Promoting Te Aroha The f O n o i t a Organis Month

JUNE 2013

Edition 14 Circulation 3100


In New Zealand there are 11,000 Lion members belonging to 400 clubs in seven districts. Chartered on 22 May 1962 the Lions Club of Te Aroha has been serving the local community for over 50 years. An all men’s club, the membership presently stands at 40. Te Aroha Lions are community volunteers who seek to help young people, the elderly, the ailing, the needy as well as caring for our environment. We are actively involved in providing support to local organisations and community events. You will see our members in their hi-viz Lions vests as gate keepers, event marshals, helpers or just mucking in at working bees at various events and projects around the town. This year we have assisted at the AP&H Association show day, Domain day, Aroha Cruise-In, Te Aroha Athletic Club cycle race, YES talent quest, Country Kids Waitoa, Te Aroha Playcentre and helped many other individuals and groups. We also assisted the Lions District 202L project, providing help for the Balloons over Waikato event whereby our members worked as security groups. Through various club fundraising activities Te Aroha Lions are able to provided financial support to local organisations and this year we have assisted Riding for the Disabled, Community Patrols, Foodbank, Volunteer Fire Brigade, Red Cross community van, the Little Theatre, Toy Library, Te Aroha College senior prize giving and many others. The Waikato BOP Cancer Society Lions Lodge at Hamilton and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Trust are two regional organisations to benefit from donations by Te Aroha Lions and the local Events Centre Trust has received our financial support as well. Te Aroha Lions are involved in many projects of benefit to the community. We have completed a short section of

track restoration on the wetlands walking track and currently are working on creating an open space lawn and garden area beside the town library. The club has a group of ‘handy home helpers’ who are able undertake small tasks for elderly, sick or disabled residents. These members tackle simple tasks like changing light bulbs and smoke alarm batteries, shifting furniture, small painting or gardening jobs and similar tasks which can be difficult for these people. In a joint venture with our fellow Lions club from Paeroa, a cyclist shelter was erected on the Hauraki rail trail near the Mangaiti hall, funded by Te Aroha Lions Club with the construction undertaken by the Paeroa Lions. Te Aroha Lions Club was recently granted approval from the Hauraki Rail Trail Trust to undertake a landscape planting and care project on a short section of the rail trail at the approach to Te Aroha township. This project proposes to tidy the areas adjoining the cycle track and will see a great number of native trees established by Te Aroha Lions, adding a much needed lift continued page 14

Scott Simpson, M P Coromandel Valuing our seniors I’m delighted that core services like health and education have been put at the top of the Government’s spending list in Budget 2013. The message I get from constituents all the time is that these are the things which benefit the greatest numbers of people and address the needs of core groups in the community including both our children and our seniors. In my time as MP to date, I have been privileged to meet with many older New Zealanders across our region including in Te Aroha. Our seniors are an integral part of the Te Aroha community providing the backbone for so many of the voluntary organisations we depend upon. That is why I fully support what this Government is doing to ensure the security, wellbeing, and respect all our seniors deserve. Older New Zealanders deserve to enjoy their retirement. They deserve to know they are being taken care of, and that the financial support they rely on will still be there for them, despite the difficult global economic conditions we’ve faced as a country. Prime Minister John Key promised all New Zealanders that the rate of superannuation would remain at 66 per cent of the average wage for a married couple, under his leadership. Despite the difficult financial times, in the past five years under National the rate of superannuation has increased by 25 per cent - much higher than the rate of inflation over this same period. A married couple now receives $1099 a fortnight in superannuation payments, while someone receiving a single-living alone payment of superannuation now receives $571 a fortnight. This financial certainty is what I want for people in Te Aroha and the rest of the Coromandel aged over 65. But National is also committed to supporting older New Zealanders in other ways too. We want seniors to be healthier and independent in their own homes or in aged care. In the recent budget our Ministers of Health announced aged care and dementia services will benefit from an extra $70 million over the next four years. This is good news for older New Zealanders in care. Another thing older people in Te Aroha tell me is important is feeling safe both at home, and in their communities. That is one of the reasons why we’ve boosted the Police force by 600 officers. We’ve overseen the lowest crime rate in 30 years. There are fewer young people in court. And Police have more tools to do their jobs even better. We’re also working extremely hard to support grandchildren by improving our education system so

it delivers for every child. There are more children attending Early Childhood Education than ever before. National Standards are successfully measuring progress at our primary and intermediate schools, ensuring parents are fully informed about their child’s progress. Meeting so many of our seniors as I travel around the electorate, I am constantly inspired by their stories, and by the things they have achieved, as well as the sacrifices they’ve made to help their families succeed. It’s great that this Government is ensuring the security, wellbeing, and respect, all older New Zealanders deserve.

