30 Days of Fashion and Beauty Wrap Party
It was a BEAUTIFUL day for the Wrap party and what a way to finish the 30 days of Fashion and Beauty. The sun poured down and as the DJ’s played their tunes, everyone stopped to relax and soak up the sunshine as they watched the girls battle it out in the stiletto standoff.
Five lucky attendees were drawn from the thousands of entries, but there could only be one winner on the day. A chap named Simon Collins– our only male in the selected five – gentlemanly let the ladies scramble for the keys (hoping that the one they had selected was the winning car key) and as he picked up the last remaining key we all wondered who would win.
The deal was that Simon needed to be at the draw to win the car, but Grant is the one who will get to drive it!! They have come to some sort of arrangement over it all, but that is the nuts and bolts of it. Simon is wrapt any way - so happy endings all around!

Brainstorming a better Newmarket
Imagine being able to drive straight off the motorway into the heart of Newmarket without dawdling on congested one-way streets. Or taking a bike ride down Gillies Ave, through the Lion Nathan site to the tranquility of Auckland Domain.
These ideas from the Waitemata Local Board are among the "blue sky thinking " for Khyber Pass and Broadway.
