Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Howick Local Board:

a)      approve the application from Super Kool (NZ) Ltd to operate an ice cream van in the car park areas of Cockle Bay Reserve and Macleans Park for a period of three months (1 December 2022 to 28 February 2023) between 12pm and 6pm on weekends, public holidays, and school holidays.

 

Horopaki

Context

Macleans Park 

7.       67 The Esplanade, Eastern Beach, known as Macleans Park, is largely owned by the Auckland Council in fee simple as a classified recreation reserve, subject to the Reserves Act 1977. 

Cockle Bay Reserve 

8.       47R Shelly Beach Parade, Cockle Bay, known as Cockle Bay Reserve, is largely owned by the Auckland Council in fee simple as a classified recreation reserve, subject to the Reserves Act 1977.

Proposal

9.       SKNZ has requested landowner approval to operate an ice cream van within the car park areas of Macleans Park and Cockle Bay Reserve. The ice cream van will operate between 1 December 2022 and 28 February 2023, from 12pm to 6pm during weekends, school holidays (daily), and public holidays.

10.     There will be only one ice cream van in operation in the area at any one time. This van will roam around and stop in different areas as required – generally for no more than 30 minutes at a time. The van will also trade at the roadside in other locations. 

11.     The applicant will be required to have a valid mobile trading licence, which will be issued by Auckland Council’s regulatory department. This allows the applicant to trade in a public space.

Previous approval

12.     At the business meeting on 15 November 2021, the Howick Local Board approved an application for SKNZ to carry out this activity over the summer period, last year (Resolution number HW/2021/185).  

13.     Staff have not been made aware of any issues arising from the previous approval.  

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Specialist consultation 

14.     The Howick area facilities manager, parks and places specialist and street trading inspector have been consulted and have raised no concerns or objections to the renewal of this approval. 

Options

15.     If the board supports the application, this will enable SKNZ to trade from within the car park areas of the two parks. If the board declines the application, the applicant will not be able to trade from within the car parks and will only be able to trade from the roadside.  

16.     It is recommended that the Howick Local Board approves the application for the following reasons:

·   the ice cream van will add to the enjoyment of the parks, and;

·   the activity will not affect the use of the parks in any way, and;

·   the activity is temporary and is only for the summer months, and;

·   being able to use the beach car park area instead of the roadside will ensure greater safety for customers.

17.     Conditions that will be placed on the landowner approval if approved will include: 

·   the operator is responsible for satisfying all occupational health and safety legislation and regulations, and;

·   public liability insurance must be obtained, and; 

·   full reinstatement will be undertaken should any damage be done to the reserves, and; 

·   dates and times of operation must be limited to those specified, and;

·   ensuring the applicant controls litter, and;

·   ensuring the non-displacement of other park users.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

18.     The van being used by the applicant is a source of emission. However, emissions will be limited as the applicant’s engine will not be running whilst undertaking trading activities. 

19.     This project is not expected to have a significant impact on greenhouse gas emissions. 

20.     This project is not expected to affect Auckland Council’s ability to adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

21.     As discussed above the relevant council specialists were consulted and are supportive of the proposal. Staff do not consider any other council departments or the council-controlled organisations ​to be impacted by the proposal.  

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

22.     The application is consistent with and supports the Howick Local Board Plan 2020 Outcome 1 by enabling people in our communities to feel safe, engaged and connected. It adds to the enjoyment of the reserves and allows the mobile trader to operate safely.

23.     Staff attended a workshop with the Howick Local Board on 30 September 2021 to discuss the previous approval. The board was supportive of the application.

24.     Staff attended a business meeting with the Howick Local Board on 15 November 2021 to discuss the previous approval. The board supported the granting of the landowner approval. 

25.     Staff recommended that the Howick Local Board support the renewal of the landowner approval on 19 July 2022. The Howick Local Board requested that staff attend a business meeting. 

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

26.     Auckland Council is committed to meeting its responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi which are outlined in council’s key strategic planning documents; the Auckland Plan, the Long-Term Plan 2021-2031, the Unitary Plan, and local board plans. 

27.     The operation of the ice cream van does not trigger any Treaty of Waitangi settlement issues or matters in relation to customary rights outcomes. In this matter, iwi consultation has not been undertaken by the applicant as there are no readily identifiable negative impacts on Māori. 

