Scott Simpson, M P Coromandel Changes to postal services In Te Aroha picking up our mail in the morning is probably something most of us just take for granted. But some changes to the way we receive our mail are unfortunate but necessary in order to ensure we retain a sustainable postal service into the future. The reality is NZ Post is a commercial company that like any others must be financially viable. As a consequence of email, electronic banking, text messaging and other forms of modern communication, mail volumes are dropping and will continue to fall. The postal service carried 328 million fewer items in the 2012/2013 financial year compared to 2002. Yet the number of addresses the service needs to reach is increasing. From July 2015 New Zealand Post will only be required to deliver mail three days a week in urban areas. This will be a minimum requirement and in high volume areas the company may provide additional days. There is good news for those of us on Rural Delivery routes which will continue five days a week. The changes are still a couple of years away and will affect householders to varying degrees depending on where they live in the Te Aroha area. However, most I have spoken with to date view it as something minor that will make no material difference to their lives. Mail volumes are declining not just in New Zealand but right across the world. The trend is not something NZ Post or the Government can ignore or the eventual consequences will be extremely serious. The new arrangements are a realistic compromise that will give us a sustainable postal service with minimal effect on customers.

televisions across the country have been collected after owners dropped them off at designated sites for a subsidised fee of $5. Schools are also being encouraged to get involved with great prizes on offer for participating Enviroschools. There are 18 collection centres in Waikato. The closest to Te Aroha is the Waihou Refuse Transfer Station. The recycled TVs are broken into parts with most of the materials re-used in industries both here and overseas. This is a hugely better outcome than if sent to landfill where they can cause significant environmental damage.

Recycle your TV The Government’s highly successful TV Takeback programme was launched in the upper North Island, including the Coromandel electorate, at the end of October. Through partnership with councils, recyclers and retailers, the programme means people with old TVs in the Te Aroha area have a low cost environmentally friendly option for disposing of it. The programme is being rolled out to coincide with the digital switchover in each region. So far 133,000

Community Information Te Aroha

TE AROHA

Thank you to everyone in our community who supported my endeavours to become your new Mayor and to the many candidates who allowed their names to go forward for the election. I am delighted to begin this journey with a great team of elected councillors. Welcome to our three new Councillors – James Thomas and Nicki Robb from Morrinsville and Brian Hunter from Matamata. We are a new, fresh team of Councillors who have many different strengths and attributes to share with our community and make a difference across the district. A special thank you to retiring Councillors, Carol Greenville and Mike Gribble, who have given great service to our district over many years. Over the next few weeks we will set up a framework for council working parties and our governance structure. These are exciting times. We have great staff, a great council and a great community. Vincent van Gogh once said: “Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together”. I look forward to the challenges of my first year, and I’m excited by this opportunity to serve our community. Kind regards, Jan Barnes Mayor

BUSINESS ASSOCIATION INCORPORATED

Cruisein. What a fantastic event the weather held off and the event was superb well done to all those involved this year it couldn’t be done without the support of the town. Business awards Well done to all those nominated and the winners of the 2013 business awards. BA5; The next BA5 is at Electrico 21st Nov. Please note that the BA5’s are open to members and non members so come along and see what great business’s our town has. “Gigga Town” The association have investigated the ability for us to enter the “Gigga Town” promotion that Chorus is running. The promotion will provide one NZ Town with Gigga bit internet connection for residences and business. However it appears that the offer is not available in Te Aroha. This raises questions around what provisions are being made for our Town and High speed internet. Making sure we at the front end of technology is crucial to our towns development, it has the ability to attract new investment and provides endless opportunities for our town but we need to make sure that Te Aroha is part of this initiative and not left behind. If anyone has knowledge around the issues of high speed internet or how we ensure that we are at the front end of any roll out we would love to hear. Street numbers. We have had a request that main street shops display their street numbers for safety reasons. Emergency services are having difficulty locating premises when street numbers are given, this ends in delays of services reaching those in need. We urge main st business to ensure that appropriate street numbering be placed on main street buildings to avoid any major issues in the future. Next Association meeting – 12th Nov 5:30 Palace Hotel Regards Shaun O’Neill, Chairman

