Far North arts stalwart remembered

Far North District Council Mayor, Moko Tepania, has paid tribute to Far North Creative Communities Committee Deputy Chair, Janet Planet, who passed away late last week after a short illness.

He said Janet was a staunch supporter of the arts in the Far North, running the South Seas Gallery in Russell and helping artists through Creative Communities and her work.

Kahika Tepania, a former council appointee to the Creative Communities Scheme, says her contribution and dedication to the arts will be missed and offered his aroha to her whānau.

A private family service will be held today (9 August), with a community event to follow in the coming weeks.