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

28.     There are no financial implications related to this application. 

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

30.     The proposed conditions are deemed appropriate, as no issues were raised following last year’s approval.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Ladies Probus Club of Howick Central

Legal status:

Informal group/ no legal structure

Activity focus:

Community

Project: Howick Central Ladies Probus

Location:

Howick Bowling Club, Selwyn Road, Howick

Summary:

Looking after the welfare of the ladies in this Probus Club.  Also, organsing donations of garments to KidzFirst and to the local Foodbank to assist the local community in this particularly difficult time for low income families.

Expertise:

For a number of years this Club has donated to various organisations, particularly every December, to assist local low income families in the hope that, especially at Christmas, their donations help ease the pressure on as many families as possible.  Experience has taught these ladies which items are appreciated both during the year and especially at Christmas time.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

It has become apparent that many families in the local community are suffering because of the effects of Covid and even though many of our members rely on Government Superannuation to support them, they are willing to make an effort to support the local foodbanks.  The Probus South Pacific Limited Constitution does not allow organisations to solicit funds but Probus Clubs are able to voluntarily support organisations of their choice.  Hence, the local foodbanks have become a priority for this Club at the present time.  Contionuing to support Kidz First has been a favourite charity for this club since its inception in 2003.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     People actively contribute to their community

 

The Committee of this Club actively support each and every member ensuring members who attend monthly meetings are fit and well and encouraged to remain in contact with the friends they have made in this group.  Members who do not attend meetings are contacted to enquire as to their health and current needs.  Many of these women have family living overseas and have very little family assistance available to them.  This Club is a lifeline for many of our ladies.  This is the primary focus of this Club.  Supporting groups such as Kidz First and the local Foodbanks is undertaken by these ladies on a regular basis.

·     None identified

 

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - Any member who has a disability can still participate in helping the community by donating to local foodbanks and many are involved in the baby knitting project.  Assistance is provided to those who wish to go on trips as we always have a registered first aid officer in att4endance.

Healthy environment approach:

Promote smoke-free messages, Include waste minimisation (zero waste) messages, Healthy options for food and drink, including water as the first choice, Encouraging active lifestyles including movement or fitness programmes, Encourage the reduction of carbon emissions or increase community resilience to the impacts of climate change*

None of our ladies smoke and are always open to suggestions as to a healthier lifestyle as living on their own does not give them the enthusiasm to experiment with healthy food options.  Having speakers e.g. Alison Gofton, a reputable cook and cookbook writer, is a very good way to educate our ladies about healthy food alternatives.

 

 

Does your project support any genders, ages or ethnicities specifically?

The Ladies Probus Club of Howick Central is open to women of all ages, ethnicity and religion.  When the Club was established in 2003 women aged 50 plus joined, as did women who had retired and it was a way for like minded women to make friends and feel connected to the community.  In this day and age where many women work well beyond retirement age, women who are taking care of grandchildren to enable their parents to work, means membership numbers for all clubs is on the downturn.  We are very fortunate to keep our membership level relatively high and it is a credit to the Committees over the years who have worked extremely hard to provide a friendly and welcoming environment for their members.  Old age is not kind and it is important for elderly women who are still relatively independent to be able to meet and communicate with others of the same age on a regular basis.  The funding requested will allow this Club to hire a bus for one out of Auckland trip and one local trip only because as with everything, the cost of hiring a bus is extremely expensive.  Quotes for bus hire are not available until the actual location is chosen and the bus company estimates the cost of mileage, fuel and the cost of hiring a driver for the day.

 

Financial information

Amount requested:

$1000.00

Requesting grant for:

The funding assistance requested is to enable the Club to provide an outing for these ladies.  Due to the impact of Covid the cost of hiring a bus has become impossible as the funds available to the club by way of membership fees is extremely limited.  Many of these ladies rarely leave the Howick area and appreciate being taken somewhere different, even if only once a year if funds permit.

If part funded, how would you make up the difference:

Due to Covid the Club's financial resources have suffered over the last 2 years with members not being able to attend meetings and therefore not being required to pay membership fees.  Assistance to help this group of ladies take a trip out of the Howick area  will put a spring in their step and will be a way of repaying them for their continuing support of local projects, e.g. Kidz First and Foodbanks in particular.

Cost of participation:

The cost of hiring a bus has increased to between $800 - $1000.

