Both councils will subsidise television recycling drop-off sites from April 22 as part of the Government's TV TakeBack programme which coincides with New Zealand's switch from analogue to digital television. From April 22, Nelson people can recycle unwanted televisions at the Nelmac depot in Vickerman St, and Tasman people at Richmond, Mariri and Takaka Resource Recovery Centres. A list of participating retailers is available at tvtakeback. govt.nz/where-can-i-recycle If you want to know how to keep using your present television, see goingdigital.co.nz/what-you-ll-need/ equipment-3/equipment. The subsidised $5 fee (down from the present $25) will apply for the first 4300 televisions collected at council sites from April 22. Jubilee anyone?

Easter planting Forest & Bird is organising tree planting at Paremata Flats Reserve by Maori Pa Rd near Cable Bay every day over Easter from 8am till 4pm.

The pipeline work is still proceeding from Poleford Bridge to Smith's Ford Bridge and although this section of road is still closed, the mountain trail is accessible via the temporary route along the pipeline bench. The Nelson City Council apologises for any inconvenience caused. Check out the club The Madhatters Toastmasters Club is holding an open meet- ing on Friday, April 5 and anyone interested in joining or learn- ing about public speaking is wel- come. Vice president of publicity Jonathan Thiart said he would never have talked in front of large groups before joining a Toastmasters club. He said he had been quoted research statistics which claimed that 89.7 per cent of opportunities in life were given to people based on their ability to communicate. Many people lose out on incred- ible opportunities simply because they are too nervous or lack the con- fidence they need. Whether you need to close a sale, maintain a relationship or just make a point, being able to communicate effectively is essential. By being part of a club you can develop many skills as well as speak- ing in front of groups. This includes time management, how to organise meetings, and effective evaluating and leadership. Putting yourself out there is the only way to improve and for me there is no environment more encouraging than that of one of the Toastmasters clubs,'' he said. You might go into a meeting with some nerves but when you leave you have a newfound confidence.'' Jonathan said people could learn to confidently share their message and create incredible opportunities for themselves. Members meet from 7am till 8.20am in the boardroom of the AA Building on Halifax St. The entrance to the meeting is at the rear of the building and up the stairs.