Prepared for an emergency

Matamata-Piako District Council is part of the Thames Valley Combined Civil Defence Group. This group is made up of our Council, Hauraki District Council and Thames Coromandel District Council. In a Civil Defence event, we work with emergency services and welfare agencies to coordinate a response to ensure the safety of the community. It is also our role to ensure we have trained staff to deal with emergency events. Recently, staff from the three councils worked together on a training exercise where they were responsible for coordinating a response to a mock Civil Defence emergency. The exercise was extremely successful as it was an opportunity for staff to work together and put their skills into practice. It was also an opportunity to identify areas for improvement and training needs. For more information on being prepared for an emergency, visit


Te Aroha Dollars are here!!. Te Aroha dollars are gift vouchers that any one can purchase and if you have been lucky enough to be given some then you can redeem them at any one of the Business association members partaking in the initiative. They will be able to be redeemed by any paid up member of the association. If a member wishes to accept the vouchers they will get a sticker for their window that identifies them as being able to redeem the vouchers. Keep a look out for those businesses that display the stickers the first of which will start appearing next month. There is literally thousands of dollars already pre purchased and ready for spending, any businesses that want to be able to accept the vouchers need to make sure that they are paid up members. Please contact myself or Sarah Ross if you have not received an membership invoice. To purchase Te Aroha dollars as a gift for friends, family, or those staff gifts please visit Piako Stationary or Kay’s Way. Our AGM was on Tuesday 21st of May. The election of officers saw the incumbent officers being re elected with some shuffling around on the committee. Chair - Shaun O'Neill Deputy - Christine Brasell Secretary - Sarah Ross Treasurer - Darren Diprose Committee: Linda Merriman, Athlene Dufty, Bruce Austin, Kris Turner, Mike Ryan, Tara Werder, Ron House, Kim Coughey, Darice Collinson On reflection of the 20012-2013 year it had been a busy time for the association. The positive feeling of the association is having an impact on our town and is something that as an association we are committed to fostering. Thanks to all those business supporting the association, to those that haven’t yet joined we welcome you to join and please contact myself or Sarah Ross.

It’s that time again when farming families are on the move. June 1st marks the beginning of the new dairy farming season, known as "gypsy day". It's the day hundreds of farmers take thousands of cows on the road to start new milking contracts. For some farmers, it marks the beginning of a new stage in their careers and for families it’s a new home, new schools and a new community to settle into. So a big ‘Welcome to Te Aroha!’ to all our new farming families from the team at Te Aroha i-SITE Visitor Centre. When you’re ready to get out and about, use your i-SITE as starting point to find out who’s who in the district like businesses, community organisations and sports clubs. If you have a particular hobby or interest, we’ll tell you who to contact – or you can look them up on our website www. You can also find ‘What’s On’ on this website and a calendar of Te Aroha’s annual events. There are lots of family friendly activities in and around Te Aroha. The Howarth Memorial Wetland walk is a lovely walk in all seasons with different fruit and nut trees meaning there’s sometimes something to munch on along the way. Recent work on the track is making the pathway more accessible for families with pushchairs. You can spend and hour or a whole day exploring the extensive network of tracks in the Waiorongomai Valley, featuring NZs oldest tramline with much restorative work done by DOC. The Low Level Loop Track will take about two hours and is probably just about enough for little legs to cope with! The Hauraki Rail Trail offers a safe environment for all the family to get out and explore the district. And what better way to finish your day than with a dip in your own private mineral spa or a swim in the outdoor heated leisure pools. So come in and see us; we’ll get you sorted with maps, guides and information. And when you want to travel out of town we can help with that too. We book buses, ferries and trains, accommodation and activities nationwide. If you want to see New Zealand – see us first. Pop in soon and meet the team at 102 Whitaker St - We look forward to helping you settle in. Phone 07 884 8052.

Premium foods can enhance the general well-being of you pets for the following reasons: • • • • • • •

= Specifically designed to help your cat or dog stay well = Same ingredients in every bag every time = All you need to feed, no need to supplement with other foods. = Less salt which reduces the risk of heart disease = Smaller stools with less smell = For a healthy or sick pet of any age, = Testing to ensure safety, and proven digestibility & palatability

• = Did you know that many premium foods may actually cost less to feed than supermarket brands due to the fact that they are more energy dense and therefore you need to feed less

It’s now winter, and while we can go to the mineral pools to warm up, the idea of a winter escape is much more inviting. Last month I had the privilege of travelling to Fiji to check out not just one, but ten amazing resorts. The beauty of Fiji is that it is only a 3 hour flight away. It’s paradise on our own back doorstep. The Fijian people are so friendly, their smiles sure to brighten any day. Fiji caters to families, couples and groups very well and is also a popular destination for weddings. The Fijian people are great with kids and cater for them really well with baby-sitting generally available and very inexpensive. Depending on taste you can be staying at a 3 star property in a 5 star location, or a 5 star property in a 3 star location.