The funding required is to enable the Club to hire a bus to take our members on at least one outing out of the Auckland area during the year and one local trip in the Auckland area. In the past the Cub could organise two or three trips per year but given the increased cost in petrol and basic wage payments, only one trip out of Auckland per year is now possible.  It is really important to organise these events in the interests of our ladies health and mental wellbeing.

Expertise:

Lorelle Stranaghan (myself) has been the co-ordinator of the Pest Free Howick Ward project since 2019 (conception was in 2017 with a few events)  since coming onboard I have been instrumental in growing the project and rolling out many regular and well received events, establishing and fostering connections with community, local board, Auckland Council and Schools.  I am passionate and care deeply about this project.  The PFHW HUB we identified 2.5 years ago and I have been progressing this since this time with the Tūpuna Maunga Authority and our wider Pest Free Howick Ward team within Council.  I am also the co-ordinator for Trap Library East Auckland which is another enviromental group supporting PFHW with mustelid and possum traps.

Promotion:

All of our comms, collateral for events, facebook page, website etc all have Pest Free Howick Ward, A Howick Local Board funded project.  We invite the HLB members to our events and always thank them for their support when ever we are speaking publicly (and privately) we have the local board logo on all our presentations and correspondence.  We have flags  and pull ups and community noticeboard signs, all with local board logo on, and now we have our own local board flag in the new design.  We have purchased a gazebo with Howick Local Board funding last year, that has local board on it and Pest Free Auckland logos.  Please refer to our website www.pfhw.org.nz for many more examples

 

Environmental benefits:  Activate the space that is currently under utilised to prevent vandalism and anti social behaviour, to encourage community to enjoy the maunga responsibly, create a pest free halo for native birds, insects and reptiles to return and habitat.  Encourage and facilitate a regular connection for TMA and the Howick ward community with a welcoming HUB base and pest plant and pest animal action, build a community of volunteers ready to care and help protect our local maunga Pigeon Mountain Ōhuiarangi.

 

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Our community wants to protect their environment and the recent kaka sightings in Cockle Bay & Farm Cove show efforts are working.
More native birds (ruru, tui, fantail, kaka) and backyard birds, insects and reptiles thriving with low pest numbers - this starts with our backgardens.  Volunteers and community interest is generated from seeing/hearing more birds in their backyard, they can see/hear the direct impact they are making from pest trapping efforts - it is extremely motivating!.  A welcoming PFHW HUB will be able to be utilised to expand this work and action.  Community can borrow tools & resources, other enviromental "Friends of" groups can use the space and work together with PFHW even more, pick up rat traps, attend workshops, upskill young people (via our cadetship programme), attend native plantings/restoration events, attend litter/rubbish cleanups, making a healthier, cleaner environment for us all, and enabling Howick ward community to take direct action and make a difference to our native bird population, as low pest numbers are established, native birds will fly across from the predator-free Hauraki Gulf islands and habitat in our gardens.  Howick ward is a natural bird corridor with our areas of ecological significance leading to the Hunuas.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Empower the community to take environmental action

Ngāi Tai Ki Tāmaki

with recent plantings and pest plant removal at Te Naupata Reserve we hope to build on this collaboration and invite young iwi members in to join our cadetship programme as it will not be just schools based and be able to operate out of the PFHW Hub in the weekends

Many Friends of Groups - based around parks eg. Friends of Macleans Reserve, Friends of Cockle Bay Domain

We already have connection with many of these groups, providing resources and advice, responding to requests etc. but our plan is for those groups to be able to use the HUB space as a meeting place or to host a workshop etc, for the environmental groups to feel supported and their long time efforts to be recognised.  A lot of these groups were existing before 2017 and Pest Free Howick idea was floated.

