TCDC tried to strike out the group’s application to quash the council's decision in April 2019 not to sign the Local Government New Zealand climate change declaration. And TCDC sought $25,000 as security for costs from the local group before the case could proceed. Both of TCDC’s applications were dismissed by the High Court which ruled the group’s case was taken in the public interest. The case will now proceed to a full hearing.

“If I hear music, I just want to dance – body seems to just move!” says dancer Audrey, 84. Poet Brian, 86, says “Poetry helps me to question and understand the meaning of life”, followed by a witty “– haven’t worked out what it means yet”.
