Bowler takes law into own hands

Posted by SC Comments Off on Bowler takes law into own hands

The photo might be a bit cheesy, but this heart-warming story of the Piha Bowling Club ladies, and a few lads, stepping in to capture a boy in a Toyota doing wheelies in the Domain, will please a lot of us who get sick of seeing the turf being ripped up.

Of concern was the report that the Summer Groove or Vibe event led to excess alcohol consumption. This event was a first – a beach and dance party on the beach to promote a brand of clothes. Previous policies for beach events have largely been focused on recreational/sporting events such as surfing and surf life saving, environmental events such as beach clean-ups and “beach fun for the family” events such as sand castles.

With so many events – virtually every weekend recently – does Piha need brand promotion and dance events more suited to a city beach than a high-risk dynamic beach only reached by a difficult windy road with 100 kph speed limit?

That’s a question for the local community, the Piha R&R and the Waitakere Ranges Local Board.
