Bring on the new year

A

nother year bites the dust and already we are looking ahead to 2018. 2017 has been a busy year for all the staff here at the Guardian, the launch of the Ashburton App has been an exciting time for everyone, learning about a new news platform and balancing it alongside our print and digital platforms. We’ve learned new things and proudly pulled together lots of different parts of the community to pack the app full of great features and information that suit all ages. Being at the heart of the community continues to be a key focus for everyone at the Guardian. Shop Local returned for its second year and we were able to make one lucky person $2500 richer just before Christmas. Elderly wishes also returned for its second year and we all have rolled our sleeves up and baked, cleaned and done a fair bit of gardening. Not forgetting the collection for the Salvation Army, ably assisted by two wonderful local little helpers. So, from everyone at the Guardian, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and hope you have a wonderful time with family and friends.

Top toy presents for 2017 There are some weird and wonderful toys making the top “must have” lists this year. Make sure you have at least one tucked in the little one’s stockings this year! From the cute and cuddly through to the collectables, there is something for all ages to enjoy.

FINGERLINGS Fingerlings are adorable baby monkeys that are curious about the world around them – starting with you! These interactive pets love to hang on to your finger, blink their eyes, turn their heads, blow kisses, swing by their tails, and talk in monkey babble!

FEISTY PETS We’ve all heard the saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” Well the same can be said for animals. There is a reason that most animals enclosures at zoos warn that although the wild animals look friendly and cuddly, they can bite. No creature illustrates the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde qualities of animals better than Feisty Pets! Those cute and cuddly plush animals turn deadly when just a squeeze of the head reveals shifty eyes and sharp teeth! (Squeeze our heads and we’ll reveal shifty eyes and sharp teeth, too!)

Merry Christmas from the team at Professionals Methven Real Estate

Many Kiwi children will NOT get presents this year You can help make a difference by donating a present Just drop an unwrapped present into Professionals Methven by Monday, December 18 and Birthright will distribute the gifts to the families in your area who need it the most.

You are cordially invited to Carols for Christmas at Holy Name lawn, corner of Winter and Sealy Streets Friday, December 22, 7pm Hosted by Ashburton Christian Ministers’ Association • Bring your own seats and this carol sheet (If wet, venue will be the Holy Name Church, Sealy St) CAROL 1 O COME ALL YE FAITHFUL O come, all ye faithful, Joyful and triumphant, O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem; Come and behold Him Born the King of angels: O come let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord! Sing, choirs of angels, Sing in exultation, Sing, all ye citizens of Heaven above; Glory to God in the highest: Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, Born this happy morning; Jesus, to Thee be glory given; Word of the Father, Now in flesh appearing: CAROL 2 ONCE IN ROYAL DAVID’S CITY Once in royal David’s city, Stood a lowly cattle shed, Where a mother laid her baby In a manger for His bed; Mary was that mother mild, Jesus Christ her little child. He came down to earth from Heaven Who is God and Lord of all,

And His shelter was a stable; And His cradle was a stall; With the poor and mean and lowly Lived on earth our Saviour holy. And our eyes at last shall see Him Through His own redeeming love; For that child so dear and gentle Is our Lord in Heaven above; And He leads His children on To the place where He is gone. CAROL 3 HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS Hark! The herald angels sing: Glory to the new-born King; Peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled. Joyful, all ye nations rise, Join the triumph of the skies; With the angelic host proclaim, Christ is born in Bethlehem. Hark! The herald angels sing: Glory to the new-born King. Christ, by highest Heaven adored, Christ, the everlasting Lord, Late in time behold Him come, Offspring of a virgin’s womb. Veiled in flesh the Godhead see; Hail the incarnate Deity! Pleased as man with man to dwell, Jesus, our Immanuel.

Hail the Heaven-born Prince of Peace! Hail the sun of righteousness! Light and life to all He brings, Risen with healing in His wings. Mild He lays His glory by, Born that man no more may die, Born to raise the sons of earth, Born to give them second birth. CAROL 4 WHILE SHEPHERDS WATCHED While shepherds watched their flocks by night All seated on the ground, The angel of the Lord came down, And glory shone around. Fear not! Said he; for might dread Had seized their troubled mind; Glad tidings of great joy I bring To you and all mankind. To you, in David’s town this day Is born, of David’s line, A Saviour, who is Christ the Lord; And this shall be the sign; The heavenly babe you there shall find To human view displayed All meanly wrapped in swathing bands, And in a manger laid. Thus spake the seraph, and forthwith Appeared a shining throng Of angels, praising God, and thus

Addressed their joyful song: All glory be to God on high, And to the earth be peace; Goodwill henceforth from Heaven to men Begin and never cease! CAROL 5 THE FIRST NOWELL The first nowell the angel did say Was to certain poor shepherds In fields as they lay; In fields where they lay keeping their sheep, On a cold winter’s night That was so deep. Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell, Born is the King of Israel. They looked up and saw a star, Shining in the east beyond them far, And to the earth it gave great light, And so it continued both day and night. And by the light of that same star, Three wise men came from country far, To seek for a King was their intent, And to follow the star wherever it went. Then entered in those wise men three, Full reverently upon their knee, And offered there in His presence

There’s no open sleigh, The sun will shine so hot; Presents we will give, Show we love a lot. Lots of cards are sent, Telephone’s gone wild, It is the birthday of our Lord, The coming of The Child. Jesus Christ was born, It happened long ago; Mary was the Mum, Son for her and Joe’. Special Child was this, Son of God was He, To bring true Light and Love and Hope, To guide both you and me CAROL 11 JOY TO THE WORLD Joy to the world! The Lord is come; Let earth receive her King, Let every heart prepare Him room, And heaven and nature sing, And heaven and nature sing, And heaven, and heaven and nature sing. Joy to the world! The Saviour reigns; Let men their songs employ, While fields and floods, Rocks hills and plains Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat, repeat the sounding joy. He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove The glories of His righteousness And wonders of His love, And wonders of His love, And wonders, wonders of His love.

Shop Local ‘n’ Win winner Choosing to back local Ashburton businesses has paid off big time for one delighted Tinwald resident. Among more than 8,500 entries into the Guardian’s Shop Local ‘n’ Win campaign, Pauline Kerr was drawn as the lucky winner of the a $2,500 cash prize. Having run the café at Silver Fern Farms and more recently Boston Burger with her husband Bruce, Pauline knows first-hand the value of supporting local shopping. After reading about the campaign in the Guardian she enthusiastically jumped on board and filled out a number of entry forms at participating businesses around town. But it was her ticket completed at Tinwald Liquorland which was drawn as the lucky winner. Ashburton Guardian General Manager Desme Daniels delivered the news to an absolutely delighted Pauline over the phone. After the excitement and shock had worn off, Pauline and Bruce had some discussions over how to spend the money. Top of the list? A new kitchen oven. According to Pauline, she and Bruce, now happily retired, had wanted to buy one last year – but it never happened. She now has the opportunity to spend the money with local businesses and purchase the oven – and perhaps use a little left over for a small trip
