- Now that I have confirmed the Window display at the Green Party Office, we can ADD this information to any flyiers and posters that we put up around Dunedin.

- Places to seek permission to display posters:
A poster will be ready on Monday at the next nappucino.


- Window DCC marketing office (Civic Centre building, opposit the lift)
- Dunedin Libraries (includes Waitati, Port Chalmers etc)
- Dunedin Parents Centre
- Supermarkets
- Kindy noticeboards
- NEV Community Newsletter (email sent)
- Dunback Store. (confirmed) There seems to be a group of keen clothies in the Palmerston/Karitane coast area who we really should get it touch with.

My submission speech went REALLY well this morning.
Well received by the Council panel; a media rep was present so I'm hoping that I will get a mention there; one councillor in particular was very positive.
The start of what I hope will be a very positive and beneficial relationship between the DCC and the DNN (Dunedin Nappy Network).

Can everyone please check the ODT over the next few days.

The media reporter for the Otago Daily Times at the Hearing today phoned me this afternoon to check if i was a Miss, Ms or Mrs in his ...... STORY!!!! wooo hooo :smt041 :smt040
(It's likely to be about ALL the submissions but I think mine sounded pretty cool!)

All this recent media attention is so fantastic for the Dunedin Nappy Network, I just wish we had an event coming up in the next couple months to rebound off this publicity. Maybe we will have to put on a midwinter event!!
