Tuesday November 21 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THE FRIENDS of Avonhead Cemetery spokesman Clive Paris doesn’t pull any punches (see page 1) over the decision not to include the name memorial in the cemetery’s name. The issue is whether to add memorial to take into account the 2011 earthquake victims who are interned there has been ongoing for a long time. But now the city council has made a decision that adding the name doesn’t meet required criteria for cemeteries. But Clive isn’t impressed: “They (city council) have always had a backward looking mentality when approaching ideas or issues and tend to go into defence mode rather than looking at the issue and responding positively.” Good to see Tongan league star Tuimoala Lolohea drop into Hornby last week (page 4). They’ll need to be at their best to beat England this weekend. – Barry Clarke
