Current water use has already reached peak summer levels, however Masterton residents are asked to continue to stick to the alternate day water restrictions in the meantime and remember to conserve water wherever possible. All sprinkling (except hand held hoses) is restricted to alternate days i.e. even house numbers on even calendar days and odd house numbers on odd calendar days. • Check for Leaks - A leaking toilet may not be seen or heard, but it can waste more than 16,000 litres in a year. Even a slow drip from a tap can waste 200 or more litres in a day. • Let the lawn go brown - A lawn uses more water per square metre than any other area in your garden. While your lawn may go brown in summer, as soon as the autumn rain comes, the transformation will be dramatic. • Use a good mulch - Mulches can prevent up to 73% evaporation loss and they are one of the cheapest and easiest ways to make the most of water in your garden. The best mulch is a well - rotted compost which will also improve the soil structure. Council staff will visit neighbourhoods to encourage co-operation with water restrictions Save Water To Avoid Further Restrictions Lorna Potter 06 3772001 New Image 06 377 5102 Jackson Street, Masterton Wairarapa.

By PIERS FULLER Like a successful American Idol hopeful, Alice Mills first words to her mother when she found out she was going to the World Championships of Performing Arts were: Mum, I m going to Hollywood. Her mother didn t know what she was talking about until the 17-year-old Masterton student told her that she had been selec- ted to join a team of 20 young New Zealanders to head to Los Angeles to compete in this international talent competition. After a late audition in early January, Alice was accepted in the modelling category for the World Championships . As a keen clothing designer and young model, Alice has experience on both sides of the catwalk. Her gar- ments have won awards in the Wairarapa College Wearable Arts Competition and the Fashion Extravaganza. Alice s mother Tessa has a background in fashion and her father Matt is a GP, which is also a field she would like to explore as a career. Alice plans to start a bachelor of nursing and psy- chology next year. A contestant in last year s Miss Teen Wairarapa, Alice credits pageant director Brenda Lewin for helping her develop her model- ling and catwalk skills. She was great at getting our confidence up and trying new things, she says. Alice intends to make the most of this opportunity. The two-week Los Angeles experience based in the Westin Bonaventure Hotel also allows participants to take part in workshops in areas outside of their chosen talent . Alice says she would love to take part in the boot camp for act- ing, dancing, music and other forms of entertainment. I want to get better, get out of my comfort zone, try different things, she says. The championships give people a taste of the industry and teach participants about casting, call- backs and personal meetings. Invited participants from 40 countries are gathering at the annual Hollywood event where medals are awarded as well as $130,000 worth of United States scholarships. The finals will be broadcast live through a webcast and there will be an awards ceremony. Living in Tauranga while she completes a six-month course in healthcare, Alice is working even- ing shifts at McDonald s to save enough money for the trip and is seeking sponsorship. The WCOPA has sponsorship opportunities where sponsors logos are displayed during shows. Alice is seeking sponsorship from businesses or individuals. Con- tact: email@example.com.
