' Richard Palmer They help the needy, work unpaid and make our communities better places to live in. If that sounds like anyone you know, you may want to nominate them for a Far North District Council Citi- zen Award. The council is invit- ing nominations for the annual awards which celebrate the voluntary work of good samaritans. Advisory services manager Richard Palmer asks people to think of others whose selfless efforts deserve to be recognised. We all know people who quietly get on with the business of helping others, often in a humble and self- effacing way. There is no age restriction on nomi- nated volunteers. The only qualifying criteria is that their involvement should have occurred over a prolonged period of time, their contribu- tions must be notable and without payment or reward, and they must reside in the dis- trict. The council will give out up to 10 citizen awards at a special function in February. Nominations forms are available at coun- cil service centres, on the council website at www.fndc.govt.nz or by calling 0800-920- 029. The closing date for nominations is December 10.

By RICHARD EDMONDSON A decade is a long time to spend looking for a home. So it was with much relief that the Hokianga Historical Society finally started building a new museum at Omapere last Thursday. About 25 members gathered at Opononi Area School to celebrate the beginning of earthworks on Education Ministry land where the society plans to build a kitset home to house its collections. Chairman Hiku Cher- rington said it was a great occasion for the society which has been homeless since coastal erosion forced it to aban- don accommodation in the Omapere iSITE in June. The society had spent about 10 years searching for a permanent home, investigating about eight museum sites in the Omapere area, but none had been suitable. It s been a long, hard road. Anyone else would have given up, but because of the make-up of the historical society and their executive, they carried on. Members were grate- ful to the ministry for allowing the society to lease land at Waianga Place for a peppercorn rent. We went to the Minis- try of Education as a last resort. They supported the concept and that s why we re here today. Opononi Area School commissioner Chris Saunders said it didn t take much for the society to convince him of the benefits of having the society s collection of his- toric photos, genealogical records and artefacts on school grounds. It will be a wonderful resource for students. Building committee chairman John Metcalfe said it took the society years to raise the $62,000 building costs from visitor donations, membership fees and annual dinners. The society still needs to raise $49,000 to line and fit-out the museum, which could be built by Christmas. It is hopeful of receiv- ing a grant from the ASB Community Trust.
