New map shows off tourist points around Wainuiomata Continued from page 1. It comes as part of a partnership between Hutt City Council, the Wainuiomata Community Hub and Love Wainuiomata. Ma k ing stuff happen champion for Love Wainuiomata, Esther Venning, said she hoped the map would eventually form part of an “information hot spot” at the Wainuiomata Community Library which would see an area of the library dedicated to showing off what Wainuiomata had to offer. “We want to have an info panel for any visitors to Wainuiomata, and that could be people from overseas or locals. “The whole idea is that they would be coming to Queen Street, stopping here and maybe wondering where they

could go next,” she said. Esther said the map had been designed by a local artist, Little Gem, and focused on pictures of all of the activities certain destinations featured. “[We picked] the cartoon imagery to really show people what’s on offer. We want people to look at the map and quickly see the activities at each place,” she said. “It tells a whole story with an image.” Esther said the map would be slightly bigger than A4 and would be available at the library and local businesses in the future.  What do you think?

Artists wanted for local mural By Emma McAuliffe

Local artists have two days to get their applications in to create a mural on one of Wainuiomata’s Chorus boxes. The Hutt City Council and Chorus are currently looking for mural artists for five of Lower Hutt’s large Chorus cabinets. One of these boxes sits on the corner of Meremere Street and Parkway. Graffiti manager for the Hutt City Council, Ray Gorin, said the project came as part of a wider programme by Chorus looking to dress up cabinets around the country. “There’s been a number done [in Lower Hutt] already and now we’ve picked five more that we thought would be quite good to dress up. One of these is in Wai-

nui, on the corner of Parkway and Meremere Street- there’s a big one there,” he said. Ray said the council and Chorus were looking for expressions of interest from established mural artists who were looking to create something around the community the cabinet was located in. “We’ve left it up to the artist but we’d like them to keep the community they’re in in mind when they submit. For example if there are particular birds in that community they could feature on the mural,” he said.  For more information on how to make an expression of interest head to the Hutt City Council website, Expressions of Interest close on Friday, January 20.
