Auckland Council has drafted an updated food safety bylaw to increase the safety of food sold to the public.

Copies of the summary of proposal, full draft bylaw and submission form are available online or at libraries, service centres or local board offices. Submissions will be received from 4 February to 4 March 2013. Play your part in delivering the world's most liveable city.

Folk fans flocked to the Kumeu Showgrounds for their popular Auck- land Folk Festival. Kiwi music marked the theme of the 40th annual event which featured performances, workshops and con- certs. A highlight included a guest appear- ance by Kiwi songwriter and enter- tainer of 30 years Don McGlashan. Other memorable milestones were the Home Made Jam family concert, a Shanty Session with the Maritime Crew, a Blind Date Concert pairing musicians drawn by ballot, a Next Generation Concert and kids sessions including storytelling and music- making group Rhubarb. The Tui for the Best Folk Album 2013, presented after the Tui Finalists Concert, was awarded to the album Halves by Auckland-based alt-country group Great North. The group has undergone major changes since the release of its debut album in 2010. Songwriter Hayden Donnell married the bass guitarist Rachel Harrison, which inspired him to create the win- ning album s collection of unconven- tional long songs. Other finalists for the Tui were Auckland-based solo artist Brenda Liddiard with Box of Memories and Claimed By the Sea by Wellington duo French For Rabbits. The festival was organised by members of Devonport Folk Music Club, Titirangi Folk Music Club, Auck- land Bluegrass & Traditional Old Time Country Music Club, Tir Na Nog and City of Auckland Morris Dancers. Auckland Folk Festival committee secretary Trude Mattingly says the showgrounds make an ideal festival site, with its large flat camping area, plenty of parking and hot showers.
