What about going through Jim Anderton. Might be brownie points for him but last night he seemed interested on behalf of Housing NZ tenants. I'd get in his ear and get him for a voice at least.
I spent first 6 months of school at Hornby
I and my sister spent time at Hornby School when I was about 9. I loved the winter that year. Snow as far as the eye could see, and the beautiful Cashmere Hills. Was quite an eye opener for this young Aucklander. I got the best knitted jumper that year from my Grandma who was in charge of my brothers doing school in Papanui. Went rather swisho with my levis I must say. :)
