PAGE 5 ST JOHN VETERAN awarded service medal. PAGE 7 Sports stadium plan revealed Sports space: A proposed new sports stadium which would be used by both Feilding High School and community groups. Photo: SUPPLIED By BOBBIE NICHOLLS FAHS Feilding High School is look- ing to establish a large sports centre on the school site which would also be available for community use. Principal Roger Menzies said the school is looking to place the build- ing on the vacant school land on the corner of North and Churcher Streets, which would allow easy access by community groups out of school hours. Extra off-road car parking is included in the plan. The planned sports centre would be twice the size of the Civic Centre stadium, and include two basketball courts, volleyball, badminton and possibly netball courts. Retractable seating and a viewing gallery would accommodate 1500 spectators. The facility will have seminar rooms, a weights room and a kitchen/dining room on the second floor, above four changing rooms. Mr Menzies said two of the chang- ing rooms would be available only to community groups while the other two would be used by the students during school activities. There will be storage space along one wall for the possible use of other groups. The school would contribute a sig- nificant sum towards building costs but will be seeking support for funds from the Manawatu District Council, community groups and trusts to complete the $5m project. It is estimated about $2m will be needed to be raised. The school has been in discussion with the council over funding sup- port. Mr Menzies said Feilding lacks a suitable large indoor sports facility, especially since the closure to tra- ditional users of the old I A and P hall at Manfeild. We believe such a large facility needs a core user during the day, Mr Menzies said. The school would be this core user. FAHS Feilding High School is seeking community support for such a facility, which is expected to open in 2013. Mr Menzies is interested to hear from any community group which needs a permanent space for their group to meet. Ascertaining the potential use of the building will be important when applying for funding. Email interest to email@example.com New mayor not till New Year Ian McKelvie, Rangitikei s new MP will stand down as Manawatu Dis- trict Mayor next month. He intends to resign on December 15. That date means a by-election for the next mayor would be held in the new year. Resigning earlier would have meant the by-election would be held during the Christmas and New Year s Eve period. Mr McKelvie won Rangitikei on Saturday with a majority of 8741 votes, a reduction in Simon Power s 2008 majority of 12,042. His intention in Parliament was to get stuck into issues around agri- culture, the environment, and sup- porting rural New Zealand and people with disabilities. Mr McKelvie said he knew as a backbencher he was not going to change the world, but he wanted to represent the views of the Rangi- tikei residents. He was excited about his new pos- ition and admitted he had a lot to learn. He has already been to Welling- ton for a National caucus meeting and induction to Parliament. I m going to have to learn very quickly, he said. In his victory speech on Saturday night, given in front of about 200 party faithful at the St John s Church Hall in Feilding, Mr McKelvie spoke of his strong family links to the region going back to the 1850s. I don t believe we have any rights in life, property or otherwise. We must earn them, he said. Those who have, must give a hand up to those that haven t. Labour Rangitikei candidate Josie Pagani, who received 8111 votes, offered her congratulations to Mr McKelvie on Saturday night. See page 3 for more on those already vying to become Mayor.
