Club Meeting 
Last weeks speakers 
Janet Young works for the DCC as the Safety and Sustainable Travel co-ordinator while Hamish Cameron is Workplace Travel Planning Co-ordinator and is employed by the University, DCC and Health Board. Some funding comes from Waka Kotahi. 
They have several goals.  They are encouraging more active travel (walking and cycling) which will have health benefits. Sustainablity and emissions reduction is another goal while improving equitable access to the various facilities and workplaces in the City is another. There is a recognition of challenges around the new hospital build. 
Both the DCC and Otago Regional Council have challenging targets for public transport and active travel which are not being met.  We are well below Auckland in percentages  
An effort is being made to improve the use of public transport and it is noted that the current problems with reliability does not make it an attractive option, in particular for workplace travel. They showed train timetables from the 1960's which indicated it took 18 minutes to go from Mosgiel to Dunedin. 
Some of the topics under discussion include 
  • Better bus options 
  • Low fares for older and disadvantaged groups 
  • Bike hubs on University and Health Board land  in particular) to give safe parking for ebikes 
  • Park and ride facilities 
  • Car share options 
  • Fleet initiatives 
  • Parking 
Thankyou from the presenters 
 We certainly enjoyed our time but felt like our presentation could’ve been clearer and more concise!

The experience gave us a lot to think about regarding how we communicate, and hopefully we can only improve in future.

What a lovely group of people and an amazing amount of work you manage to get done.

Thank you so much for having us.

Editors Comment.  Maybe we should invite them to become members and meet our "lovely group " more regularly.


Last week 4 members did not put in apologies. This upsets our caterers and we need to improve.
Club website 
Pres Lloyd mentioned that the photos were somewhat dated and we should look to put on current ones. 
Pete advised we are having trouble trying to organise this fundraiser.  We own a shipping container, about 5000 small ducks but none of the major fundraising corporate ducks.  If we were to run another race we would need to purchase some more big ducks at a cost of $3,000-$4,000.  Alternatively we could sell the small ducks to another Rotary Club and sell the container, maybe for $3,000.  
To be discussed at the Club meeting on 19 July. 
What's Up 
Russell was surprised but recovered. 
He told the story of a friend who was caught speeding and decided to challenge it.  Solicitor Alister Logan told him his chance of being successful was poor. Come the court appearance and Alister said the chance was now reasonable.  After the prosecution had laid out the facts the defence was revealed. At the time of the merger of Waikouaiti District Council with Dunedin City no-one had designated that Malvern Street was a road. When the magistrate asked Logan to submit evidence of this he advised that it was up to the prosecution to prove it and this had not been done!
Russell reckons you always have to make a challenge!
