Patchy weather didn't dampen the interest of more than 2000 visitors to the Muriwai Arts Trail. Organisers were rapt with the fantastic response to the event which attracted visitors from the city and further afield. The main exhibition was at Houghtons Bush Camp with seven open studios and a fine craft market at the Only Fools and Horses facility. Feedback has been extremely positive,'' co- organiser Danielle Hart says. Like last time, people were impressed with the cal- ibre and variety of work. We had almost double the amount of artworks this time from over 50 local artists and the standard was very high.'' The artists also enjoyed the experience, especially new participants keen for the next one and several locals inspired to return to their art. The trail was supported and funded by the Rodney District Council ARST Fund, Simon and Angela Little from Bayleys North West, and staff from Rollercoaster. A long-term goal for the artistic community at Muriwai is to establish a community facility to use for exhibitions, studios, an artist's retreat, a venue for art classes, lectures and school holiday programmes. Text service for deaf A New Zealand Fire Service television campaign is pro- moting a service for deaf people. Text 111 gives direct access to police, fire and ambulance to the hearing impaired who cannot use a phone. The Fire Service worked closely with Deaf Aotearoa on the initiative. Chief executive Rachel Noble says it's empowering for the deaf community. More than 400 people have signed up since it started in October. The Text 111 initiative has been a major event,'' Rachel Noble says. We are thrilled that the Fire Service has developed this commercial in our language as it will help edu- cate even more deaf and hearing impaired people about the service. Personal safety has understandably always been a very high priority for Deaf people.'' The service is not a substi- tute for calling 111. Deaf and hearing impaired people can register online at www.deaf.org.nz or www.police.govt.nz/deaf-txt.