With the warmer weather we are seeing lots of tourists out and about - especially young backpackers from Europe. They are keen to explore our great outdoors and love the freedom and accessibility of our forest parks. We all know that spring brings changeable weather in New Zealand and not every day is bright and sunny! If you’re looking for something to do on a windy or rainy day, we would recommend a tour of the District Heritage Trail. At 159.6km you can make a day of it or do as little as you like. There are 58 historic sites of interest listed in the Matamata-Piako District Heritage Trail booklet, which can be picked up from Te Aroha i-SITE for $5. There’s a wealth of information, a numbered map and some lovely old photos that show what the sites looked like in their day. For example – did you know that in the 1880’s and 1890’s there was a ‘Halfway House’ on Te Aroha-Gordon Rd “where coaches would stop and have their horses attended on their way to Rotorua. The proprietors were great hosts preparing meals for travelers and sightseers.” The booklet gives directions and distances to each site. This is a great rainy day activity to do with visiting friends and relatives as well as a history lesson on the area. Hot off the press are our “Te Aroha 2014” calendars packed full of gorgeous photos of our town. The calendar includes all Te Aroha’s major events for 2014 making it really handy to have on the wall. They also make lovely gifts to post to friends and relatives overseas or out of town. Thank you to everyone who contributed photos – there’s a complimentary calendar in the post for those people whose photos we included. We had great difficulty deciding which ones to include and we think you will find a nice variety in there. Here are three events on the calendar this month - The Community Garden Spring Open Day on the 3rd where you can learn how to start your own vege garden; the St Mark’s Parish Fair on the 16th with cakes and sweet stalls, produce and plants, sausages and hamburgers, morning tea, quick fire raffles and activities for children; and of course the 117th AP & H Show on Saturday the 16th - a lovely day out for the whole family! You can find out more about upcoming events in Te Aroha at www. tearohanz.co.nz/events Till next month - the i-SITE team

TE AROHA MOUNTAIN LIONS CLUB Celebrating Serving The Te Aroha Community Nearly seventy members attended the recent Te Aroha Annual Combined Service Clubs Dinner at the Te Aroha R.S.A. Hosted by the Te Aroha Mountain Lions Club this annual event bringing members of the Te Aroha Service Clubs, Te Aroha Lions, Te Aroha Rotary and Te Aroha Lodge, together to celebrate the work they all do in serving their community was 'a resounding success' commented President, Wanda Brittain. Ably facilitated by coordinator and M.C. Margaret Martin, the evening flowed smoothly with copious amounts of humour and social conviviality together with a delicious smorgasbord meal. However, the highlight of the evening was the refreshingly forthright, down-to-earth and humorous presentation given by the guest speaker, Mrs. Noela Vallis, from Matamata. Noela Vallis is the visionary founder behind the New Zealand Spinal Cord Society that was established in 1988 and became an incorporated society in 1991. It is a non-profit organisation for cure, research and treatment of spinal cord injury and related problems. SCSNZ was formed because of a great need for an organisation to work towards a cure of long-term (chronic) spinal cord injury. Noela's husband suffered a jet-boating accident in 1984 incapacitating him with paraplegia. It became a vision for Noela that she would raise funds to assist people with spinal injuries by supporting effective research towards the goal of a cure for spinal cord injury. Noela had this to say about her vision and passion for a cure to her captivated audience - “Within my lifetime, people who suffer injury to their spinal columns will be treated in hospital like anybody else with a serious breakage, and walk out again after a few weeks treatment. And they will resume their normal lives. Noela's longer-term goal was to establish a research laboratory in New Zealand, translate research into clinical treatments, and ensure New Zealanders would benefit directly from the money she raised. This dream has been achieved. Haematologist and Transfusion Medicine Specialist based in Dunedin, Dr. Jim Faed, is working for the University of Otago and the NZ Blood Service and leads the SCSNZ research team. He’s had a long standing interest in research in immunology, blood products and the health of blood donors. His research has included developing specialised methods for growing white blood cells in the laboratory to study antibody production. Those studies are now proving to be of great value as methods are developed for growing cells that maybe used for research on tissue repair. Dr Faed was initially approached for advice on setting up the Spinal Cord Society Laboratory in Dunedin in 2002 and was later asked to help lead the scientific development work. During the past twenty five years Noela Vallis has explored and resourced relevant scientific research projects around the world and cajoled, inspired and motivated leaders in science, government and private business to support her cause with amazing success. Her ability to source the much needed funding is to be envied and Te Aroha Mountain Lions Club President, Wanda Brittain, was delighted to present Noela with a cheque for $450 on behalf of the assembled service

