But the $5.1 million Surf Club project at Muriwai is nearing its build target. More than $4.2m has been raised and another $800,000 pledged. The club and multi- purpose community facil- ity planned near the Muriwai Golf Course is expected to be under con- struction this year. It has support from patron Prime Minister John Key. The Muriwai Volun- teer Lifeguard Service is being forced to shift from its beachfront site further south because of erosion. The existing clubhouse will be demolished and the Muriwai Regional Park site reinstated by the Auckland Council. The new clubhouse will feature a lifeguard operations wing, lounge, storage and social areas, a medical station shared with the Muriwai First Response unit, a class- room for school and edu- cational field trips, bunk- rooms accommodating up to 40 people, a com- munity lounge with retractable doors cater- ing for about 120 people dining style and more than 200 for large func- tions, a main kitchen with smaller kitchenet- tes, and meeting rooms and display areas. The Muriwai Life- guard Amenities Trust was established to run the project, with club stalwarts Neil Reid and Tim Jago among the six trustees. Building is expected to take about a year.

Wetland plant a favourite A native species of wetland rush has beaten the silver fern and pohutukawa as this year s favourite New Zealand plant. The public voted in the annual favourite native plant elections held by the New Zealand Plant Conservation Network. The winning species -- bamboo rush (Sporadan- thus ferrugineus) -- highlights the issues sur- rounding New Zealand s plants and ecosystems. The tall rush is now only found in the Waikato region -- 95 percent of its wetland habitat has been destroyed. Thousands of votes were cast by plant enthusiasts from New Zealand and around the world with more than 140 different species nominated. The top 10 ranking plants for 2011 range from lowly liverworts to lofty kauri.
