Call for volunteer angels with wings FROM Page 1 He is seeking volunteers with access to four-seater planes to fly patients from places like New Plymouth, Taumaranui or Hawke's Bay for specialist treatment in Wellington. Kapiti Coast Airport will play a big part in that, because we will probably have to land here,'' he said, citing better weather and more flex- ible air traffic control as factors. Wellington is a very diffi- cult airport to use, so it just makes more sense to use the airport here and then get an Earth Angel to drive the patient in to Wellington.'' Mr Weller said it was Para- paraumu's airport that inspired his passion for flying 43 years ago. I lived in Porirua East and worked as a caddy [at Para- paraumu Beach Golf Course], and the highlight of my day was coming here and seeing the planes taking off and land- ing.'' Mr Weller flew 10 missions in Queensland for Angel Flight Australia before returning to New Zealand last year. Discovering the service did not exist here, he set up the charity and is excited about its first flight. To volunteer as a pilot or driver, see Angelflightnz.com. Hallensteins closing doors Last hurrah: The Hallensteins store in Coastlands is closing after 42 years. By TALIA CARLISLE Kapiti men will have fewer options for clothing when Hallensteins closes its Coastlands store next month. The chain -- one of the orig- inal retailers when the mall opened in 1969 -- has declined to comment on the move. Coastlands manager Jan Forrest would say only that it was a decision Hallensteins had made. They had talked to us about alternative premises and they advised us they would be leaving the mall,'' she said. They've been a good offer- ing to our customers and they've been a good tenancy mix for 42 years.'' The store will close on April 13 when neighbouring retailers Stirling Sports hope to take over. Stirling Sports manager, Jim Rankin-Lloyd said they had plans to expand their store but details are yet to be confirmed. Plimmerton resident Brent Parsons, 41, has been a cus- tomer at the Hallensteins store since the mall opened in 1969 and says their departure is not good at all''. I do all my shopping at Hallensteins, I've got a Hallensteins card,'' he said. [Their closing] doesn't leave much for the blokes does it.''Eighteen-year-old Neil Modi from Raumati South said he will have to drive to Otaki or Lower Hutt to buy men's clothes now, as there are no other men's clothing stores in the area. It's pretty sad there's not many shops in [Coastlands]. Everyone else has got better shops than we do. [Hallensteins is] probably one of the better shops.'' Men's clothing options in Paraparaumu were now left to Jay Jays, Just Jeans, Cotton On, The Warehouse and Farmers. Farmers is doubling its men's range, Mrs Forrest said. Kapiti Observer advertising saleswoman Wendy Stratmore has been buying clothes for her son from Hallensteins for 20 years. I think it's sad, I've always liked the store,'' she said. I think they have good quality clothes at reasonable prices.''
