Invercargill Gathering

Tim Shadbolt 3Web

Good time had by all at Parliamentary gathering of the Southland clans

By Alan Tristram

Invercargill Mayor Tim Shadbolt  chatting – his favourite occupation – with Invercargill-born Sandra Linning from Raumati  South on the Kapiti Coast at a massive gathering in Parliament’s Banquet Hall to celebrate everything about Invercargill and Southland.

They were discussing Sandra’s brother David, who Tim knows in Invercargill.

Those who were there said Mayor Shadbolt certainly knows how to work the floor with sincerity (and enjoy himself).

There were close to 500 guests with Southland connections at the gathering, including local list MP, and Finance Minster, Bill English, and  Labour MP Trevor Mallard.

Several prizes were awarded on drawn entry ticket number, with the top prize being a stayover on Stewart Island. The woman who drew the first prize magnanimously let the prize be redrawn (Perhaps she had been there once before!)

It certainly sounded and looked like a great celebration, but risking raining on the parade but surely not being a wowser god forbid, maybe the day will come when all big eat-ins by rich folks in well-off countries will have to announce that they’re donating to some charity for the homeless and the starving. Yes, I did watch the Opening of the Commonwealth Games where they asked the world to donate to UNICEF. Great idea!