clubs, towards the society's ongoing research. This was the total raised from the raffle and a lively Tail Twisting session. It was somewhat serendipitous that Noela also won the gourmet hamper in the raffle draw and the second prize was won by Robin and Lola Lockhead who are also founder members of the Spinal Cord Society. After the successful Te Aroha Lions, Mountain Lions and Rotary clubs project this year, raising funds for the electric bed for Te Aroha Hospital, the clubs are now investigating another joint project, this time, to raise further funds for the Spinal Cord Society in 2014. Te Aroha Mountain Lions Club members are now counting down to their annual Bumper Book Fair on the 1st and 2nd November where the proceeds will be going to the St. Johns Cadets Group and the Te Aroha Springs Community Trust. Doors open at 9.0'clock at the Catholic Hall. For further information contact Phillipa Davey 07 884 9781.

Heading to the Piako Fete for a Ladies Day Out Friday 15 November 2013, Daltons Plantation

Grab your girlfriends and head to Matamata for the best Ladies Day Out this summer. The Piako Fete is being held on Friday 15 November at Daltons Plantation and will host an eclectic mix of high quality stalls along with demonstrations, food and drink, a fashion show and live music entertainment. “Piako Fete is all about ladies having a great day out. We’ve rounded up fashion, beauty, cuisine, gardening and shopping against Daltons Plantation’s backdrop of 10 acres of beautiful landscaped display gardens,” says organiser Lynsey Champion. Among the demonstrators are top fashion stylist Megan Maher from Repertoire and Jill Mulvaney from Alembics, an artisan company which promotes the ancient skills of distilling essential oils in handcrafted copper stills. They will be joined by World Organics Skincare, The Nukes Ukulele Band and dozens of stall holders offering exclusive shopping opportunities including plants, clothing, crafts and arts for sale. “It’s an opportunity to have a girly indulgence day and get some Christmas shopping done,” says Lynsey. The inaugural Piako Fete in 2012 was attended by almost

1000 people and this year the line up of entertainment and shopping is even stronger with several artisan food vendors. Advance tickets are $19, available from eventfinder. co.nz ($25 at the gate) and a donation from profits will go to support the Waikato Breast Cancer Trust.

About Piako Fete Organisers Lynsey Champion, one of NZ’s finest cloth hat makers, and Michelle Lewis, a graphic designer started plotting their ideal pre-Christmas day out when the Ellerslie Flower Show moved to Christchurch leaving a void for a North Island Ladies Day Out. In 2012 the Waiheke based duo teamed up with Daltons Plantation to host the inaugural Piako Fete in Matamata, the epicentre of the North Island, almost. Modelled on the supremely successful fetes in the South Island, which Lynsey has attended several times as a stallholder, their aim is for the Piako Fete to become a well established annual event and earn the title of the ultimate Ladies Day Out. A donation from profits will be made to the Waikato Breast Cancer Trust towards more comfortable seating for patients receiving chemotherapy.