Te Aroha Beginnings . . . Identities: Lamp-lighter, Town Crier, Journalist and Newspaper For many years before the setting up of the town's own electricity plant, the town had it's own lamplighter in Mr Gerry White. It was quite a tie, for there were kerosene lamps on all the posts in the main street and adjoining grid. Not only did they have to be lit every evening but extinguished every morning. In the days when there were no such things as radio or even telephones, it is not surprising to learn that early Te Aroha had it's own Town Crier. There had been several appointments, but the one who most refer to was Mr Gerrish, whose voice, it was claimed, could be heard all over the infant town and half way up Bald Spur. The Burrator Weekly News – Editor Ted Axford In 1907 a new doctor settled in Te Aroha. His name was Sidney Axford, and he arrived, just off ship from England with his wife Emily, and three children, Edward (Ted), Mavis and Morris. All three children were to grow up to lead interesting lives: Ted to become a journalist, a special features writer with the New Zealand Herald and the Sydney

Mr Gerry White, Te Aroha's lamplighter

Morning Herald.

Between April 1912 and February 1913, as a fourteen year old Te Aroha boy, Ted Axford wrote and published 29 issues of The Burrator Weekly News, providing a running commentary on the life of the family and the town. His range of interests, and his coverage of town and family news, were remarkably wide. The name, Burrator, is of interest itself. A ‘tor’ as the dictionary tells us, is a rocky hill or peak, very significant to our Te Aroha Mountain, and Burrator is one of the many homeland peaks for the Axford family, found on the moors of Devon and Cornwall back in England. He produced the paper, at least after the first few issues, by means of a ‘hectograph’. Nowadays, when we have become so dependent upon photocopying, emailing, scanning, q-codes, phone apps etc. It is a little difficult to remember the days when we used ’xeroxing’, a ‘gestetner’ or a ‘roneo’ and impossible to recall the many years

before that the use ‘hectograph’. Ted described in the sixth issue that from one ink original, it could produce any number of facsimile copies, but with the writing in purple, as opposed to the original in black, and the long process of producing the paper.

Community Organisation News TE AROHA FREEMASONS Te Aroha Lodge first came to light in 1884 when the community of the town was mainly gold miners. The original Charter still hangs in the Te Aroha Lodge rooms in Paeroa, dated 1st May, 1884 and many of our streets are named after some of the more prominent members of the lodge. In 1887 a section of land between Whitaker and Church Streets was acquired and the first lodge was erected. One of the members of the lodge left a written account of this, "members who were carpenters gave two or more days of labour while others gave the equivalent of those two or more days or sent a man to assist at their expense. The first Te Aroha lodge was of the Scottish Constitution, but in 1890 became a supporter and later named a member of the newly formed New Zealand branch of Freemasonry and in 1890 was issued with its warrant and number being that of number 52 on the Grand Role Register of New Zealand. The Te Aroha lodge still meets every month at its lodge rooms in paeroa and welcome any enquiries about all aspects of Freemasonry. For further information you can contact Mike Mahon, secretary eith at PO Box 12, Te Aroha or phone 022 681 3571 or email


About 20 people attended the gluten-free afternoon tea held on Monday, 27th May at the Catholic Church Lounge. They sampled some beautiful food while browsing through recipe books, collecting pamphlets and checking out the display of gluten-free products. A support group for those with coeliac disease and/or on gluten-free diets is planned for Te Aroha with meetings every two months, the first to be towards the end of July. If you are interested in coming along, please contact Dorothy Morrissey, 07-884-6098.

