The Big Egg

Save The Children


Pictured with the Gisborne entry in the Samuel Parker Centennial Contest are, from left, Mayor Harry Barker, Girl Guides' divisional commissioner Mrs W. J. Bos, and the provincial commissioner, Miss R. Bunt. The model is made entirely of litter, but is only a fractional amount of that collected at the Midway area during the recent Keep New Zealand Clean Week. The book tells of all the work the Guides and Brownies have done to clean up Gisborne. First prize in the contest, which is divided into TV viewing areas, is $2000.


This big egg, which once belonged to an emu, is now the property of Mrs Vivienne Braybrook, 9 Wilson Street. It was sent to her by friends in Australia. It has been blown and is now filled with wax, a job which took Mrs Braybrook a lot of time and patience.


Prior to the recent Save The Children Appeal, a simulated shanty was set up in the foyer of the Regent Theatre. The collection bowl was well filled, so the tableau must have struck home. Taking part in the appeal were, from left, Vicki Nolan, Bron-wyn Reardon, Peter Nolan and Liam Jeory.
