State highway 35 users against the speed restrictions that come into force on the 8th September 2020.

We are opposed to the permanent speed restrictions, from Pouawa to Okitu (100km/hr down to 80km/h), and the seasonal speed limit being reduced to 60km/hr. We want the speed limit left at the current level, instead other safety measures should be looked at. We believe that the speed reductions will further isolate the East Coast communitys, and only add to fatigue for all road users.

Change the 'Parkin Drawing Prize' to the 'Parkin Art Prize'

The Parkin Drawing Prize organisers are refusing to quote "wrap rules around" this prestigious drawing competition, with up $25000 top prize money given to art that doesn't resemble drawing in the slightest each year.  They have chosen to use controversy and debate as excuses for the reason to award this money to what should be classified as Modern Art, and have admitted there is only one person who's opinion matters: (Comment by Parkin staff on their facebook page): "Art is subjective and we ha

Remove our waka MAMARU from the Mamaru Clinic title

Mamaru Clinic has had our WAKA name embedded in their title for years, and for years they have FAILED to appropriately serve and treat the descendants of MAMARU WAKA.

New Plymouth Girls' High School Vape Policy

Dear Stella Bond (Acting Principal), Currently, at New Plymouth Girls' High School there is no policy against students vaping on school grounds. This is an issue because vaping with high levels of nicotine has been proven to negatively affect the human body and can lead to addiction. Young people are at risk of being peer pressured by others to participate in this and as their brains are not yet fully developed they are unlikely to consider the longterm effects of vaping.