Waihou Hall Spawns a New Class A lively group of dancers enjoyed an evening of varied dancing so much they are now looking forward to regular dance classes in the Waihou Community Hall. The dances were all forms of ballroom dancing from waltzes to rock n’ roll, and the dancers ranged in age from 30 to eighty. The near eighty year olds enjoyed the music and chat a managed a couple of sedate dances, while the 30 year olds powered through the whole evening. George and Elaine Wright demonstrated and taught 4 dances for all to try and master, and the music was repeated until the dancers declared themselves masters. “We try to tailor our teaching to what the couples enjoy” explained George. “We have music that fits older traditional dances like the Maxina, and there are lots of more recent and more complicated dances to learn when the couples are ready.” Les Munro the Chairman of the Waihou Events Society expressed delight to have another group interested in using the Waihou Hall. “The original wooden floor is an ideal dance surface, and the café setting and soft lighting makes for a relaxed evening of exercise and chat. People particularly enjoyed the polonaise dances which mixed everybody up and involved all the dancers in the fun”

Kids are Coming Back to Waihou We are excited to be able to offer a great Xmas concert in the Waihou Hall on Friday the 29th November. The Elstow / Waihou primary school children will be singing and dancing on stage followed by the Pavarotti Singers and the Mighty River Harmony ; “Youngies” followed by “Oldies” and an expanded Barbershop Quartet! “This will be a Waihou focused evening,” said Les, “But all are welcome. The Piako Concert Brass band will be playing traditional carols and Bunnings are providing a barbeque to complete the evening. The concert will start at 6.00pm sharp and entry will be by a gold coin donation.” Dance classes will be held each Friday from 1st November 7.30 to 9.30pm, and the dance evenings will be held each third Friday of the month. Entry costs only $5.00 each, and all who are interested are welcome to come along. Contact : George Wright (07) 884 4457 or Les Munro (07) 884 7210

TE AROHA COELIAC/GLUTEN-FREE SUPPORT GROUP Our get-together on 23 September was a great success. Hopes (and a table) for a group of about eight were considerably exceeded when more than double that number turned up. The Organic Health Shop was nearly bursting at the steams, but we all really enjoyed the chance to have a chat and swap stories with like-minded people, so much so that we are going to do it again, hopefully this time in a more open setting. There are plans to have the outdoor area of the shop organised by the time we meet again, so we should have a bit more room to move around. As always, delicious food, great coffee and hot chocolate, all definitely gluten-free, will be available for purchase. The next gathering will be on Monday, 25 November at 10,00 am at the same venue, with a bit of luck outside in the sun. For any further information please phone Dorothy 8846098 or Pam 884-4449.

Te Aroha & District Museum We urgently require helpers at the Museum, especially on the weekends. Hours are between 11-4 in summer and 12-3 in winter. One day a month would be a fantastic help, training given. If you are able to help keep our local Museum open 7 days a week, please contact Daphne Ellis 8844347.

LITERACY WAIKATO Literacy Waikato is a small, not for profit organisation that has been providing individual tuition, at no direct cost to learners, since 1977. We work with adults to help improve their literacy, numeracy and communication skills. People are motivated by a variety of reasons to seek assistance - sometimes there are new challenges with paperwork in a new job, they may want to help their children with their homework, read to their grandchildren or want to gain a new qualification but their literacy skills let them down. Part of the mission of the organisation is that everyone has the right to learn literacy skills and should not have to pay for it, so there is no cost for tutoring. Surveys have shown that 43% of working adults do not have the literacy skills they need to do their jobs. There are similar figures in other countries. Literacy Waikato works with adults who are New Zealand citizens or permanent residents. After an initial assessment, learners are matched with a tutor, after which they will generally meet once a week for an hour, during school term time. The location and time are set between the learner and tutor. Tutoring is available in your local area. For further information, please call 07 834 8880 or 027 848 0530.

