This applies whether the addition is a lounge and bedroom, or a deck and landscaping. An investment in a good Designer or Architect is usually money well spent. These people have an "eye" for angles, proportion, form, colour etc that most lay people don't. This can give a building the "x factor" and added value. A poor design can "ruin" a building, even though it may add some functional utility. I suggest that you at least get your plans critiqued from someone with a good eye before spending your hard earned dollars on an addition or alteration.While not being a Designer, I am happy to advise on value. 4250982AA IN BRIEF Newspapers online Did you know your local community papers can be viewed online?

Light up Sanson Sanson's Sunday Market wants their village to get all lit up this Christmas and attract visitors to see the lights. The market organisers are challenging their community to use Christmas lights in a creative display outside and around their homes this month. Residents of Dundas Rd are pooled to win one of two prizes put up by the market organisers, and every other residence and business in Sanson is in the pool for another prize when the lighting displays are judged before Christmas. Opposition to boundary change The Palmerston North-Manawatu district boundary change has attracted 21 appeals. Local Government Commission chief executive Donald Riezebos said about another 20 people had filed notices that they wanted to appear at the boundary hearing, and others had until Friday to register interest. Mr Riezebos said the appeals would probably be heard in Palmerston North or Feilding in February. The dates and venue are expected to be announced soon. Tell us about people who show community spirit SANDRACROSBIE Praise must be heaped on some of our teenagers who are showing a great sense of humanity and com- munity spirit. Late last month I witnessed a frail elderly gentleman struggling to walk up steps and open a door to a health centre. Some passing schoolgirls asked if he needed help and then gently assisted him up the steps. It s a shame that the some adults work- ing in the building didn t have the same humane ideals. When asked if they could assist him to his car when he left, they replied by saying they couldn t help him as they are not allowed to touch clients . Okay -- he may have been a client -- but he is also a human being who just needed a bit of extra care. If young schoolgirls can assess that, surely health services staff could do the same. Feilding Police recently rang the Feild- ing Herald office to heap praise on a group of teenagers who assisted staff from The Warehouse with chasing a shoplifter from the store. They followed the accused and when police arrived were able to help with ascertaining his whereabouts. Constable Neil Martin gave the group praise for automatically offering assistance and showing maturity. We would love to hear about other people in our community who go out of their way to help others. Post on our Facebook page, email or drop in a letter. Pride on parade I was bursting with pride on Sunday afternoon when I saw the huge effort so many people made to make the Feilding Christmas parade and carnival such a success. Whether it was turning out to cheer the floats on, marshalling or being creative with constructing a float, the whole town pulled together fabulously. It was a great day for community spirit and a wonderful way to kick off the Christmas season. LETTERS Congrats and thanks Congratulations and thank you to everyone who made the Feilding Christmas Carnival and Parade a wheelie awesome success.