Howick Ward Schools via Sustainable Schools Auckland Council

Access to Eastern Enviroschools Clusters and teachers, students to continue to offer and build local pest free opportunties

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

·    

As previously highlighted we are working with Tūpuna Maunga Authority to secure the lease of the cricket pavillion.  We will be working with Jordan Winiata the conservation advisor for Ōhuiarangi on establishing a pest free halo on Ōhuiaranga, as directed by them.  And building on past planting opportunities on the maunga and helping to build the connection between the TMA with the local community.  We also have recently been involved with plantings at Te Naupata Reserve with Ngāi Tai ki Tāmaki and wish to involve them via Pest Free Plant and Animal workshops and our cadetship programme.  We would love to tell the stories of the past, and what life was once like on Ōhuiarangi, but only with TMA approval

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - Drive way up to the building, toliets on site that are large council owned facilities, we could insall a ramp for a wheel chair possibly, door is not wide enough to get wheel chair in but if we changed the windows to a sliding door we could accomodate.  If this was deemed as a requirement we would need to allow for more money for the sliding door, building consent to change the opening size and to make a ramp to the verandah.  Open to ensuring wheelchair access if HLB require.  Certainly accessible for our outdoor events.

Healthy environment approach:

Promote smoke-free messages, Include waste minimisation (zero waste) messages, Healthy options for food and drink, including water as the first choice, Encouraging active lifestyles including movement or fitness programmes, Encourage the reduction of carbon emissions or increase community resilience to the impacts of climate change*

One of the other projects I co-ordinate is the Howick Local Board funded Howick Ward Schools Waste Minimisation Project (first year was 2019/2020)  This project enables 25 (some new, some continuing) schools each year to minimise their waste by 40% by providing funding and advice based of analysis of school waste audit data and the plans and existing resources the schools may or may not have.  We promote this project and live this concept ourselves and  have purchased a worm bin, and recycling/sorting bins for the HUB already.  We also offer for the last 2 years to our waste minimisation Howick Ward schools - Carbon Footpring Accounting - this is a pilot for Auckland and we are one of the first for NZ.  We have a carbon footprint expert Nigel Zhang (also our PFHW Chinese community engagement conservation advisor) who was a Carbon Footprint Auditor for United Nations.
Our outdoor activities and encouragement of our community to be out in nature and to help nature are proven to be excellent for human connections, health, and vitality.  Volunteering opportunities are excellent for people's mental health.  Aside from the many plantings at schools and parks we currently facilitate, we will be onsite at Ōhuiarangi and will be able to offer direct activities and training opportunities to our community onsite and regularly with the Pest Free Halo at Ōhuiarangi and the restoration plantings on the maunga that TMA organise, and we promote to our community and schools.

Financial information

Amount requested:

$67333.00

Requesting grant for:

Building maintenance, repairs, renewals and heat pump - our lease with TMA is peppercorn lease and a condition is that they are not responsible for any building maintenance.  As you will note from the photos and the building report the building condition is pretty grim, not suitable for use by the public to the extent that we would like to  - thoughout winter it is very cold, though summer it is very hot, hence the heat pump addition & opening windows with glass for natural light (chosen sliding windows for safety concerns with eye level opening windows on the verandah)

If part funded, how would you make up the difference:

Yes we will still go ahead with the lease, but we would have to cut back to the "must have" part of the building maintenance report - itemised on schedule and we would have to apply to other funding opportunities and the rollout of the HUB would be significantly delayed.  The HUB co-ordinator role will take a lot longer to get up and running and the role not able to be maximised, the building is not suitable for use by the public currently.

Cost of participation:

No not at this stage and not till building is up to scratch and operational. No immediate plans for any entry fee/ticket type arrangement

Please note that while we have received signifcant funding and support from HLB and NETR these funding amounts are dedicated to specitic outcomes, we cannot use the funding to spend on CAPEX / building maintenance - hence the need for this dedicated grant.

The Depot, Sir Lloyd Drive, Lloyd Elsmore Park, Highland Park, Auckland

Summary:

To operate our After School, School Holiday and Community Day Programmes for children and adults aged through 5 to 65 with disabilities/special needs. We provide a community service that promotes a sense of belonging to a child/adult with a disability and provide quality focused and fun respite services within the community to those that are our most vulnerable.

