Thames Coromandel Update with Mayor Sandra Goudie

Posted May 26, 2020

Supporting local businesses, keeping people in jobs and keeping the economy churning in her communities is what Thames Coromandel Mayor Sandra Goudie told Brian Gentil she’s all about at the moment.

The magic number of 100 will be here in time for gatherings around the Coromandel this long weekend.

Brian asked Mayor Sandra what’s happening in her area this weekend so she shared an idea she came up with that her staff have expanded on.

Called the 60 Second Sell, Mayor Sandra wants students to create 60 second videos highlighting the great things happening in their part of the Coromandel.

• It has to be ONE MINUTE – no shorter or longer.

• Win $500 for your school and showcase your video through Council channels.

• There are three categories: Junior, Middle and Senior School age.

• The deadline date for entries is Friday 12 June at 5pm.

The Mayor is looking forward to showcasing the videos. “It will be a challenge but it will be so fabulous because our young people can be so incredibly creative.”

This week the Coromandel-Colville and Mercury Bay Community Boards will meet for the first time since lockdown. Coromandel-Colville meet today Tuesday, and Mercury Bay on Wednesday.
