It is a shame that so many vital services offered by non-Government organisations in our city are reliant on philanthropic and Government funding. Almost every year, they have to fill the myriad of forms as they apply again and again in the hopes of securing money for vital programmes. It is like facing losing your job every year. Neighbourhood Trust finds itself in this position with the counselling role it offers quake-stressed children. Principals are worried that if they do not find funding, kids will not get the support they need and if principals are concerned we should be concerned (page 1). There was a bit of a buzz around Tane Apanui’s idea for a train service that will go from North Canterbury, through Papanui and into the city. We tracked him down to have a bit of yarn (page 5) Hei kona, Shelley Robinson