Expertise:

LifeKidz Trust has been in operation for over 19 years, many of our staff have been with us for over 10 years.  We run training programmes for all our staff prior to all holiday programmes and put a lot of time into ensuring all of our staff are up to date with all aspects of what can be involved with working at LifeKidz.  We have some extremely challenging children in our programmes so on-going training is very important to us all.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

The community will benefit by having a well established programme for children & adults that is set in a positive environment. It is encouraging, rewarding and promotes a sense of belonging. The need for our service is crucial to families so that they can have the respite needed when trying to need the demands of special needs/disabled children. Unlike other programmes we have a very high ratio of support workers to children, in receiving this funding we are also able to continue offering rewarding employment opportunities to the youth of Auckland, and to provide them with the training to continue along the path of working with children/adults that have disabilities. There are so very few places in Auckland that provide this service and we have families travelling in excess of 2 hours each way to get their child to attend our programmes. We have also noticed a major gap in the services for transitional programmes for young adults on leaving school that are unable to work or hold down a job for various reasons. We have fabulous facilities available to us to run a programme and the knowledge of what is required for it to be successful and rewarding.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     People are safe with access to services to support their wellbeing

 

To collaborate with the local community to create opportunities that promote the disability sector in a positive sense. To get involved and make use of all the wonderful facilities on offer to us within the local area, using library facilities and classes, we also make fantastic use of the fitness centres in the area. To train support workers to understand about the issues that face children and young adults and families with special needs. To provide a team of trained carers, to care for the children while in our programmes, thus allowing other families members to have some much needed respite knowing that their child is well cared for in a safe environment.  
It is encouraging, rewarding and promotes a sense of belonging. To ensure the children and adults in our programmes feel wanted within their and all other communities. The need for our service is crucial to families so that they can have the respite needed when trying to need the demands of special needs/disabled children and adults. To support the wellbeing of all our clients and families within the disability sector in a positive sense. To encourage participation in cultural and sporting activities and events especially within our local area.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - 95% of our children have a life time disability.
All the children and adults that attend our programmes have a long term (lifetime) disabilities. Without our programmes and facilities they may have no where else to go! Many of our clients require 1:1 care to ensure their safety and well being, those that attend are
the most vulnerable members within our communities.

Healthy environment approach:

Promote smoke-free messages, Include waste minimisation (zero waste) messages, Healthy options for food and drink, including water as the first choice, Encouraging active lifestyles including movement or fitness programmes, Encourage the reduction of carbon emissions or increase community resilience to the impacts of climate change*

Our programmes are all smoke free, and we actively discourage all that attend, work or volunteer with us that smoking is unhealthy and not allowed anywhere within our facilities. We recycle all waste, offer healthy food and teach our clients to cook healthy foods. We are active and get out to the numerous parks within the Auckland area to exercise, and walk to anywhere that is close to save on fuels and help with our fitness.

The funding if granted would go towards our Support Workers wages, without these amazing people we would not be able to support all the families that we can at present.

If part funded, how would you make up the difference:

We would try and fundraise for these items, this is very difficult at present with everyone struggling with the cost of living and expenses on the increase.  It may also mean that we would not be able to accept as many children into the programme, meaning families would not get the respite that so desperately need.

Additional information to support the application:

Many of our families really struggle to be able to take their loved one to many public places, this can be due to the attitudes of others towards their child or if they are aggressive or can become aggressive while out due to many factors. It is great that we be able to offer
somewhere that they can go and don't need to constantly feel vulnerable and always on edge. These children and their families deserve as much respect as everyone else in this world, but unfortunately don't always get this.

Project: Elder Support Program

Location:

Summary:

The initiative's main goal is to plan activities for our senior members so they feel included and develop their social intelligence. In order to foster personal growth, mutual support, and a sense of belonging, we connect people in the community in ways that allow them to express themselves. Workshops on nutrition, exercise, and physical and mental health are regularly held. Numerous festival celebrations and cultural activities are planned in addition to these programmes to foster a sense of identity among pupils. Additionally, annual picnics and outings are planned. To ensure that none of our members face any barriers in taking part in these programmes and activities, we provide subsidised transportation choices.

Expertise:

For the past 25 years, Bhartiya Samaj has been assisting the neighbourhood. We have developed a great deal of expertise in planning these workshops and programmes throughout the years. Since the beginning, we have had a committed team of volunteers assisting us in running effective programmes.

The benefits expected from the project are: 
• Enhancing the quality of life of the elderly within the community 
• Alliance and communal support 
• Create well connected and strong communities
 • Improve social quotient and confidence 
• Overall well-being and emotional assistance 
• Social and cultural identity

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     People actively contribute to their community

 

The project's primary goal is to motivate our senior members to participate fully in the community. Many of our senior members are immigrants, and they require help adjusting to their new environments. We constantly encourage children to feel a part of the community in order to forge stronger bonds, improve connectedness, and foster a greater sense of independence. They are provided with a forum free from bias where they can express their ideas and improve society.