Ladies for Hire:

The Te Aroha Dramatic Society’s latest production is written by New Zealander Alison Quigan. Though probably best known for her 7 years playing Shortland Street receptionist Yvonne, theatre has long been Alison’s second home. She spent 18 years as artistic director at Palmerston North's Centrepoint Theatre, has acted, directed 60 plus plays and written extensively for the stage. “Ladies for Hire” is about a group of ladies who have sung it all! Christenings, weddings, funerals, they've seen them all come and go, the good, the bad and the downright ugly. It’s a drama on the High C’s! which strikes more than a few sour notes. The strong threads running through this play are its believable characters and the relationships that bind them, the play's dialogue sparkles and is laced with quick earthy and ironic wit. And through it all, they sing - in harmonious expressions of hope, friendship and love. Alison has beautifully crafted this modern story of leadership and loyalty when faith is tested. Thought provoking as well as fun, “Ladies for Hire” is entertainment as in tune with the season, as it is with the times. Opening at the Te Aroha Little Theatre on Wednesday 20th November and running on 21st,22nd,28th, 29th & 30th at 8:00pm with a matinee at 2:00pm on Saturday 23rd.

TE AROHA FREEMASONS Masonry also known as Freemasonry is the oldest and largest fraternity in the world with some five million members worldwide, there is no other organization where a man can walk into a room of strangers anywhere in the world and immediately be welcomed and honoured as a friend and brother. It is open to all men of good standing and has no regard for differences in a person’s race, colour, creed or their station in life and we have many members from all walks of life. While its moral philosophy is founded on religious principles, it is not a religion or a substitute for one and religion and politics are never discussed in our meetings. We do not solicitate for members unlike many other organizations, but always welcome any man with good morals and who profess a belief in a supreme being; any man seriously desirous of serving humanity only need ask a member to petition for membership. If you like structure with self-discipline it’s a great challenge and a lot of fun. We are not a secret organization as some people may believe, but like all organization we do have confidentiality’s, with the wide access everyone has to the internet there is a vast amount of both positive and negative information on Freemasonry, a good site to have a look at if you are interested further is www.freemasons.co.nz or should you wish to contact Te Aroha Freemasons direct just give us a call for a friendly chat, you can call myself David Freeman on 07 8844364.

Our Village Garden : Te Kete o Te Aroha

SPRING OPEN DAY Sunday 3rd November 11am to 3pm

Rotary had been asked to organise and run the auction of the Monk Family Estate garden tools, carpentry and plumbing gear. This was held on Saturday October 12 and all proceeds will eventually go to the Te Aroha Community and District Hospital. Charlie Mace organised this very successful day and over $14,000 was raised. John F Jones and company were the auctioneers and they gave all their time free of charge and it was an enjoyable day all round. We still have fertiliser for sale and attach here the uses of this. Order forms are still available at Don Edwards Photography shop or you can phone 884 9521 Tom Stephenson for order. SUGGESTIONS FOR FERTILISER USE NPK Fertiliser: A nitrogen, phosphate and potassium fertiliser blended for the garden lover. Great for lawns, vegetables and general garden use. Lime: Annual dressing on lawns, addition to compost bins will raise pH of the compost and general garden use to raise pH or add calcium. Be careful around acid-loving plants eg rhododendrons and camellias. Peat moss: For mulching around the garden, for adding to compost bins or used as part of a potting mix. Acid loving plants love it. Chicken Manure: A natural fertiliser mixed with shavings from the chicken sheds. It is rich in nitrogen, phosphate, potassium, magnesium, sulphur and calcium. One of the best for side dressing around the drip line of citrus trees in early spring and autumn and for side dressing those vegetable plants throughout the season, especially potatoes. Good for adding to compost bins. Dalton’s compost: Full of natural goodies for mulching around the flower and vegetable garden. Also good around roses and trees. Compost bins love it. Our Facebook page is under the name of Rotary of Te Aroha if you are curious to see more of what we are doing in our area and overseas. If you are interested in knowing more about Rotary please contact the secretary on 884 9521. To learn more about Rotary activities we have a website which promotes our district 9930 on Rotary.org.nz.
