Surprise offer made in historic Golden Bay grandstand battle- Nelson Mail (Online)

"A glimmer of hope appeared for the supporters who are fighting to save an historic grandstand in Golden Bay."

President of the A&P Association Duncan McKenzie stood up at the Golden Bay Community Board meeting in Takaka on Tuesday with a surprise announcement.

McKenzie said the association would donate more of the grounds to the Tasman District Council for carparking at no extra cost, subject to approval at the next meeting.

"There's rumours that the A&P aren't supporting saving the grandstand but that's not really true," he said.

"We do want to keep the grandstand for the shade and elderly people to sit in. The reason we have not been pushing for it is because we still have to work with the Golden Bay sports recreation group and we don't want to burn our bridges there too much. But we definitely want to keep it."