Project: An Safe and Playful Sandpit

Location:

6 Glenside Avenue, Pakuranga, Auckland

Summary:

Our current sandpit cover is shrinking and ripping with years of serving. Cats, dogs and wasps are taking advantage of this and leaving a health and safety issue to our tamariki. The storage box has a loose lid which may close when children taking sand toys. Besides, sand level has been getting low with years play. We’re going to change the sandpit cover, exchange the storage box and top up the sand.

Expertise:

We have visited several other Playcentre. And this sandpit cover storage is recommended by  Papatoetoe Playcentre.

Dates:

13/06/2022 - 31/10/2022

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

We’re having been operating for over 60 years with having many families joining our center. We have grandparents who used to be members and now join with their grant children. Our members comes from a wide range of culture and kbackgrounds.
Our motto is “Whanau tutu ngatahi - families growing together”. Children have a good place here to play and learn with families around.  Amongst all the 16 curriculum areas, Sandpit is one of our most beloved palace for our tamariki and also one of the area that parents/grantparents are more confident to engaging with tamariki to play.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     People actively contribute to their community

 

Playcentre is a community group run by parent/caregiver volunteers. Unlike a playgroup, here at Playcentre, we’re a united group that we care for everyone including the adult and tamariki. We invite all family with children age between 0-6 to attend with only 35nzd per family termly donation. And we also encourage the tamariki to get in touch with the community by inviting the St John’s, Fire Engine, Bunnings to visit our centre. A well placed and safe area will greatly encourage new member to join and children to play here.

Playcentres honours Te Tiriti o Waitangi.  We promote Te Reo and tikanga and weave them in our play. Sand play is one of the way of promoting natural play. During sand play, we weave in Te Reo, such as “how about we add more awa’ or ‘I see you’re making an manga”. We also cook hangi in the sandpit during the Whanau night.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - Our building has ramps for accessibility. Besides, we’re mindful for all play areas to be accessible to all children including babies that are not walking which means it is accessible to people with walking disabilities.

Healthy environment approach:

Include waste minimisation (zero waste) messages, Encouraging active lifestyles including movement or fitness programmes, Encourage the reduction of carbon emissions or increase community resilience to the impacts of climate change*

Playcentre promote natural resource play which means we use sand, water, leaves, rocks and other element to find in the nature as children toys. It helps to cultivate the image of toys and reduce the waste. 
In the sandpit, digging, transporting, mixing and other movements are naturally engaged. And as sandpit is outdoor, the open area gives opportunity for children to be active and leverage the other equipment near by for being active.

 

 

Does your project support any genders, ages or ethnicities specifically?

The project focus on educating tamaki ages from 0-6.  
Besides Playcentre recognize parents as the most important kaiako. Parents/caregivers are given early child care theory and practice guidance and they can use them when interacting with children in the sandpit.

In previous years we have hosted over 20,000 visitors at this event including local communities and visitors from across the region. It is an important pre-Christmas event in the area and allows Howick Village businesses to provide enticing promotions for young and old. Funding assistance is important to HVA from Howick Local Board to provide traffic management for the safe closure of roads and management of attendees and participants at the event.

Our current projector which was initially supplied with our Interactive Squash Tool is failing and is very faint and can only be used with the lights off . We need to replace the projector.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Interactive Squash is utilised by the schools. We extensively use this tool for all our After School Programs and School Holiday Programs. New members use this tool to train and get familiar with the game. It also benefits the very young children teaching them coordination and developing other skills.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Sports and recreational opportunities respond to the needs of our communities

 

Interactive Squash assists in running programs as a training and coaching aide. In particular it helps more junior players connect with the game of squash by using games and training modules to keep their attention and give them targets. Interactive squash also has training modes for players to use this tool to train by themself or another player. Even those who do not play squash can be actively involved and makes them active.

Requesting grant for:

The club initially paid up to $80,000 for the whole installation of Interactive Squash as it was imported from Germany and we were the first installation in the Southern Hemisphere. As we have had other major repairs this year some assistance in helping us fund this financially would be of great benefit.

If part funded, how would you make up the difference:

We would need to use our reserves which are set aside for future development of our courts or look at other means of trying to raise the funds as the projector is at the end of its life.
