With a staff of just 5, but an army of volunteers, Victory Community Centre serves a community of 6000 plus children and families. Gareth Cashin runs the Victory on the Move programme and works with volunteers to run activities such as yoga & palates, art & craft, activities for young people and young families, a hungi pit, community garden and the annual Matariki winter lantern parade. Penny Molnar is "Camp Mum". She's the Be Well Community Nurse, helping people get connected to services & activities which support people's health & wellbeing. She's a Quit Smoking coach, run sessions on Diabetes Awareness, can support people to maintain or improve their mobility.

The annual service dedicated to songs of worship includes eight choirs made up of diverse ethnicities and cultures, including visiting wor- kers from Vanuatu, Tonga, Samoa and the Cook Islands, along with members of Nelson's Japanese, Chin, Zomi and, of course, Maori communi- ties. It's a chance for people to come along and hear songs of praise in languages that we wouldn't normally get to hear,'' Nelson Multicultural Council co-ordinator Evey McAuliffe said. It's the fifth year Rainbow Praise has been held and once again refre- shments will be served in the cathedral grounds afterwards. This will give everyone an oppor- tunity to mingle and talk to one another. Please bring a plate of food to share,'' Evey said. The service starts at 2pm. Protesters marching Anyone with concerns about the Gov- ernment's plans to partially privatise state assets is encouraged to hit the street in a march through Nelson this Saturday. Aotearoa is Not For Sale Nelson spokeswoman Rachel Boyack said the event was timed to coincide with actions nationwide. Marchers will meet at Millers Acre at noon and proceed up Trafalgar St to the 1903 site, where speakers will address the protesters. Speakers include Grey Power president Roy Reid, who sponsored the petition for a referendum, Labour Party MPs Maryan Street and Damien O'Conn- or, Green Party MP spokesperson Aaryn Barlow and Campaign Against Foreign Control of Aotearoa spokesperson Jenese James. We will be asking speakers to out- line their solutions to the Govern- ment's plans to sell Mighty River Power as well as other state-owned assets,'' Rachel said.
