Mr Smith, who grew up in Manawatu, and Ms Fulton have been running Tongariro Lodge, a fishing lodge and conference venue in Turangi described as world renowned. Martin Sargent and Pauline Meredith-King have been running Highden Estate for 12 months. When their con- tract finished this week, they had achieved most of what they set out to do, leaving with a good business set up, and a full diary of weddings and conferences. The painting of the outside of the 120-year-old building is under way and will be completed next year, after the wedding season. We have bookings for every weekend during the wed- ding season until the end of 2012 and there are bookings for 2013 and 2014 already,'' Ms Meredith-King said. Mr Smith said they were coming in at a good time for new managers with a good basis of events and conferences set up. We are looking forward to a new challenge, at an excit- ing venue. There are very few beautiful 1880s residences in New Zealand and many of our overseas guests love history. They will be attracted to staying in such a grand old building. There are synergies between Tongariro Lodge and Highden,'' he said. While we are here for the local weddings and confer- ences, there are a whole stack of people driving past. We just need to wind them in.'' With his experience with overseas visitors who are pre- pared to pay for a helicopter to fishing spots and hunting sites, he can see these sports, hiking, and motor sports at Manfeild all attracting high-end visitors to Highden. We had a lot of visitors who had heard New Zealand had lovely gardens, but there are very few gardens around Turangi, while the Manawatu has many beautiful gar- dens. We would like to build a really good restaurant which will give opportunities for cooking classes. The opportunities are exciting,'' Mr Smith said. Dreams flow at forum Fighting prejudice: Krishelle Berkahn, left, Tiffany Nowakowsky, Melody Kelly, and co- ordinator Mel Boerboom. Photo: LAURA WALTERS By LAURA WALTERS For the first time, a group from the Feilding Young Dreams education pro- gramme for young parents made a pres- entation at the council's Photovoice Youth Forum on how they believe they could improve the town. The group of three young mums, and Young Dreams co-ordinator Mel Boerboom, told Manawatu District Council representatives and community members on Monday what they believe should be changed in Feilding. Krishelle Berkahn, Melody Kelly, and Tiffany Nowakowsky suggested improvements be made to their facilities at the Central Districts Community Play Centre. They suggested the toilet and kitchen facilities were moved so they were not next to each other. And said they would like more privacy to discuss sensitive issues in their office. Young Dreams has been running for the past two years. Ms Boerboom said the community realised there was a need for an edu- cational, and supportive facility for young parents. Young Dreams teaches cooking, play centre training, and first parenting skills. The group has catered to parents aged 14 to 26. There are currently 10 parents using the service. The aim was to set up a supportive, friendly, non-judgmental service,'' she said. Ms Boerboom said her philosophy was to give the young parents a cuddle and then have a talk. The group from Young Dreams also recommended public toilets were better maintained in the area, and a private breastfeeding room was added to the toilet facilities in Manchester Square. The group also believed people within the community made assumptions about them. Founder of Manawatu Rural Support Services Judy Jack said the Social Issues Network Council of Social Services was having a managers meet- ing to address this issue of prejudice. Melody Kelly said when she was a young mother in an abusive relationship Young Dreams helped build up her self- esteem and made her a better cook. Photovoice Youth Forum director Lisa Foggin said Manawatu District mayor Ian McKelvie suggested the Young Dreams group presented their thoughts on how to make Feilding a better place. He felt their views were not well rep- resented,'' she said. The Photovoice programme was designed to encourage Manawatu Dis- trict school children to state what they believe could be improved in their com- munity, and how. Feilding Intermediate School students Lewis Atherton, Alex Snaddon, Drew Manning, and Hugh Dickson also made a presentation at the Youth Forum meeting about the local skate park. The group of 13-year-olds suggested a new all-age park closer to town was built. They believed the litter and graffiti at the current skate park made it unsightly. The group suggested a new park was built, but the current park on South St was kept because of its good design and out-of-the-way location. Chairwoman of the Manawatu Dis- trict Council's community wellbeing committee Alison Short said all graffiti in the district was cleaned up by the council within 48 hours of it being reported. She also said signs had gone up in every public toilet in the district telling people how to report graffiti. There will be two more Photovoice Youth Forums next year to bring to light things which could be improved within the community. If you see graffiti please report it to the Manawatu District Council at 06 323 0000.
