The eclectic premises in Newton has recently opened as a community workshop aimed at giving people space to undertake creative projects and build their ideas. It's a place where anyone can come and visit,'' says Ed Aretino, one of the workshop's founders. Tangleball is about reusing and repurposing, making people realise they can do these things and have fun while doing it.'' Projects range from urban beekeeping and gardening to fixing computers and fitting out retro arcade games with modern functions. The space has a tool library for people to borrow equip- ment and holds network evenings and get-togethers for interested locals. Tangleball also means Tumeke Cycle Space now has a permanent home. The community bike work- shop was started by a group of cycle enthusiasts last May and has been run from Grey Lynn Farmers Markets for the past six months. Tumeke collective member Alex Raichev says Tangleball is the perfect place to house their workshop, because the values of both organisations are the same. We have the same goals, but different projects,'' he says. The community-based bike workshop is a place where people of all skill levels can come to fix and learn about bikes and cycling in Auckland. It's about empowering people to learn the skills themselves, and not just being a place where people drop their bikes in to get fixed then leave,'' collective member Claire Dann says. Tumeke is run by volun- teers and holds DIY work- shops at Tangleball on Sunday mornings, where anybody can bring their bike along. Although the cycle space is autonomous of Tangleball, members of the both organis- ations say their projects run parallel, and everyone involved is working to increase the profile of the work space. Tangleball is holding an open day tomorrow and organ- iser Jaco van der Merwe is calling for anyone interested to come along and sign up as members.

Free family day festival Waitangi Day cele- brations will kick off this Sunday with a free fam- ily event at Okahu Bay on Tamaki Drive. The Waitangi Day Fes- tival, run by the Auck- land Council, will feature culture, food, art and live entertainment. It will start with a tra- ditional powhiri from Ngati Whatua o Orakei. Okahu Bay was the original site of welcome by Ngati Whatua chiefs when Governor Hobson established the city of Auckland in 1841. The festival will run from 9am to 10pm.