Community Organisation News LIONS CLUB OF TE AROHA Cont from pg 1 to the cycle trail entrance to the town. This will be an on-going project over a number of years. To generate funds the club tender for the telephone book distribution contract, operate a casualty calf collection, run firewood raffles, hold charity golf tournaments and similar fundraiser events. Te Aroha Lions work with our fellow service clubs to achieve community projects. An example of this cooperation was the purchase of a king size electric bed for the hospice room at Te Aroha Hospital instigated by Te Aroha Mountain Lions Club and this year we assisted Te Aroha Rotary Club with their Youthline fundraiser auction. In early December for the last 36 years, Te Aroha Lions have performed at Te Aroha Hospital and Kenwyn Home singing Christmas carols for the rest home residents. Since 1925 the Lions organisation has assisted the blind. One of their projects has been the collection and distribution of old reading glasses and spectacles to under-developed countries worldwide. Collecting up old spectacles for re-use in the Pacific islands is an ongoing project for New Zealand Lions and your unwanted specs can be delivered to any Lion member. Other collections undertaken by Lions are the ‘Heads up for Kids’ project, which collects old and foreign currency which is returned to the Reserve Bank for face value payment. The money raised, is used to fund education programmes for young New Zealanders who would otherwise not get the opportunity. Nationwide over $325,000.00 has been raised to date. Lions also collect aluminium can tabs and wine bottle tops which provides a return for the Kidney Kids Foundation, an organisation which supports children with kidney disorders. If you have old currency, can tabs and wine bottle tops you can pass these on to any Te Aroha Lions member.


The month of May has been a very busy one for our Rotary Club. Daphne Ellis was a guest speaker earlier in the month and her talk about Dogs for the Hearting Impaired was very enlightening. This is an area of help that we were not aware of and the difference that trained dogs make to a hearing impaired person is amazing. We recommend Daphne to any organisation which is need of a good, informative speaker. On May 15 Gary Talbot. QSM MIFireE, Manager, Thames Valley Emergency Operating Area which includes Hauraki, Coromandel and Matamata Piako districts was keynote speaker at the annual urban/rural evening. It was excellent having a speaker of his calibre who knew his subject so thoroughly and showed a power point presentation which pictured photos of various catastrophes in our area. The beneficiaries of this evening were Te Aroha Fire Brigade, St John and our local hospital who each received a cheque for $300. Our raffle at Countdown was won by a ticket in the name of Jackson ($150) and second was Coombe ($50). Thanks to all who supported this fundraising effort which goes towards the annual scholarships we give to Te Aroha College. Changeover night, when Rotary changes presidents and starts

SENIORNET – A Valuable Community Facility throughout NZ This year SeniorNet celebrates its 21st year of operation in New Zealand and its 10th year in Te Aroha – that’s 21 years of helping New Zealanders over the age of 50 come to grips with technology and participate in this so called “Age of Technology”. We are immensely proud of our achievements. In over 80 Learning Centres right throughout the country our willing volunteer tutors have trained, coached, coerced even cudgelled over 250,000 people into becoming confident users of Computers, Digital Cameras, Smartphones, Tablet devices and the software challenges that go with them. The success of SeniorNet is quite simply our approach to learning – seniors teaching seniors. We discovered early on that people over 50 prefer to learn new technology from people of about their own age in an environment that is both friendly and non-competitive. In many ways our Centres resemble small country schools. Wherever possible we prefer to have no more than six people in any one session with two volunteer tutors, who are actually more like coaches, guiding their students. Our tutors are not “geeky know it all’s” - which is often the vision people have of a person teaching technology – we find the best tutors are those who are just a few steps ahead of their students so really the learning is very much a collaborative environment. Many people come to our Centres so they can up-skill for future employment, like learning how to master spread sheets or word processing skills needed in a work situation. Perhaps the greatest need is for people to learn the modern communication skills associated with the internet, such things as email etiquette, social media (such as Facebook) and how to Skype etc. Make this year your year to improve your technology skills. More information about SeniorNet Te Aroha (Inc) and classes can be found by calling - Lyndsay Noble - 884 9299, Carole Keightley 884 9737, Dave Clark - 889 7987.


The Lions Club of Te Aroha has been well involved in recent months supporting a number of community run events and community organisations. We have assisted with the set up and clean up of Domain Day, Security for the Youth Empowerment Service talent quest, a working bee at the Te Aroha playcentre, and are presently undertaking a tidy up of the Library garden. Te Aroha Lions also assisted with security at the Balloons over Waikato on April 6th. As Lions were the Charity of Choice, the funds raised from this event will be donated to the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society’s Lions Lodge. The Lodge is a very special facility that provides a relaxing, modern and friendly environment and a “home away from home” for people while they are undergoing treatment for Cancer. At our March and April dinner meetings, funds were distributed to assist a number of community organisations. At the March meeting the Te Aroha Community Hospital ($1000); Te Aroha Toy Library ($500); Te Aroha Dramatic Society ($500) each received donations. The Riding for the Disabled, Te Aroha Community Patrols and the Red Cross community van were recipients of $500 donations by Te Aroha Lions Club at our April dinner meeting. Representatives from each organisation spoke about how they intended to use the funds to continue the great work they all do for the community. The Lions Club of Te Aroha is proud to support these worthy community organisations.
