Weekend of accidents At least four car accidents took place in central Auckland last weekend, leaving two people critically injured. Fire Service northern communications centre shift manager Jaron Phillips says two cars collided on the Hobson St motorway on-ramp on Sunday at about 1.30am. A car also flipped on the northwestern motor- way between St Lukes and Great North roads on Sunday evening. It flipped into a peri- meter fence on the motorway. One person was injured.'' St John communica- tions manager Linda Donaldson says ambu- lance crews treated and transported one critically injured patient to Auck- land Hospital. In a separate incident, a car hit a powerpole on Hillsborough Rd and caught fire at 12.30am on Saturday. Mr Phillips says the attending fire crew en- countered a minor acci- dentontheway--on Blockhouse Bay Rd. He says the powerlines were down because of the Hillsborough Rd acci- dent. The car fire was extinguished by fire crews and no one was inside. One person was treated by ambulance staff.'' Ms Donaldson says the critically injured person was taken to hospital. Festival's about family fun Candyfloss and street performers are set to delight an Auckland sub- urb next week with preparations for the Kingsland Festival well under way. Venues have been booked to stage events showing the suburb's true community feel. Kingsland Business Society manager Chris- tine Foley says the event is a way to build family and community involve- ment. It's a great oppor- tunity to get the com- munity together in their village.'' The festival kicks off at 2pm on April 9 with the New North Rd carpark a Kids Zone with a bouncy castle, candy floss and ferris wheel. The Kingsland Trinity Church will hold its Crafternoon tea craft market from 2pm and performers will entertain outside Sauvarins Glass from 5pm. Music will be set up at the Kingslander, Neigh- bourhood Bar, Toro, El Camino and on a main stage in the Rail Plaza. Search Kingsland fest ival on Facebook for more information. Quake concert cancelled An earthquake appeal concert with more than 16,000 members on its Facebook event page has been cancelled. The Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Con- cert was to be held at ASB Showgrounds to- day. Due to a lack of numbers in ticket sales to date, the event was at risk of making a loss instead of raising money for the Red Cross. As such I decided it was inappropriate to con- tinue with it,'' organiser John Paul Moss says. Organisers are con- sidering another event on a different date with a longer lead-in time.
