By standing there I was able to read it , not that anyone in a car might , something about they are soon to start making this corner into a roundabout and to expect delays / detours . Next time I walk / ride past I shall check the expected start times but the heat from the sun forced me to seek shade before I melted. I think it was in a couple of weeks. I was too busy thinking that will make that an interesting corner now seeing as some truck and trailor units , plus other vehicles , are still doing 100 k's when they hit that junction. Of course it may aid those that are fleeing Police that seem to love Tweed as their escape route making it Russian Roulette at that corner. Enjoy the sun while you can .

It costs nothing to join our choir, we welcome people from all over Invercargill, and because we are a community choir we sing at retirement villages from time to time and participate in community events when invited to do so. A collection is taken at the beginning of each practice and this goes towards the rental of the room - a fee of $2 per person. If you wish to talk to one of the choir about anything you are welcome to ring either Dot Anderson on 214 0647or 027 7558 098, or Edna Weedon on 216 6124 or 027 441 7785.

It is also a way to ensure that loved ones are remembered for generations to come. Memorials carefully selected, designed and crafted can be a reflection of a person’s life and can create an atmosphere of peace, joy, and lasting memories for all those who visit and pay their respects. Avenal Park Funeral Home assists Southland and Otago families in organising a lasting memorial for their family.

At every stage, from the initial design, through to checking of the layout prior to the blasting of the stone, families are involved in the process. Quotes can be given prior to work commencing. We are members of the New Zealand Master Monumental Masons Association, so you can be assured we offer a high standard of service and products. We also clean, repair and restore existing headstones and plaques.

Please do not hesitate in contacting us to discuss options. You can phone us on 0800 033 925, email office@avenalpark.co.nz or visit our showroom at 75 Fox Street, Invercargill.
