The man was swim- ming alone at night in a dangerous, isolated area of the beach. Around 7.45pm the alarm was raised that someone was missing and Muriwai lifeguards conducted a search. The body was found around 30 minutes later. Muriwai Lifeguard Service chairman Tim Jago says the risk of drowning can be minimised by not swimming alone. Don't swim at night when the tide is outgo- ing and the sun is set- ting as this makes it difficult for people on the beach to see where you are,'' Mr Jago says. Water Safety New Zealand general man- ager Matt Claridge says the number of drownings this year is frustrating. We had a good year last year, this just shows we can never be complacent.'' He says children should be supervised. The primary res- ponsibility for children sits with the parent or caregiver. It shouldn't be deferred to the life- guard.'' Mr Claridge says people should also never dive alone. Playing for a cause Iconic band: Herbs will be performing at Aquatic Park Parakai Springs on February 12 as a fundraiser for a group of Kaipara College senior music students travelling to Europe in July. Photo: SHANE WENZLICK By RANI TIMOTI It's not your usual sausage sizzle fundraiser. In fact it's heating up as an even better one for Kaipara Col- lege senior music students plan- ning to perform in Europe this year. The group is organising a con- cert this weekend featuring renowned New Zealand band Herbs. The Music Equals Positive Addiction -- Aotearoa Sounds con- cert is on February 12 at Aquatic Park Parakai Springs. Organiser Nick Roberts says instead of doing the usual sausage sizzle fundraisers, running the family friendly concert was an great idea. The college's group of 18 students and 4 adults intend to perform in Vienna, Salzburg, Munich, Paris and London in July. He says parents are totally involved'' in raising funds to make sure the the trip goes ahead. Mr Roberts, head of the Kaipara College Music Department, says the group will be busy preparing for music competitions as well as the trip. The concert also headlines Box Juice and Unknown Peace. Other performers include KJ's, Twin Coast, The Westwoods Lani Rich- ards and Avalon Hewitt. Mr Roberts is rapt at the sup- port from the main groups who are donating their performances for free, along with the generosity of Aquatic Park Parakai Springs. We're hoping to get up to 3000 people to the concert,'' he says. The Music Equals Positive Addiction -- Aotearoa Sounds con- cert runs from 3pm to 9pm and is alcohol, drug and violence-free.
