Thanks from the Stadium

Dave Somers, Retail Services Manager Spotless Catering provided the club an update on Liquor Management and some of the pending changes.

He has been with Spotless Catering working at the Westpac Stadium since January 2006. He joined 3 days before the sevens tournament that year.  He has seen many changes over the years. He provided an overview of the changes since the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 which came into force December 18th 2013.

He thanked the Club for assisting and for being flexible during this year’s sevens tournament. He mentioned out that tickets sales were slightly down, alcohol sales and reported accidents requiring medical help were also well down.

As part of the changes, the stadium has now introduced roving managers who will walk around the concourse assisting and working with other Duty Managers with intelligence and information before patrons are served. More information for us will be communicated.

The LCQ Bridging Test updates LCQ holders who trained under NZQA unit standards that were developed under the repealed Sale of Liquor Act 1989, and tests their knowledge of changes in legal obligations under the new Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012.

The new Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 came into effect on December 18th 2013.

All Duty Managers that work at the stadium are required to complete the bridging test: and then email your certificate to Tony Heyward who can forward to the stadium.

Please see Tony before you do the test - he has a booklet that has background information in it. Tony will have some booklets at Rotary on Tuesday night.


Book Fair

An encouraging response has been received from our wider community as our doors opened at the Book Fair this weekend. Perfect weather for people coming out on Saturday along with attracting the foot traffic to the Tawa New World mall. It’s been a busy weekend, as we also had duty managers at the Hurricanes/Crusaders’ game held at the Stadium. Thanks to all who came along to help - we look forward to reopening next weekend.

Tawa Community Awards

The Tawa Community Awards ceremony was held on Friday 20th June at the Tawa Community Hall to recognise individuals and organisations who have made significant contributions to the Tawa Community.

Tawa Rotary sponsored the Tawa Rotary Young Employee Award. One of Rotary's Avenues of Service is Vocational the aim of which is to:

  • promote high ethical standards in businesses and professions.
  • recognise the worthiness of all occupations and
  • foster the ideal of service in the pursuit of all vocations.

It is within this avenue of service that Tawa Rotary recognises a young person who has been working hard to establish a career and is making a positive contribution to their employer and workplace, and to the community.

There were two nominations for the Tawa Rotary Young Employee Award:Steven Blackmore Steven Blackmore (receiving his certificate from the Mayor) of Mexted Motors Ltd and Anton Taylor of Aquaheat NZ Ltd. The winner of the category was Anton Taylor, photographed with President Irene Corpuz and Her Worship Celia Wade-Brown.Tawa Community Award to Anton Taylor

Anton joined Aquaheat NZ Ltd about a year ago, having left school to take up apprenticeship in sheet metal/light engineering.

In addition to his day work with Aquaheat, which provides practical skills, he has completed two unit standards in his first year which is a considerable achievement in such a short time.

 Anton has fitted seamlessly into the team at Aquaheat and is a well liked and respected young man among his fellow employees.

Three Rotarians were also recognised in the awards. They were Tom Humphries, Brian Frampton and Richard Herbert, as was Marjorie Todd, wife of the late Rotarian Alan Todd - pictured below receiving their awards from the Mayor of Wellington Her Worship Celia Wade-Brown.
