This Sunday s concert in the Greytown Music Group series features the popular Duo Jackson from Nelson. Miles and Margaret Jackson, who guitar and violin, have been playing together for more than 35 years with a diverse range of musi- cal styles. Sunday s concert features a pro- gramme of classical, jazz and Latin music, and includes a new three- movement work titled Andalucia, which the couple wrote while on one of their many visits to Spain. The beauty and authenticity of their performance creates a unique musical flavour and style that appeals to a wide range of audiences. With winter coming on, the con- cert organisers have responded to suggestions of an earlier starting time. As a result, Sunday s concert will start at the earlier time of 3pm. As usual, the venue is 57 Wood St, Greytown and all are welcome. Seats are $20 ($10 for students) and reservations may be made by phoning 304 9025 (business hours) or 304 9497 (evenings and week- end). Park plan up for comment A plan for the improvement of Stella Bull Park in Greytown is now avail- able for people to look at and have their say on. The South Wairarapa District Council has consulted with various groups and employed landscape architect Rachel Callaghan to come up with a draft management plan for the park that surrounds the old library building in the middle of town. The draft plan suggests that prun- ing, relocating and even removing some trees and fences will open up the space from Main St and East St. The existing fountain will be converted into raised gardens includ- ing plinths for temporary sculpture exhibitions. In keeping with the original purpose of the park as a community gathering place, more picnic tables and seating will be pro- vided, plus a paved area for markets, performances or exhibits. There is also a plan for some fruit trees that the public will be able to harvest. Kouka Cottage near East St is a key part of the park and many of the elements surround the heritage building. Following the community feedback phase, the development plan will be finalised. The draft development plan can be found at swdc.govt.nz. Paper copies are available at the Greytown Library or at the council offices at 19 Kitchener St, Martinborough, along with feedback forms. Once people have had a look at the draft plan they can post in a feedback form or email to feedback @swdc.govt.nz or write to Stella Bull Park Consultation, South Wairarapa District Council, P O Box 6, Martinborough 5741. The deadline for feedback on the plan is June 7. A WORD OF ADVICE MINISTRY OF CONSUMER AFFAIRS Hasty credit deals can be cancelled Sometimes you can get so swept away in the excitement of buying a new big-ticket item that you just take whatever credit deal is on offer. But don t forget you have at least three working days to decide if you want to cancel the credit deal. And those three days start when you get all the paperwork. Working days are Monday to Friday, so if you get the paperwork on Friday you can cancel on Tuesday. That means you have a chance to look at all the details in your con- tract. (In the rush to get the deal signed you might not have read through the contract properly.) So take the time to find out what the interest rate is, what the fees are and what will happen if you miss payments or you can t pay the loan back. Then you can check with a bank, a credit union or another finance com- pany to see if they can give you a better deal. Take along your contract and see if they can offer you a lower interest rate, fewer fees, and less severe penalties for missing payments. For example you might have got a good price for a new car, but then you realise that the interest rate is quite high, there are high fees for things you don t even understand, and the creditor has the right to sell your house if you can t pay the loan back. If you act quickly you could find a better deal somewhere else that will save you money and hassles in the future. If you decide to cancel the credit contract you need to do so in writing. It needs to get to the creditor within three working days if they gave you the paperwork by hand, five working days if they emailed it to you, or seven working days if they posted it to you. So you have to act fast. These rules are under the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act and only apply to the credit part of the deal and don t automatically mean you can cancel the purchase (for example if you decide you don t want the car anymore). You may be able to cancel the purchase if you haven t received the goods, or haven t been told about your right to cancel.
