Henderson 09 835 3557 All welcome at visitor centre Welcome: Our doors are open to anybody, says Kumeu Visitor Information Centre manager Bernadette Limbrick. Photo: CAROLYN THOMAS Stylish venue: An art gallery is a feature at the Kumeu Visitor Information Centre. By CAROLYN THOMAS Come on in because we're here to help. That's the message from Kumeu Visitor Information Centre manager Bernadette Limbrick. She says the centre at 49 Main Rd is open to everybody including locals, tourists and out- of-towners looking for advice, help or information. If we can help then we will,'' Mrs Limbrick says. We have oddball things -- it might be: Can you recommend a good far- rier?' But probably the weirdest thing is someone wanting to know if there is a local nudist beach.'' She says people often think the cen- tre is just for tourists. Free maps, internet access and information on beaches, accommo- dation, activities, vineyards and other attractions are available. The centre also has official forms including passport applications because there is no Citizens Advice Bureau or community house in the area. Bookings for Interislander ferry, Intercity Coachlines and Tranz Scenic rail can be done. There is also a gift shop and art gallery. She says a big focus is supporting local business. The centre opened last year after starting out as a stand at the Kumeu Garden Centre a decade ago. Funding comes from council and business association Kumeu Coast and Country Promotions Group. Mrs Limbrick became involved five years ago and now works alongside 13 volunteers and another part time staff member dealing with nearly 10,000 inquires annually. New residents to the area and the elderly often come and she says visitors are usually surprised. We hear over and over again are: We didn't know that you had so much to offer' and what a lovely place this is'.'' Opening hours are 9am to 5pm daily except Christmas Day. Winter hours from Easter to Labour Weekend are 10am to 4pm. The centre is looking for a volunteer with local knowledge for a weekly shift. Contact Mrs Limbrick on 412-9886 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help. Visit www.kumeuinfo.co.nz for more details.
