the
crown of this trail, scenically''.
It was hoped the ride would be
completed 18 months from now,
with many small business oper-
ators reviewing how they could
capitalise on the increase in visitor
Three years of planning and
negotiating had gone into this trail,
Mr Marshall said.
The trail is part of the Govern-
ment's $50m nationwide initiative.
