Elections can help to find allies

Good ideas can find support as part of an election campaign. I am encouraged by the interest from other candidates, and supporters, for natural burial. This option for Newstead has received little support on Council thus far but remains on the agenda. It makes sense for those with an environmental focus and for those who think that providing choices for people is part of being a responsive Council. We are looking forward to the visit later in the year of an English man, Ken West who is well-versed in natural burial. Lynda Hannah from Motueka, who wrote Living Legacies and studied natural burial on a Churchill Fellowship will be visiting Hamilton next month. So, sometimes, the planets align!
